Microbial ecology and insect-microbial symbiosis

Join Us


I do not currently have funding to hire a postdoc. However, if you are interested in applying for a fellowship (NSF, NIH, USDA, Ford, LSRF, etc) and are looking for a potential mentor/advisor, and you think our research aligns, please reach out. If funding does become available to hire a postdoc for a specific project in the future, the job ad will be shared here.
