Prospective students and postdocs:

If you are interested in joining our research group, please contact me to discuss mutual interests and the possible opportunities. Our research broadly covers mycology and fungal evolution, and we strive to have an intellectually strong, diverse research team. Please email with specific details of how your prior experience or future research is a good fit for our group. The EEB department at U. Michigan has a vibrant PhD program and master’s programs. Application deadlines are Dec. 1st. Currently, we will not be accepting students for Fall 2016 in order to devote full attention to existing student projects. An excellent opportunity for postdoctoral scholars looking to train towards a future academic position (research and teaching experience) is provided by the Michigan Society of Fellows program.
