Considering a PhD program for next year? Want to work in Hawaii with incredible diversity of species with a new lab that is interested in a variety of mycological mysteries in Microbial Diversity, Ecology and Evolution or Community Ecology? Then may I recommend you take a look at two new labs in the Botany department at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, those of Dr Nicole Hynson and Dr Anthony Amend.
Dr Amend is interested in graduate students who would like to start in Fall 2013. His lab studies microbial communities and microbe-host interactions with recent projects on symbiotic relationships between plants and fungi and corals and fungi.
Dr Hynson’s work focuses on community ecology and studies the ecological factors that shape communities of plants and fungi and she is also accepting students to start in the Fall 2013.
