Graduate position in plant-microbe interactions

The Lankau research group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is seeking a highly qualified PhD student to start Fall 2018 as part of an NSF funded project investigating the role of rhizosphere microbial communities in mediating range dynamics in tree species and populations in response to changing climates. The student would join a team including post-doctoral scholars, research technicians, and undergraduates, but would have substantial room to develop his/her dissertation focus within the broader project goals.

Students could pursue studies through several programs on campus.
