Subject: PhD Studentship on insect-microbiome interactions available
A PhD studentship is available from Spring 2018 at the University of Florida Entomology and Nematology Department jointed with the Genetics Institute. 
This is an exciting opportunity for those interested in applying functional omics and big data science to study microbiome diversity and functions in applied insects. We are also developing a new insect model to study the ecology and evolution of V. Cholerae and multi-drug resistant bacteria.
The chosen individual will work in a dynamic team with 12 undergraduate interns, a lab manager and a (postdoctoral level) scientist. S/he will actively engage with our collaborators from the Emerging Pathogens Institute at UF, Cornell University, Harvard Medical School, various USDA stations and from overseas institutions.
If you are interested, please send me a CV, 2-3 reference letters and a 1-page research statement.
