I have resources to support one MS and one PhD student in a new agricultural insect ecology lab at Clemson University in beautiful upstate South Carolina.
My lab will focus on agricultural biodiversity (of soil microbes, plants, and
insects) and biological control of crop pests. While student research may complement ongoing work in the lab (see carmenblubaugh.com for details), I will also consider guiding worthy student projects that fall within the broad theme of predator/prey ecology, using crop systems as a model. To apply, please prepare a personal statement detailing your qualifications and career goals, as well as a separate research statement that describes and justifies your personal research objectives, based on current knowledge in the field.
Please email a CV and these two requested documents in a single pdf to email@example.com. Preliminary field work may begin as early as summer 2018.
