Open positions in the DeAngelis lab

Submitted by kristend on Wed, 05/17/2017 - 13:54

We are always looking for graduate students to work on defining genetic and genomic proxies of carbon use efficiency (CUE), microbial traits associated with chronic stress and climate change, improving lignocellulosic biofuels, and bioinformatics to enhance our understanding of links between genotypes and phenotypes in isolates and mixed communities. The successful candidates are interested in microbial ecology and physiology of soil organisms, and integration of microbial physiology, community interactions and modeling. Please contact the PI for more details.

The DeAngelis lab is looking for undergraduate students to help research the effect of climate change on microbes. If one of the projects (described after the jump) seems interesting to you, please contact Kristen (deanglis@microbio.umass.edu). Include your resume or CV and indicate which opportunity you are most interested in. We look forward to meeting you!

In January of 2014, we were notified of the acceptance of our proposal for funding, entitled "Changes in Soil Carbon Dynamics in Response to Long-Term Soil Warming - Integration Across Scales from Cells to Ecosystems". This award is for three years of study, and the PIs are Dr. Kristen DeAngelis, Dr. Jeffrey Blanchard (UMass Biology) and Dr. Jerry Melillo (The Ecosystems Center, MBL).
