MS or PhD Assistantship (plant pathology) at Penn State University, University Park, PA

Field of Study: Plant PathologyPenn State

A Masters (MS) or Doctorate (PhD) assistantship is available in the Department of Plant Pathology and Environmental Microbiology at Penn State University. This project is concentrated on developing bio-fungicides and investigating cultural factors for diseases of the cultivated mushroom (Agaricus bisporus). The successful candidate is expected to help develop and manage his/her research project as well as analyze and present findings. Publication of relevant findings in Extension and peer reviewed sources will be expected.

MS Assistantship (plant pathology) at University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN

Field of Study: Plant Pathology, plant scienceUMN

The Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Minnesota is currently accepting applications for a Graduate Student Research Assistant position to conduct research on the biology of the tomato leaf mold fungus, Passalora fulva, in high tunnel operations. The student will investigate overwintering of the fungus in Minnesota high tunnels, characterize the diversity of P. fulva in MN, and conduct assays to evaluate biological, cultural, and chemical approaches for managing leaf mold in high tunnels. The position will be directed by Dr. Angela Orshinsky. The project will require frequent travel to grower- and university-owned high tunnels across the state to conduct the studies and collect isolates. The project will have a heavy extension component and will give the student an opportunity to learn about extension education and effective communication skills for different types of audiences. This assistantship will include some basic molecular biology work, but is best suited to a candidate that is interested in extension education and applied research.

PhD Assistantship (Rangelands Ecology) at University of Florida, Gainesville, FL

Field of Study: Rangelands ecology, animal scienceU of Florida

Graduate Student Research Assistantship (PhD) in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation available for a highly motivated cross disciplinary individual to fulfill within the newly established Sustainable Rangeland Ecosystem Program of Dr Raoul Boughton, at the Range Cattle Research and Education Center, University of Florida. The student’s home department will be Wildlife, Ecology and Conservation. The research assistantship duties will be based at the Range Cattle Research and Education Center that is 3.5 hrs from the main campus of Gainesville, as such personal transportation and travelling is a must. A high level of flexibility will be granted to allow for course requirements to be completed in Gainesville. Dissertation research is to be developed by the student in collaboration with Dr Boughton and should be focused around ecosystem services supporting wildlife that rangelands provide and/or wildlife – cattle ranching interactions.

MS Assistantship (entomology) at Auburn University, Auburn, AL

Field of Study: EntomologyAuburn U

The Hardy Lab at Auburn University is seeking a M.S. student. The lab’s research is geared towards documenting the taxonomic and ecological diversity of plant-feeding insects, and understanding the evolutionary factors that have generated that diversity. The student will receive training in entomology, systematics, comparative phylogenetics and bioinformatics, and will conduct research relating to the lab’s research themes.

Start Date: There is some flexibility with the start date: either fall of 2014, or spring of 2015.

MS Assistantship (entomology) at South Dakota State University, Brookings, SD

Field of Study: EntomologySDSU

Quantify population levels of soybean aphid and other arthropod pests, and determine yield and seed composition between a standard and an early maturity variety of soybean each planted relatively early and relatively late. Ultimately, the research should provide information of practical interest to soybean producers.

Start Date: Fall 2014 (preferred) or Spring 2015
