Postdoctoral Research Opportunities

Information for Prospective Postdocs

Currently, I am welcoming enquiries from potential postdocs in the fields of microbial evolution, microbial ecology, population genomics, experimental evolution and microbial phylogenetics. Research topics should be close enough to my area of interest/research that I can provide sufficient guidance. Some current research topics in my lab include experimental evolution of bacterial symbionts, phylogenetic analyses, field studies of wild symbionts and their hosts, as well as greenhouse and field infections. There are several potential opportunities for postdoc funding in my lab. The University of California, Riverside offers the Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellowship, a prestigious two-year fellowship that cultivates diversity in science, engineering and mathematics. Applications are due in mid January.

Please contact me directly ( with any questions.
