Oferta compartida por Cristina


The Chaudhary lab provides individual-centered mentorship utilizing multi-mentor models that center mentee career goals in a collaborative, co-learning environment. Applicants who self-identify as individuals from groups historically excluded from ecology and/or persons excluded because of their ethnicity or race (PEERs) are particularly encouraged to apply. All lab members contribute to the cultivation of an equitable, inclusive, and antiracist lab group.

Chaudhary Lab graduate students and postdoctoral researchers are a part of the Ecology, Evolution, Environment & Society (EEES) Program, a highly interactive and vibrant interdisciplinary community of over 100 faculty, graduate students, and post-docs. Dartmouth College is a research-intensive Ivy League university located in Hanover, New Hampshire, 2.5 hours northwest of Boston and nestled between the picturesque Green and White Mountains.

PhD Students
We are looking for 1-2 PhD students to join the lab beginning Fall 2023!
Students will develop an independent research trajectory broadly related to these research topics: the mechanisms of fungal community assembly at local and landscape scales and/or trait-based fungal dispersal and movement ecology using methods such as data synthesis, continent-scale field experiments, traditional microscopy, biophysics, and high-throughput sequencing of eDNA. All accepted PhD students are guaranteed 5 years of funding including summer salary and health insurance. No GRE or application fee is required.

To apply, please submit your CV and answers to 5 questions about your experience and interests before November 13 here: Selected applicants will be contacted for a Zoom interview ahead of the formal EEES application deadline on December 1 2022. Feel free to email me with any questions!

We recognize that the graduate application process can be opaque and difficult to navigate, presenting many barriers to prospective students. As part of efforts to increase the diversity and accessibility of graduate studies in ecology, evolutionary biology, environmental studies and earth systems, we encourage applicants to apply to the Dartmouth EEES Scholars Program, an in-person, fully funded 3-day workshop designed to demystify the graduate school application process. Applications are accepted in the spring for the fall workshop.
