We will be actively building the lab over the next few years, and will be recruiting new members who are passionate about plant microbiome. If you are interested in joining our lab, please get in touch! Send me a copy of your cv and an email outlining your research background and interests. (Dr. Josh Neufeld offers excellent advice on how to write a strong introductory letter here.)

Master/Graduate Students

We are always looking for graduate students to work on plant microbiome interactions, microbial traits associated with climate change, microbiome engineering, and bioinformatics to enhance our understanding of microbial modulators of plant productivity and health. The successful candidates are interested in microbial ecology and physiology of soil organisms, and integration of microbial physiology, community interactions and modeling. Interested candidates should contact Dr Pankaj Trivedi to discuss potential projects and funding possibilities.

Post-doctoral Researcher

The Trivedi and Ode Lab at Colorado State University seeks a postdoctoral researcher in the area of plant-vector-microbiome interactions. The successful candidate will conduct research to understand the interactions between Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (Las), the causal agent of Citrus greening its vector, the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), its host, citrus, and plant-vector associate microbiome.
Position is available immediately for at least one year and possibly further contingent upon funding availability. Research will be conducted in conjunction with the Cutrale Industry in Florida.
