PhD Position in Disease Ecology at East Carolina University (ECU): One Ph.D.
position is available in the newly formed lab of Dr. Seth Barribeau in the Department of Biology (http://www.ecu.edu/biology/) at East Carolina University (Greenville, NC). The Barribeau lab focuses on the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite interactions, working mostly with ecologically important insects like bumblebees. There are a number of potential projects available and the successful applicant will have a major role in determining the direction of the research. For detailed information, please see the following websites: http://www.ecu.edu/cs-cas/biology/barribeau_seth.cfm and http://seth.barribeau.com

Enthusiastic, motivated, and curious students are strongly encouraged to apply. Having skills or experience in evolutionary ecology, host-parasite interaction, immunology, or similar areas, as well as proficient writing and speaking skills are preferred. Mad skills in molecular genetics, bioinformatics, or beekeeping would be great, but we will help you work on those. Sense of humor is also a plus. But being a decent, preferably nice, human being is essential. The Department of Biology offers a lively community of researchers to interact with, providing great opportunities for collaboration. Information on the PhD Interdisciplinary Program in Biological Science can be found at http://www.ecu.edu/idpbs/. ECU is the
third largest campus in the University of North Carolina system and is situated fairly close to the Atlantic coast and Outer Bank Islands, and the Research Triangle. The department has a strong integrative research program with numerous avenues of student support including student scholarships, travel to conferences, and genomics research. Interested students should send a CV, a brief (less than 500 words) description of research interests, and contact information of two references to Dr. Seth Barribeau (barribeaus14 [at] ecu [dot] edu). Interviews will begin on December 15 2015 and continue until the positions are filled. Please contact Dr. Barribeau with any questions you may have: Department of Biology, East Carolina University Greenville, NC 27858.
