A postdoctoral position is available to work in the Frank Lab in the
Department of Entomology at North Carolina State University, in
collaboration with Rob Dunn in the Department of Applied Ecology as well as
a broader group of scholars studying cities at NCSU. Funding will be
partially or fully to examine how urban heat islands and global climate
change affect urban and natural forest health. We are interested in the
influence of urban heat islands and, more generally, climate on tree pest
physiology, symbionts (of diverse sorts), trophic interactions, and the
distribution of tree associated taxa. We also consider how changes in urban
tree health and density affect human health.
