Full Description

Dr. Andrew Wargo is seeking a graduate student to begin in the fall of 2017, studying the ecology and/or evolution of infectious disease. Dr. Wargo currently has NIH and USDA funding to investigate how disease management practices, such as selective breeding and vaccination, impact pathogen transmission, ecology, evolution, and epidemiology.  There are currently opportunities for a student to pursue projects in these or related topics.  It is also possible to investigate other topics within disease ecology and evolution, dependent on successful securement of funding.  Applicants are encouraged to discuss their research interests in their personal statement.  For more information about the Wargo lab please visit:
