Prospective scientists

Lab members A. Hunter and K. Dixon pass by some ‘bugs in bags’ branches after a beautiful day in the field studying Douglas-fir tussock moths in Wenatchee, Washington.

We are currently recruiting undergraduate students whose interests include epidemiological modeling, field, and laboratory studies of insect pathogen systems. Students would ideally be interested working in the field, while also having a interest in learning quantitative tools available to ecologists.

Interested students are encouraged to contact PI Dwyer directly, stating their research interests and providing some information about their background. We welcome diverse applicants. Low-income and first-generation students are especially encouraged to apply.
