We are hiring:

The Wang Lab in the Department of Biological Sciences, University of Toronto Scarborough welcomes inquiries to join and visit. People motivated to use fungi to understand evolutionary genomic and symbiotic questions are especially encouraged to contact me. Several openings for graduate students are currently available. For potential postdoctoral fellows, please contact me and we can discuss funding opportunities. I am always glad to hear from prospective team members and develop mutually interested projects.

Research activities in the laboratory include field collection (aquatic fungi and insects), bench work (culture curation, DNA extraction, PCR, host-microbe interaction, etc.), and computational analyses (genome assemblies, annotation, comparative genomics, and phylogenomics). If you are interested in working with me, please feel free to send me an email with your CV and a brief research statement summarizing your research interests and experience. Multiple funding opportunities are also available (NSERC, UTSC, SGS, Arts & Science, CSC). Interested graduate students should apply through the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology program at University of Toronto. The deadline is Jan. 7th each year. More details can be found here.

Undergraduate students are also important in our academic community. If you are an undergraduate student and would like to gain research experience in Ecology and Evolution, Genomics, Mycology, Symbiosis, or Systematics, I am more than glad to chat with you. Multiple opportunities (research course credits, independent study, honours projects, summer assistantship, etc.) are available to support a great research project.
