Postdoc at UNC Chapel Hill in parasite species interactions across scales

The Mitchell Lab at UNC Chapel Hill seeks a postdoctoral researcher to work on a project funded by the NSF-NIH-USDA joint program in the Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases.

The postdoc will conduct and analyze field-based research on parasite coinfections, including priority effects and cross-scale interactions.  The project leverages an experimentally tractable system, with the opportunity to collaborate on an established long-term experiment as well as to conduct additional short-term experiments.  The postdoc will also have the opportunity to collaborate with other research groups on parasite population genetics, host microbiome analysis, and mathematical modeling.

To apply, please email Charles Mitchell ( a CV and brief cover letter including your potential start date.  Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
