Research in the Evolution and Ecology of Disease Systems laboratory lies at the interface between evolutionary biology, microbial ecology, and molecular genetics. We use molecular techniques, evolutionary theory, and computer modeling to elucidate the evolutionary forces that have shaped the history of populations. Our research focuses on interactions between eukaryotes and microbes of interest in public health (Lyme disease bacteria).
This position will perform statistical analyses, program and run advanced machine-learning algorithms, organize geospatial and temporal datasets. Gather data from databases, present data and data analyses in lab meetings and possibly national scientific meetings.
