Scientific Interests

We are interested in individuals who are passionate about any aspect of microbial biodiversity, community assembly, and spatial organization.


Our group consists of individuals from a wide variety of scientific and engineering disciplines. You do not need to have a biology background. Current and former members include engineers, physicists, environmental scientists, microbiologists, molecular biologists, ecologists, and evolutionary biologists. While the majority of our group members are experimentalists, their work often incorporates computational modelling. We therefore highly encourage computational modellers to also inquire about opportunities.

Employment type

Opportunities exist to join our group at any academic level. B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. students, and postdoctoral researchers are welcome to inquire about opportunities. We also support visiting students and researchers from other laboratories.

Next step

If you are interested in joining the group, please contact Dave Johnson directly to discuss opportunities.
