Announcing the availability of a PhD research fellowship in Rural Sociology at Penn State University. The successful student will be funded as part of a The Pennsylvania State University Microbiome Center initiative to start Fall 2018. Five Ph.D. fellows will be funded, one of which will focus on social dimensions of microbiome research and applications of that research. Fellows will engage in an interdisciplinary effort to understand how microbiomes interact directly, as a result of microbial flow from food cultivation through human digestion, and
indirectly, through their chemical and physical influences on products at each stage. In addition to being part of the cohort, the student will be required to develop his/her own related but independent research project to fulfill the requirements of the PhD in Rural Sociology.
