We seek to create a rigorous and creative environment where researchers from diverse backgrounds collaborate to understand microbial interactions with the ultimate goal of improving treatment strategies for human disease. Candidates with interest in interspecies microbial interactions broadly or in cystic fibrosis airway infections are encouraged to reach out to discuss research opportunities.



Interested candidates should write by email to discuss potential positions.


Graduate Students

Students with a strong academic record and interest in our research areas are always welcome to write or visit the lab to discuss opportunities. Current students in the Department of Microbiology Graduate Program interested in Winter or Spring rotations should contact Dr. Limoli via email.



Students with an interest in microbiology, bacterial genetics, or cystic fibrosis airway infections are encouraged to ask about working in the group for an honors thesis. Opportunities are also available through the Summer Research Experience for Undergrads (REU) in Microbiology.
