If you are interested in joining the Fuchs lab, contact Marc via email (mf13@cornell.edu) about opportunities for postdoctoral researchers, visiting scientists, graduate students and undergraduate students.
Opportunities for postdoctoral and visiting fellows
Research experience is available to visiting scientists and postdoctoral researchers with a proven track record of effective research outputs to investigate the nature of virus populations, contribute insights into the molecular connectivity of viruses and their hosts, and explore innovative approaches for disease management through RNAi.
Graduate Studies
Enthusiastic and highly motivated students with an interest in virus-host interactions, ecology of plant viruses and RNAi-mediated resistance to viruses are encouraged to contact us.  We aim to offer a friendly environment for independent research that fosters academic growth while encouraging active leadership and fulfilling career aspirations.  Promoting collegiality, and facilitating cooperative interactions across disciplines through interconnectivity and team efforts are extensively nurtured.  We have weekly lab meetings and students are encouraged to attend regular discussion groups (e.g. plant virus group, etc.) and seminars in the section and across campus.  Applications will be made through the Graduate Field of Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology with a December 1st deadline (https://pppmb.cals.cornell.edu/graduate/).
Undergraduate Research Opportunity
Participating in exciting research projects is an excellent chance for undergraduate students intending to enroll into graduate school or take up a career in research to explore experiential learning through the Summer Research Scholars Program (https://scholars.pppmb.cals.cornell.edu/).


Fuchs lab summer scholars Tori Poplaski (Oberlin College, 2016), Anuli Onwumelu (SUNY-ESF, 2017) and Alex Clarke (University of Missouri, 2017) present their research at the annual summer scholars research symposium.

Summer scholars take a break from the lab to hike the falls at the nearby Watkins Glen State Park.
