Dr. Justus Fink, a current postdoc and former graduate student in the Quantitative Evolutionary Microbiology (Manhart) Lab in CABM, has been awarded one of 59 postdoctoral fellowships from the Human Frontier Science Program.  HFSP fellowships are intended to support new, high-risk projects in the life sciences and to cultivate international collaborations; fellows must carry out this work with a mentor that they have not previously collaborated with and in a country different from where their Ph.D. was conferred.


Justus will pursue a project on “Microbial Consortia with Direct Electron Transfer: in situ Visualization of Community Robustness.”  He will carry out this research in the laboratory of Dr. Victoria Orphan at the California Institute of Technology.
