Thank you for your interest in the Hirao lab. My lab conducts work on a broad range of topics in forest ecology and community ecology, from the ecosystem-level effects of biodiversity to plant-microbe-animal interactions. I welcome motivated students and postdocs who are interested in these topics or related areas. I encourage students to design their own research projects and help them reach their goals. If you are interested in joining my lab, please send me an email with your CV and research interests.
