Principal InvestigatorAndrea Graham, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

About: Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a simple measure of immune defense that has been used as everything from an index of stress in mammals to an indicator of COVID-19 prognosis in humans. Despite this, there is little clarity on what factors might shape NLR and what it might actually tell us about the disposition of an organism's immune system.

Research Assistant Responsibilities: The RA will be working with Graham Group to develop a stronger understanding of the immunological meaning of NLR and re-analyze large datasets on NLR across many vertebrate species in light of this understanding.

Qualifications: Willingness to learn and to build a database carefully are a must; experience in statistical analysis would be useful but is not a prerequisite.
