Essential skills for young mycologists

Nuske, Susan and Dearnaley, John (2015) Essential skills for young mycologists. IMA Fungus, 6 (2). pp. 47-50. ISSN 2210-6340


Students attracted to a research career in mycology are often interested in approaches that can help build towards such a professional future. In light of this need, a workshop in mycological skills was held recently for students and early career researchers (ECRs) at the 2015 scientific meeting of the Australasian Mycological Society (AMS) in Canberra, Australia. The workshop was organized and chaired by the AMS student representative Susan Nuske, and featured four AMS members with different areas of mycological research expertise. The presenters were Ana Traven (Medical Mycology), Jeff Powell (Fungal Ecology), Diana Leemon (Applied Mycology), and Tom May (Fungal Systematics). Their brief was to outline what had inspired them to become a mycologist, the skills they had acquired which had been instrumental in their careers, and how young scientists could gain these skills.
