December 2, 2020

After an exhaustive search, the Department is happy to share that Dr. Megan McCaghey will assume the role of Assistant Professor for Fungal Biology at the start of fall semester 2021.  Megan, currently a postdoc at UC-Davis, is an expert in fungal biology in the agricultural setting and will pursue research and teaching.  She emerged from a robust pool of excellent candidates in the department’s first fully online faculty interview process.  Plant Pathology looks forward to welcoming Megan and is grateful for AGREETT funding from the state of Minnesota.  AGREETT supports agricultural research to meet the needs of Minnesota farmers.
