Julie Huber

Julie Huber, an assistant scientist at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory, has been awarded a $40,000 fellowship as part of the L'Oreal USA Fellowships for Women in Science Program. Huber was recognized along with four other young women researchers, at a ceremony last week at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Huber is a researcher in the MBL’s Josephine Bay Paul Center for Comparative Molecular Biology and Evolution, where she studies the metagenomics of microbial communities within the subseafloor. Her work is a part of the International Census of Marine Microbes, a project of the Census of Marine Life, a 10-year international initiative that aims to understand the diversity of ocean life.
