****************************************
Research Assistant (full time)
Molecular Systematics and Phylogeny of Annelids
Start date: September 1, 1998

SUMMARY:
A Research Assistant is sought to participate in an NSF-funded research
project on the evolutionary relationships of a group of marine annelids and
the evolution of their larval developmental modes.  The Research Assistant
will collect nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequence data for phylogenetic
analysis; the results will allow the pattern of change in larval
development throughout the evolutionary history of the group to be
inferred, and will provide the basis for a re-classification of the group.


REQUIRED EXPERIENCE:
B.Sc. or M.Sc. in biology, with previous experience in molecular
techniques, including DNA and RNA isolation, PCR and RT-PCR, automated DNA
sequencing, and cloning.

ADDITIONAL EXPERIENCE PREFERRED:
Familiarity with sequencing software and phylogenetic analysis.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
The Research Assistant will be primarily responsible for completion of RNA
preparations, cDNA synthesis, PCR amplifications, cloning, automated
sequencing, and data management and analysis.  Other duties will include
monitoring lab equipment and supplies, and general lab management.  May
help to train students and visitors in DNA sequencing techniques, and may
oversee their work.  Related duties as required. NOTE:  Ability to lift
heavy objects; work with hazardous materials (e.g., phenol, chloroform,
formaldehyde).

STARTING SALARY:
$24,000
