I am seeking a postdoc to work on annelid evolution and development using 
genomic approaches. The individual will work on the WormNet project 
(NSF:Biocomplexity initiative) which seeks to reconstruct annelid 
phylogeny and explore the origins of segmentation in annelids. This project 
represents a multi-PI effort includes the following individuals:  

K. M. Halanych, T Dahlgren	(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
M. Martindale, E. Seaver (University of Hawaii)
D. McHugh (Colgate University)
J. Boore, D. Rokhsar (Joint Genome Institute)

Ideally, an individual with a background in genomic techniques and 
evolution of developmental mechanisms is desired. Research will include 
development of annelids as model organisms and will focus on the evolution 
of genes related to segmentation. While knowledge of phylogenetic 
techniques is desirable, it can be learned once in the lab. This research will 
also include some fieldwork.  

Interest individuals should contact Ken Halanych (khalanych at whoi.edu) 
(preferably by Nov 28). They should also apply to the WHOI postdoctoral 
program (http://www.whoi.edu/education/postdoctoral/scholarship.html) by 
January 15, 2002.
