Göteborg University, Department of Zoology:

PhD STUDENTSHIP in Systematics of Clitellata (Annelida)

Applications are invited for a 4-year PhD studentship starting in January 2005 
or sooner if possible. The studentship will be at the subdivision of 
Zoomorphology and Systematics, in the research group of Professor Christer 
Erséus. The successful candidate will work with taxonomy and phylogeny of 
enchytraeid clitellates (a species-rich group of segmented worms) with 
emphasis on marine species. Methods will include microscopy as well as those 
of molecular systematics.

A background in zoomorphology or zoosystematics, preferably with experience of 
work with invertebrates and/or methods of molecular systematics, would be 
appropriate. We are looking for a student full of initiative, good analytical 
ability, and a talent for scientific writing in English.

The position is for four years of full time for the PhD work, two years 
supported by a fellowship followed by two years of employment. A 20% teaching 
assistantship may be added, so that the period of  appointment is prolonged to 
span a total of about five years.

Inquiries should be directed to christer.erseus at zool.gu.se; tel. +46-31-773 

Application should include a verified CV, documents showing educational 
background, and if available, examples of previous project reports or 
publications written by the applicant. Application, marked with Ref. No. B311
