PhD fellowship in zoological systematics

REF NR B311 3755/05 – Marine Ecology

Deadline: 1st of March 2006

The research school of the Swedish Taxonomy Initiative invites  
applications for a PhD fellowship in the field of zoological  
systematics. We advertise for a biologist with a B.Sc./M.Sc. or  
equivalent degree and interests to undertake intense research  
training. The fellow will be based at Tjärnö Marine Biological  
Laboratory, Department of Marine Ecology, Göteborg University,  
Sweden. The fellowship is financed by the Swedish Taxonomy Initiative  
and is a part of the recently launched research school in systematics.

The fellowship is expected to start during spring 2006. Teaching  
assignments may fill up to 20% of the fellows’ time and will hence  
extend the fellowship from 4 to 5 years.

Taxonomy and Phylogeny of scale-worms (Aphroditiformia, Polychaeta,  

The research assignment will involve a systematic and taxonomic  
investigation of scale-worms including both field- and laboratory  
work. The fellow is expected to acquire a solid expertise of the  
group as well as in methods of modern systematics. Molecular  
biological techniques will be combined with morphological studies  
including various microscopical techniques. Previous knowledge in  
systematic theory, experience with molecular biological and/or  
microscopical techniques, as well as methods of phylogenetic analysis  
i an advantage. The fellow will be based at Tjärnö Marine Biological  
Laboratory. However, a substantial part of the research will take  
place in the field and therefore we expect the student to be able to  
work for some periods in other places.

The fellow will be supervised by F. Pleijel (Tjärnö Marine  
Biological Laboratory, Strömstad) and A. Nygren (Department of  
Zoology, Göteborg).
