Molecular biological techniques will be used to work on certain problems
within the following topics:
*  biodiversity of cyanobacteria involved in lichen symbiosis
*  lateral transfer of group I introns among green algae, cyanobacteria
   and ascomycetes in lichen partnerships
*  correlations in the evolution of green algae and ascomycetes that are
   involved in lichen partnerships
The two positions are for THREE YEARS and are fully funded within a
"DFG" (German Science Foundation) project entitled "Evolution and
functional aspects in lichen partnerships: molecular studies on green
algae, cyanobacteria and mycobionts".  The salary is according to the
German "BAT 2a" (half time).  The projects include the possibility for a
several months research visit at the University of Iowa, Iowa City
(USA).  Experience with either molecular techniques (PCR, sequencing,
