                ------------------------------------------
The Laboratory of Molecular Systematics at the National Museum of Natural
History, Smithsonian Institution, invites applications for 1- and 2-year
postdoctoral fellowships.  Fellows are expected to conduct research in
close collaboration with one of three LMS senior scientists, whose areas of
research are given below.  Stipends currently are $25,000 per year plus
benefits.  Awards are made on the basis of competitive review of written
research proposals, qualifications and training.  Applications from female
and minority applicants are encouraged. The application deadline is 15
January 1997.  To begin the application process, send curriculum vitae,
names and phone numbers of 3 references and a short statement of research
interests to Dr. Matthew D. Kane, Biological Sciences Program Administrator
at kane at onyx.si.edu or at Laboratory of Molecular Systematics, Smithsonian
Institution MRC 534, Washington D.C. 20560; Telephone: (301) 238-3444.

MICHAEL J. BRAUN, Director, Laboratory of Molecular Systematics; Associate
Curator, Vertebrate Zoology.  Research specialties: genetic analysis of
avian hybridization and speciation, molecular systematics and population
genetics of birds, use of ancient DNA in evolutionary research.

DAVID L. SWOFFORD, Principle Investigator, Laboratory of Molecular
Systematics; Associate Curator, Vertebrate Zoology. Research specialties:
theory and methodology of phylogenetic inference from morphological,
genetic, and molecular data; systematics of fishes using molecular and
morphological characters.

ELIZABETH A. ZIMMER, Principal Investigator, Laboratory of Molecular
Systematics; Curator, Botany. Research specialties: molecular systematics
of flowering plants; structure and differential expression of multigene
families (particularly in interspecific hybrids); development of molecular
markers across a range of species divergence; and molecular basis of
morphological and developmental adaptations.
