                TWO POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE

                          IN MOLECULAR ECOLOGY

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions in molecular
ecology, funded under a recently awarded NSERC Collaborative Project
Grant. Highly motivated individuals are required to develop and
apply hypervariable genetic markers for parentage, kinship and
population structure analyses in several vertebrate species,
primarily of birds and reptiles. Experience with cloning, genomic
libraries, sequencing and PCR an asset. Familiarity with the
genetics and statistics of micro- and minisatellite single locus
markers is desirable. Experience with field studies and an
interdisciplinary work environment would be useful. Many
opportunities exist for interaction with both field-oriented
behavioural ecologists and laboratory-oriented molecular biologists
in an active group of molecular ecologists. Group includes: Queen's
University - Peter Boag, Vicki Friesen, Bob Montgomerie, Raleigh
Robertson, Laurene Ratcliffe; McMaster University - H. Lisle Gibbs;
Carleton University - Pat Weatherhead; La Trobe University - Mike
Clarke. Funding is available for two years, with the possibility of
a third year. One person will likely work most of their time at
Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, the other most of their
time at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Send CV and names
of 3 referees by December 15, 1994 to: Dr. Peter T. Boag (QUMEL),
Department of Biology, Queen!s University, Kingston, Ontario K7L
3N6, Canada. Phone: (613) 545-6394. FAX: (613) 545-6617. E-Mail:
