A postdoctoral research position is available to study the molecular
population genetics of maize and its wild ancestors. The research is
designed to better understand patterns of genetic variation between the
wild taxa and the domesticate, with the hope of better understanding the
process of domestication. Other research in the lab includes study of
molecular evolutionary rates and processes in an array of organisms. The
successful applicant must have a strong background in population
genetics and/or molecular evolution, with experience in molecular
methods (e.g., PCR, cloning, DNA-sequencing). Programming ability is
desirable. The successful applicant will begin at either level I or II,
commensurate with experience. Postdoc I begins at an annual salary of
$28,536 and includes medical benefits. The initial appointment is for
one year, with additional funding possible. Applicants should submit a
curriculum vitae, statement of research interests and the name, address
and phone number of two references to: Dr. Brandon S. Gaut Department of
Eco. Evo. Bio. 321 Steinhaus Hall University of California, Irvine
Irvine, CA 92697-2525. Applicant materials or queries can also be sent
to: bgaut at uci.edu. Applications will be first reviewed on August 17,
1998 and will be reviewed thereafter until the position is filled.
