Topic: Diversity of eukaryotic picoplankton using molecular 
approaches

Postdoctoral Position 1 year (March 2002 - March 2003)

Oceanic Phytoplankton group
Station Biologique de Roscoff
CNRS et Universit=E9 Pierre et Marie Curie
BP 74, 29682 Roscoff, France

This position is funded by the FP5 EU program PICODIV (2001-
2003)
which focuses on the diversity of picoplankton in coastal and 
oceanic
waters following on recent work showing that oceanic picoplankton
diversity is very high with many phyla containing uncultured
representatives (Moon-van der Staay S.Y., De Wachter R., Vaulot D.
2001. Oceanic 18S rDNA sequences from picoplankton reveal new
eukaryotic lineages. Nature 409: 607-610). Emphasis will be on the
acquisition and phylogentic analysis of rDNA gene sequences both from
newly isolated cultures and from environmental clone libraries of
eukaryotic picoplankton from coastal and oceanic waters.

Skills :

- The candidate is expected to have a strong academic background, to
have published in international peer-reviewed journals and to be able
to conduct independent research - Experience with modern taxonomical
approaches inolving rDNA genes on bacteria or unicellular eukaryotes
(cloning and sequencing of environmental samples, phylogenetical
analysis, DGGE, rRNA probes) will be critical - Familiarity in algal
taxonomy will be highly desirable - Working knowledge of the French
language will be an essential prerequisite for rapid integration in
our team

Starting date: Spring 2002 as soon as possible
Duration: 12 months with possible extension
