A two-year, NSF-funded POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER
opportunity is available at the Bigelow Laboratory for
Ocean Sciences, to conduct research on the systematic
biology and evolution of certain groups of green algae and
protozoa.  The goals are to produce species-level
monographic treatments of these organisms,
and to understand patterns of gene sequence evolution in
the context of organismal phylogeny.  The anticipated tasks
for the postdoctoral researcher are to amplify and sequence
selected genes from targeted organisms, conduct phylogenetic
analyses on these sequences, and integrate these analyses
with those from other classes of data.

Candidates with an earned doctorate in the biological sciences
should be demonstrably proficient in PCR-based DNA sequencing
methods, and in the principles and techniques of phylogenetic
analysis.  Prior experience in protistan systematic biology is
highly desirable, as is experience with Internet-based data
dissemination.   Curriculum vitae, the names of three references, and
a brief cover letter with a one-paragraph statement of the candidate's
professional experiences and objectives, should be sent to:
