Postdoctoral Position

~~An Evolutionary View of Physiological Ecology of Desert Green
Algae~~ Funds are available for a NASA-funded two-year postdoctoral
position in the labs of=A0 Dr. Louise Lewis and Dr. Zoe Cardon at
University of Connecticut, starting summer or fall 2003.=A0 We are
seeking a postdoctoral associate to investigate photoprotection
mechanisms and desiccation tolerance in unicellular green algae
isolated from desert crusts of western North America.=A0 These algae
belong to multiple, evolutionarily independent lineages of green algae
that have made the transition from aquatic habitats to desert
microbiotic crusts.=A0 Prior experience with chlorophyll fluorescence
analysis (in algae or higher plants) is preferred; other experience
with stress tolerance in algae would be welcomed, as would 
experience
in phylogenetic analysis, sequencing, and other molecular 
approaches.=A0
Some specific experiments are already envisioned, but there is ample
room for the postdoctoral associate to develop her or his own
independent project(s) using green algal isolates.=A0 To apply, submit a
CV, statement of research interests and accomplishments (including
reprints), and names of three referees willing to provide
recommendations to:=A0 Dr. Zoe Cardon, Dept. of Ecology and 
Evolutionary
Biology, 75 N. Eagleville Road U-43, University of Connecticut,
