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 
in phylogenetic analysis, sequencing, and other molecular 
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
