Molecular Phylogeny

I seek a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with experience in phylogenetic
inference to work on projects funded by the Australian Research Council on
the molecular phylogeny of ticks and flukes.  Knowledge of ticks and flukes
is not required but knowledge of current approaches to phylogenetic
inference and expertise in molecular biology, especially PCR, cloning and
nucleotide sequencing, are necessary.  The successful applicant will hold
the PhD degree and will be able to work independently.  Funds are available
for 3 years.  Salary: $35,974 - $40,088 depending on experience and degree
of excellence.



Genome Mapping

I seek a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with substantial experience in
molecular biology to work on the genome of the cattle tick Boophilus
microplus.  Knowledge of ticks is not required but expertise in molecular
biology and an interest in genomes are necessary.  The successful applicant
will hold the PhD degree and will be able to work independently. The main
approaches to be used will be collection of ESTs (Expressed Tag Sites),
Fluorescent In Situ Hybridisation (FISH) and comparative mapping.  Funds
are available for 6-12 months initially.  Salary: $35,974 - $40,088
depending on experience and degree of excellence.
