Post-doctoral Fellowships (2) at Victoria University of Wellington, New
Victoria University is a leading New Zealand University situated in Wellington,
the capital city. We seek two excellent post-doctoral fellows to join our young
and vigorous School of Biological Sciences (www.sbs.science.vuw.ac.nz/) in the
fields of plant evolution and molecular ecology.
1. Plant Molecular Ecology. The research will involve application of molecular
techniques to the study of rapid species radiations that have taken place in New
Zealand from immigrant ancestors in the last few million years. The roles of
immigrant selection, adaptive radiation, diploid hybrid speciation, allopatry,
and diverse habitats will be examined using molecular phylogenetic techniques.
The fellow will work with Professor Phil Garnock-Jones in collaboration with
Associate Professor Peter Lockhart (Allan Wilson Centre for Research Excellence,
Massey University, Palmerston North) and botanists at the Museum of New Zealand
Te Papa Tongarewa. Applicants must have a PhD in systematic or evolutionary
biology and should have a strong background in plant molecular systematics.
2. Evolution of separate and combined sexes in mosses. The fellow will work
with Professor Phil Garnock-Jones and Dr Linley Jesson on a Marsden Funded
project that will use mosses as a novel system to extend and test the generality
of models that examine the evolution of separate and combined sexes. Applicants
must have a PhD in plant ecology, systematics, or evolutionary biology and
should have a strong background in one or more of molecular systematics,
experimental and theoretical plant reproductive biology, evolutionary modeling,
and bryophyte ecology and evolution.
