    PostDoctoral Position in Molecular Evolutionary Genetics

    The position is a two or three year appointment and will begin, 
ideally, sometime between December 1992 and June 1993.  The major 
research activities will be generating and analyzing data on DNA 
sequence variation from within and among species of Drosophila.  
Recent PhD's with interests in the genetics of speciation and 
genealogical models of evolutionary forces are encouraged to 
inquire.  The local intellectual environment at Rutgers is very 
research oriented and strong in both empirical and theoretical 
aspects of evolutionary biology.

Some recent papers:

    phylogenetics of DNA sequence variation at multiple loci within and 
    among species of the Drosophila melanogaster complex. Molecular 
    Biology and Evolution 10:804-822.
