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 c
urrent 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 availab
le for 3 years.  Salary: $A35,974 - $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 nece
ssary.  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: $A35,974 - $40,088 depending on experience and degree of excellence.
