I am looking for individuals interested in applying for a
Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in Molecular Evolution sponsored by
the NSF and Sloan Foundation.
I am funded for the next three years to study the high level phylogeny of nematodes and other
lower metazoans using 18S rRNA sequence information. My funding does
not include a post-doctoral position, but I am interested in
identifying someone who would work with me in applying for a
NSF/Sloan foundation fellowship to work in my lab. The applicant
must be citizens or permanent residents of the US, and have earned
the doctoral degree no earlier than 4 years before the application or
later than June 30 after the application. The application deadline
is November 1, 1995.
My laboratory has been working on Aschelminth phylogeny for the
past three years using the 18S rRNA gene. We currently have two
papers in press, and several other manuscripts working their way through
various stages of review.
Ideally, the applicant should be someone who's doctoral training is in
morphological studies of nematodes or other lower metazoans but who
wants to learn molecular techniques. We could work together to
produce a very convincing application. I believe the funding would
start next summer or fall.
Anyone interested should contact me by email directly.
