We require a colleague to provide core technical support on a 
Wellcome Trust funded project on the evolution of platyhelminths 
(flatworms) and their genes. Research involves sequencing recognized 
(mitochondrial and nuclear) and novel genes for phylogenetic 
purposes, and for determining the molecular evolutionary responses to 
parasitism. The post is available from January 2001, or sooner under 
exceptional circumstances for up to 5 years.

The ideal candidate will have skills in:
a. standard molecular biology techniques; in particular gene 
amplification/sequencing/cloning skills
b. long PCR, cloning large fragments
c. 'mining' GenBank and basic bioinformatics
d. troubleshooting

Please send a covering letter explaining why you are the obvious 
choice for us, CV and details of three referees willing to tell us 
the truth (including email addresses and telephone numbers) to Tim 
Littlewood, Parasitic Worms Division,
Department of Zoology, The Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, London,
SW7 5BD, United Kingdom.

Informal enquiries to T.Littlewood at nhm.ac.uk
Application deadline 10 November 2000.
Electronic submission encouraged.
