Taxonomist Position at NCBI/GenBank

The Taxonomy Project at the National Center for Biotechnology
Information (NCBI) in the National Library of Medicine (NLM)
is looking for a postdoctoral scientist with a minimum of 3
years of experience in metazoan systematics. The NCBI/GenBank
taxonomy group attempts to follow phylogenetic principles
wherever possible and it would be preferable if the candidate
were familiar with this approach. The successful candidate
will be required to devote 50% of her/his time to the work
associated with maintaining the taxonomy database. This
includes look-ups in the literature for taxonomic schemes,
keeping contact with our outside taxonomy advisors, checking
for the validity of names, and adding new organisms to the
existing taxonomy database. The other 50% of the time will be
available for independent research.

The initial salary will be between US$ 35,000-50,000 and will
depend on the successful applicants experience. The initial
appointment will be a commitment for two years and could be
extended. Starting dates are negotiable but appointments will
be made as soon as possible.

Applications can be sent via mail, e-mail or faxed to the
address below.
