!   Two PhD student positions                                      !
!   at the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany                  !

Molecular biological techniques will be used to work on certain problems
within the following topics:

*  biodiversity of cyanobacteria involved in lichen symbiosis
*  lateral transfer of group I introns among green algae, cyanobacteria
   and ascomycetes in lichen partnerships
*  correlations in the evolution of green algae and ascomycetes that are
   involved in lichen partnerships

The two positions are for THREE YEARS and are fully funded within a "DFG"
(German Science Foundation) project entitled "Evolution and functional
aspects in lichen partnerships: molecular studies on green algae,
cyanobacteria and mycobionts".  The salary is according to the German "BAT
2a" (half time).  The projects include the possibility for a several
months research visit at the University of Iowa, Iowa City (USA).
Experience with either molecular techniques (PCR, sequencing, blotting) or
in the field of organismal-focused research on biodiversity, evolution and
systematics is desirable, but not a prerequisite.
