Postdoctoral Position Available in Evolutionary Morphology of

I am seeking a postdoctoral collaborator to work on a NSF-funded
project focusing on the evolution of locomotion in chelicerate
arthropods using comparative anatomical and electrophysiological
methods.  I am primarily interested in recruiting a person with
expertise in the morphology and/or systematics of living or fossil
arthropods. The successful applicant will be trained in the necessary
techniques.  It is expected that the successful applicant will spend
about 50% of the time on the locomotion project and 50% of the time on
a collaborative project in the postdoc's area of interest.

The base annual salary will be about $26,000 (negotiable) with
premiums for health insurance added to this base amount.
