Plant Taxonomist and Project Leader required in Reading

We seek an accomplished plant taxonomist, skilled in floristics, to work as 
part of a
team on the floras of Europe and the Mediterranean. The post will be in the
Euro+Med PlantBase Secretariat (part of the Centre for Plant Diversity and
Systematics) at the School of Plant Sciences in The University of Reading. The
post is for up to one year, under an E.U. contract, on the post-doctoral
research assistant scale around £22522.

This challenging position has become vacant on the departure of the current 
holder Dr Liz Caddick for Australia. It involves leading the taxonomic 
effort in the Euro+Med PlantBase Secretariat, with others in the team 
assisting with database management and taxonomic editing. The post involves 
work on floristic treatments and checklists for inclusion in the Euro+Med 
on-line database and a certain amount of administration and report writing. 
The holder of the post will have experience as a plant taxonomist, 
knowledge of the European flora, plus project management and communication 
skills. The Co-ordinating Centre at Reading leads ten other European 
Centres in this EU RTD Project, and involves working with an extensive 
network of experts throughout the Euro-Mediterranean region. The post will 
involve travel within the region. Considerable computer literacy is 
required and appropriate language skills will be an advantage.

Further details will be available shortly from Dr Stephen L. Jury,
