Postdoctoral Research Position at the University of Texas, Austin

A postdoctoral research position is available immediately on an
NSF-sponsored ITR (Information Technology Research) project entitled,
"Reconstructing Complex Evolutionary Histories."  The main focus of the
grant is to develop, test, and validate methods for reconstructing
reticulate evolutionary histories.  Funding for the postdoctoral position
is for a minimum of two years, but could be extended under appropriate
circumstances.  Minimum salary starts at $25,000, but can be higher
depending upon an applicant's skills and experience.  The principle part of
the project for which the postdoctoral researcher will be responsible is
the identification and development of multiple DNA markers that could be
used throughout flowering plants for the reconstruction of reticulate and
bifurcating phylogenies.  The ideal candidate for the position will have
experience with the computational aspects of phylogenetics, including
programming experience, as well as some experience in the lab with DNA
extraction and purification, PCR, and sequencing.  Depending upon the
experience of the candidate there will also be ample opportunities to aid
in the development and testing of tools and algorithms for reconstructing
reticulate phylogenies.  Interested candidates should send a letter of
interest, CV, and the names and contact information for three recommenders
to: Randy Linder, Section of Integrative Biology, University of Texas, 1
University Station, A6700, Austin, TX 78712 or

extensive benefits.  The University of Texas is an equal opportunity employer.
