Postdoctoral Position in Fungal Systematics

A 2 year postdoctoral position is available in Kathie Hodge's lab at
Cornell University for NRI-supported research on fungal taxonomy and

The project focuses on the systematics of the insect pathogenic genus
Hypocrella and its anamorph, Aschersonia (Ascomycota:
Clavicipitales). Work includes the evaluation of taxonomic concepts,
resolution of nomenclatural issues, and construction of web-based,
illustrated keys.  Sequence-based molecular systematics approaches
will be used to refine species concepts and examine evolutionary
relationships. Applicants must have completed a PhD in a related
area, and preferably have experience in traditional and molecular
systematics of ascomycetes.  Travel to several neotropical collecting
sites is expected. Cornell boasts a large number of researchers and
resources on fungal insect pathogens and systematics. Start date is
early 2003, to be negotiated.  Review of applications will begin
December 1, 2002.
