PhD studentship in systematic botany at Stockholm University

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship (forskarutbildning) at the 
Department of Botany, Stockholm University, Sweden. The successful 
candidate will be working on molecular phylogenetics and floral evolution 
among first branching lineages of the Acanthaceae (Lamiales). The molecular 
part of the project is part of an international collaboration on the 
phylogeny of Acanthaceae. The studentship offers the possibility for 
training and research in molecular phylogenetics and 
morphological/anatomical methods. The project also entails field work in 
the tropics/subtropics.

Requirements include a M.Sc. (Fil. Mag.) or an equivalent degree in plant 
biology, preferably in systematics; experience in either molecular (DNA 
sequencing) or morphological (microtome, SEM) techniques; potential/ability 
to write and publish in English; and a strong interest in phylogenetic 
methodology and evolutionary biology.

Funding for the two first years will be covered by a faculty studentship 
(utbildningsbidrag, 13’650 SEK/month) from Stockholm University. Upon 
satisfactory progress, the PhD-student can apply for a PhD-employment 
limited to three years, starting with a salary of 17’900 SEK per month. The 
successful candidate is expected to work as a teaching assistant for up to 
20% of the total PhD duration.

Starting date is September 1, 2004, but is negotiable. Application will 
close on June 30, 2004. Candidates should send their Curriculum vitae, two 
letters of recommendation, attested copies of degrees and transcripts of 
academic records, a copy of their M.Sc. thesis or equivalent, and a short 
account (not more than two pages) on their research interest to the 
following address:
