Thanks for your patience and sorry for the missing file - Here is the  
announcement!

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Systematic & Evolutionary Plant Biology

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden invites applications for the Fletcher
Jones Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Botany. Applications for
this full-time position are solicited from individuals with a primary
interest in, and commitment to, active field-, lab- and/or
collection-oriented research in the systematics, phylogenetics, or
evolution of vascular plants using contemporary techniques. We seek
an individual who will bring an exciting and innovative project that
will complement and extend on-going research activities, and who will
interact extensively with scientists, students, and professional
staff.

The Garden's Research Department is home to staff scientists who are
also faculty members at Claremont Graduate University; 14 graduate
students; and facilities that include laboratories (molecular and
structural, including SEM); an herbarium of more than 1.1 million
plant specimens, almost entirely of vascular plants; an excellent
research library; and extensive plant growth facilities. For
additional information about Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden and its
Research Department, please visit http://www.rsabg.org or communicate
with any of the department's faculty.

Candidates must have their Ph.D. prior to beginning the position.
This is a one year position with possible extension to two years
based on performance.  The position carries a competitive salary
($39,000) and a budget of $5,000 per year for research expenses.

Regular employment at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden is for no
specified period of time; conditions and status of employment (hours,
pay, title, duties, etc.) are subject to change at any time.
Employees, and likewise RSABG, are free to end the employment
relationship at any time, for any reason, with or without notice or
cause, unless otherwise prohibited by law.

To apply, send a letter of interest, a curriculum vitae, and a brief
research proposal (no more than 10 pages all inclusive). The proposal
should clearly indicate how the project both extends the applicant's
dissertation research and fits into his/her long-term plans.  Please
