Postdoc: Molecular Phylogenetics

A postdoctoral position is available at North Carolina State  
University (NCSU) for someone with interests in molecular evolution  
and phylogenetics. The selected applicant will be associated with the  
NCSU Insect Museum, working closely with Dr. Andrew R. Deans on an NSF- 
funded project that touches many other aspects of evolutionary  
biology: divergence time estimation to address biogeographic and host/ 
parasite questions, DNA barcoding to test hypotheses of mimicry and  
beta diversity, new informatics to manage/incorporate morphological  
and fossil data, and novel methods for revisionary systematics. This  
position is an opportunity to join a growing lab of enthusiastic and  
approachable biologists with a broad array of expertise.

As a vertex of North Carolina's Research Triangle NCSU benefits from  
close proximity to a large community of evolutionary biologists at  
NCSU (e.g., in the Entomology, Genetics, and Biology departments) and  
our affiliation with the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center  

Required: PhD in Biology or related field. Experience in primer  
design, PCR, molecular data analysis. Excellent written and oral  
communication skills.

Desirable: Experience with insects, informatics, and ontologies,  
penchant for international travel and field work.

Details: The position is available from July 1, 2009 (negotiable) and  
is offered for one year, with the possibility of reappointment for  
another year. Salary is $38,000 per annum.
