Cullman Postdoctoral Research Associate
Botanical Science - Position Application Number: SC-1670
http://www.nybg.org/employment/listing.php?id_employment_listings=1015

The Cullman Postdoctoral Research Associate will conduct systematic
and/or population-genetic research on plants by developing and applying
molecular tools.
 
- Collect and analyze molecular data to reconstruct phylogenetic and
biogeographic relationships and/or to interpret population-level
processes.
- Conduct standard protocols of molecular systematic and genetics, such
as nucleic acid extraction, PCR, cloning, automated DNA sequencing,
genotyping, next-generation sequencing.
- Assist in developing new molecular markers specific to on-going and
new projects.
- Conduct phylogenetic, biogeographic, and/or population-genetic
analyses of the clades of Apiales (incl. Apiaceae, Araliaceae,
Pittosporaceae) and other groups of mutual interest.
- Assist in collections-based research on these plant groups.
- Write and assist in writing publications and grant proposals based on
current research.
- Assist the Director in all functions necessary to ensure successful
outcome of ongoing projects.

Requirements:

- Ph.D. in botany, plant biology, or related field.
- Experience with application of molecular approaches to systematics.
- Experience with the methods of phylogenetic and biogeographic
analysis.
 
Salary commensurate with experience.

- Application of Systematics data to conservation issues focused on the
phylogeny of woody Boraginaceae.
- DNA-sequencing and methods of phylogenetic analysis.
- Analyze data to produce publications based on previous and current
research.
- Assist the Dean in all functions necessary to ensure successful
outcome of ongoing projects.

Requirements:

- Ph.D. in biology, plant biology, or related field.
- Experience with DNA sequencing.
- Experience with methods of phylogenetic analysis.
- Experience with standard methods of molecular systematic including
nucleic acid extraction, PCR, cloning, automated DNA sequencing.
- Experience with DNA-barcoding preferred.
 
Salary commensurate with experience.

Postdoctoral Researcher
Institute of Systematic Botany - Position Application Number: SC-1669
http://www.nybg.org/employment/listing.php?id_employment_listings=1014 

The Postdoctoral Researcher will work with Science curators to analyze
datasets relative to conservation issues:
 
- Conduct GIS analysis of botanical data sets.
- Prepare manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
- Integrate one of the world's strongest programs of systematic research
with ongoing conservation research.
- Implementation in existing programs with new efforts to use specimen
data to inform conservation and international connections of the Science
program. 
- Effectively implement data to identify species at risk of extinction,
patterns of species diversity, and areas of high conservation priority.

Requirements:

- Ph.D. in botany, plant biology, or related field.
- Experience with use and analysis of herbarium data.
- Demonstrated experience with GIS software.
- Demonstrated experience in preparing publications and grant proposals.
 
Salary commensurate with experience.
