Dear Taxacom

We have just advertised for a 3-year grass taxonomy post. This will be part of our new GCRF-funded International Collaboration project between RBG Kew and the University of Antananarivo, Madagascar, to study Malagasy Digitaria grasses, mainly herbarium taxonomy but with some phylogenomics. This is a research assistant post so higher degrees are not required, travel is not expected (but hopefully possible), lab and DNA analysis experience are not essential (but desirable); we need herbarium and microscopy experience.


Potential applicants are encouraged to contact me for details.

Please share
