I have a postdoc opening in my lab that could be an excellent opportunity for 
members of this list.  The project is extremely cool, and will incorporate 
elements of ecology and systems biology.  The position is open now, and I would 
like to fill it ASAP.

Charles Delwiche

Genomic basis of species diversity and ecosystem functioning
We seek a postdoctoral scholar to collaborate on a project funded by the U.S. 
National Science Foundation to study the evolutionary basis of species 
diversity and ecosystem functioning in freshwater green algae.  The successful 
candidate will take intellectual lead on the genomics portion of laboratory and 
field experiments that will (1) determine how much genetic differentiation is 
required for species to stably coexist, and (2) determine how mechanisms that 
allow for coexistence also impact community-level processes such as primary 
production.  The candidate will also pursue his or her own research interests 
within the broader context of the grant proposal.
The candidate will work in Dr. Charles Delwiche's lab at the University of 
Maryland – College Park, and will collaborate with researchers in the labs of 
Drs. Bradley Cardinale (an ecologist at the University of Michigan) and Todd 
Oakley (a phylogeneticist at UC-Santa Barbara).
The position requires a Ph.D. in the biological sciences, bioinformatics, or a 
related field.  Experience with high-throughput sequencing, sequence analysis, 
algal/plant biodiversity, or RNA biology are desirable.
This is a three-year position, with the initial appointment being for one year 
and renewals contingent on successful progress in research. The starting salary 
will be $ 42,000 with full benefits.
The University of Maryland is located in College Park, a suburb of the 
Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area, and provides a vibrant cultural and 
academic environment with easy access to a vast array of Federal research 
The position is available immediately. To apply formally, send a curriculum 
vitae, the names of 3 references, and a brief statement of how your research 
goals fit with research on algal biodiversity, systematics, and evolutionary 
biology to: aaalg...@gmail.com

There is still only you, listening to the music of the wind and lost in the 
stagnant cries of the miseries lost in the eyes of others laughing at you.  How 
can someone so different be so much the same? - Liu Sola
