PostDoctoral Position in Molecular Evolutionary Genetics
The position is a two or three year appointment and will begin,
ideally, sometime between December 1992 and June 1993. The major
research activities will be generating and analyzing data on DNA
sequence variation from within and among species of Drosophila.
Recent PhD's with interests in the genetics of speciation and
genealogical models of evolutionary forces are encouraged to
inquire. The local intellectual environment at Rutgers is very
research oriented and strong in both empirical and theoretical
aspects of evolutionary biology.
