    Our University has a position for a botanist which I would like to
advertise widely.  Our interest is in a systematist who uses molecular
techniques, but that interest can be taken very loosely.  We will consider
most kinds of systematic botanists.  Our applicant pool is very small at
the moment so we encourage applications from a wide variety of botanists.
If your interest is not botany, I would like to encourage you to pass our
ad along to any botanists who are searching for a position.
