POST-DOCTORAL POSITIONS in molecular evolution, bioinformatics, 
evolutionary genetics

Two post-doctoral positions in computational studies of evolution 
are available at CARB*.  Ongoing and planned research relates to: 
i) the evolutionary history of introns and intron-containing genes 
in eukaryotes; ii) development of software tools and database 
systems tailored for molecular evolution research; and iii) 
theoretical and empirical studies of mutational biases as a cause 
of directional evolution.  For background and further information, 
please check the pages at http://is.dal.ca/~arlin/CARB and 
refer any questions to me (arlin at carb.nist.gov).

Applicants should have skill in computer programming or mathematical
modelling, along with research experience with computational
approaches to problems in evolution or molecular biology.  Yearly 
salary will be 28-35K. There is no citizenship requirement.  The 
positions may begin any time in 1999.  To apply, send a c.v., a 
2-page description of relevant research experience & interests, 
and contact information for 2 references to an appropriate address 
below.  Electronic applications are acceptable.  Review of applications 
will begin 13 November, and continue until the positions are filled.
