Subject: Postdoc phylogenetic analyses

Postdoctoral position for development and application of
sequence analysis tools

A postdoctoral position for a person 
interested in phylogenetic analyses of sequence data is available 
at the University of Bochum, Germany for a period of 5 years. If 
during this time a further qualitfication is obtained (the 
"habilitation", equivalent to junior professor) the job can be 
continued for another 5-6 years.

We encourage applications from molecular systematists, 
mathematicians or related sciences (e.g., computer sciences) with 
a demonstrated record of successful research in the field of theory 
or practice of sequence analysis. Programming experience and a 
good mathematical background are required.

This appointment is part of the department's molecular 
phylogenetics group, a research team focused on the study of 
phylogeny of invertebrates and on analyses of the information 
content of sequences based on new  methods. We 
expect that the assistant will help to develop and test new tools for
sequence analysis and cooperate with the group to study the 
phylogeny of invertebrates. It is also expected that the successful 
candidate participates in teaching at both the undergraduate and 
graduate level.
Teaching may be done in English. 

The successful applicant will be paid according to government 
standard wages (BAT II, approx. 6000.- DM monthly before taxes 
and twice this amount in december.). 

Applications (including CV, list of publications and teaching 
experience, and a brief summary of research plans) and two letters 
of reference should be sent to
