We are searching for a post-doctoral researcher with informatics skills to participate in an NSF-funded Research Coordination Network, "Deep Time." The goals of this RCN are to develop methods for integrating fossils into phylogenetic trees of extant taxa, with an emphasis on angiosperms. Duties of the post-doctoral associate will include development and maintenance of a web site for the project, development and maintenance of a "Virtual Fossil Collection," participation in RCN research and activities, and assisting with training activities of the RCN. Additional research on a topic of mutual interest to the post-doc and PIs is expected. A background in angiosperm phylogenetics and/or paleobotany is desired. The position is available 1 March 2003; funding is available for up to three years. The position will be housed in the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida. Interested individuals should send a letter of application, CV, and names and e-mail addresses of three references. Apply via e-mail to Doug Soltis (dsoltis@botany.ufl.edu) and Pam Soltis (psoltis@flmnh.ufl.edu). Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
