We are currently looking for a postdoctorate candidate to get involved in
our research contribution to the Canadian Barcode of Life Network (
that has recently launched efforts to assemble a DNA barcode library for
all Canadian eukaryotes. Involving more than 50 researchers,
represents the world's first national barcode network.

The candidate will be responsible for collecting (through both field
sampling and collaborations) and DNA barcoding representative specimens of
all Canadian freshwater species. Depending on the candidate's interest and
expertise, the project may potentially extend to several ramifications,
including the coverage of all North American freshwater species, the
comparative phylogeography of multiple taxa, the comparison of evolutionary
rates among genes and species, etc.

Candidates for this position must possess a Ph.D. in the biological
sciences.  We are primarily interested in finding a strong candidate with
experience in fish biology, particularly involvement in faunal surveys
and/or taxonomy, as well as experience in molecular systematics. Additional
skills and expertise in molecular evolution and bioinformatics would also
be advantageous assets.

The position is available now and will be offered for one year with a
possibility of extending to two more years, depending on availability of
