The National Biological Service's Leetown Science Center (located
in the Eastern Panhandle  of  West  Virginia)  has a post-doc (or
equivalent) position available in the Population  Genetics  Group
of  the  Aquatic  Ecology  Laboratory (AEL).  The incumbent would
assist in developing and  screening  microsatellite markers to be
applied to ongoing Genetic Stock Identification and  phylogenetic
studies of Atlantic salmon, Atlantic sturgeon, quahog (Mercenaria
mercenaria), and various freshwater mussel species.

The  incumbent  should  possess  knowledge  of advanced molecular
genetic  techniques  and   have   a   working  knowledge  of  the
fundamental and current  population  genetics  and  phylogenetics
literature.   The  applicant  should  possess  a Ph.D.  or a M.S.
degree with at least two  years  applied research experience in a
molecular biology laboratory.  The position, with benefits,  pays
$26,400.    Benefits  include  full  health  insurance  and  paid
holidays (10), vacation days (10), a personal leave day, and sick
leave.  The targeted start date is October 1, 1996.  The duration
of employment is to be no less than 12 months.

AEL  is  equipped  with  everything  needed  to  clone, sequence,
screen, and statistically analyze microsatellite markers.   AEL's
genetics  component  presently  employs  a  geneticist  and three
technicians.  AEL is  equipped  with  an automated seqeuncing and
fragment analysis  system,  a  PhastSystem  electrophoretic  work
station,  manual  sequencing  units, three thermal cycling blocks
(including one with a temperature grandient), a gel documentation
and analysis system, Pentium-driven  PCs, and Internet access via
a T1 line to DOI-NET.

If you are interested in this  opportunity,  please  contact  Tim
King  immediately.   If  you  know  of  someone else who might be
interest, please forward this message.  Thank you.
