**********************************************
POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT: Developing Expertise in the Taxonomy
and Systematics of the Echiura and the Sipuncula

Applications due May 15th, 1997

A two-year award beginning September 1st, 1997 in the Department of
Invertebrate Zoology, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University.

        The primary goal of this award is to train a postdoctoral fellow in
the taxonomy and systematics of two groups of benthic marine invertebrates,
the Echiura and the Sipuncula.  Under the faculty sponsorship of Dr.
Damhnait McHugh, and in collaboration with Dr. Edward Cutler, the
fellowship recipient will undertake research that will contribute to a
better understanding of the evolution of these groups.
        Particular lines of investigation will depend partly on the
interests of the postdoctoral fellow, but will include both morphological
and molecular analyses of phylogenetic relationships of echiurans and
sipunculans.  In addition, a monograph on the Echiura will be produced,
which will document character variation, species diversity, geographic
distribution patterns, etc.; examination of hypotheses of sipunculan
phylogeny and character evolution may also be carried out.


FELLOWSHIP:
A total award of $66,000 will provide a fellowship amount of $25,000 and
$26,000 for Year 1 and Year 2, respectively; a research allowance of $2,000
and $1,000 for Year 1 and Year 2, respectively; fringe benefits of 18.9%
each year; and a travel allowance of $1,000 each year.


QUALIFICATIONS:
Required:
- Have earned a Ph.D. in the Biological Sciences before starting the fellowship.
- Intention to continue with aspects of this work in subsequent years.
- Some previous research experience with marine invertebrates.

Preferred:
- Some previous research experience with either the Sipuncula or the Echiura.
- Knowledge of the basics of zoological nomenclature.
- An understanding of the conceptual and empirical framework of
phylogenetic systematics.


APPLICATIONS:
Inquiries may be addressed to Dr. Edward Cutler ([log in to unmask]) or Dr.
Damhnait McHugh ([log in to unmask]).  For information on the
Department of Invertebrate Zoology, see

Letters of application (including c.v., statement of research interests,
and names of 3 references) should be addressed to:

Dr. Damhnait McHugh
