PhD position in protistology

A PhD position is available at the Laboratory of Soil Biology, Institute
of Biology, University of Neuchātel, starting in September 2012 (or
before, earliest possible date: June 1st).

The successful candidate should have a diploma or M.Sc degree in
biology. We are looking for a highly motivated student with a strong
background in natural history and classical protistology (i.e. cultures,
microscopy) and interest for molecular methods.

The position involves teaching basic protistology and soil biology
(protistology part) at the undergraduate and graduate levels. This is an
institutionally funded teaching assistant position and it is not linked
to a specific research project. Good communication skills in French and
English constitute an advantage (teaching is in French and the student
will be expected to master this language sufficiently well to teach by
the 2nd year).

Interested candidates are requested to send by e-mail to their cv, motivation letter, list of 2-3
reference persons, a description of own research experience and visions
(2 pages) and a short personal research proposal (2 pages) on a topic
they would be interested in developing, within the general topics protist
diversity, ecology and evolution. Evaluation of applications will start
on April 25th.

Potential applicants are encouraged to visit the lab website to learn about on-going
projects and research interests of the lab and to contact Enrique Lara and Edward Mitchell for further information.
