disease and (2) conservation and adaptation to vernal pools in
invertebrates and plants. We are looking for a researcher with keen
interest in conservation genetics and with experience in relevant
wetlab protocols and strengths in bioinformatics. The postdoc
also will liaise with other conservation genetics network members
( and assist in
project workshops and the educational mission of the program. Interested
researchers should have a recent PhD and contact
