      RESEARCH ASSISTANT IN DEEP-SEA BIODIVERSITY

      The British Antarctic Survey (BAS), part of the Natural Environment Research
      Council, aims to undertake a world-class programme of scientific research, and
      to sustain for the UK an active and influential regional presence and a
      leadership role in Antarctic affairs.
      At present we know very little about patterns of species diversity and species
      range in the deep ocean. BAS, in collaboration with the Natural History Museum,
      the University of Hawaii and the International Seabed Authority are taking part
      in an international project partly funded by the KAPLAN fund to investigate
      patterns of species diversity in benthic invertebrates in the deep equatorial
      Pacific Ocean. As part of this project, a 12 month post is available to work on
      species diversity, species range and gene-flow in invertebrates (nematodes and
      polychaetes) from the Klarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone.

      Requirements: basic molecular biology techniques including DNA extraction, PCR,
      DNA sequencing experience; background in marine biology and experience in
      phylogenetics analysis will be advantageous. This post will particularly suit
      a newly graduated Ph.D. level scientist looking for additional experience in
      biodiversity, molecular phylogenetics and marine biology. Salary: £20,000 to
      £23,350. On-line application forms and further information are available on
      our website at: www.antarctica.ac.uk. Closing date 7/11/03.
