Volunteer field research assistant in bowerbird signal function and evolution (Australia)

I am looking for an experienced female field worker to help my female Ph.D. student doing field work on Great Bowerbirds, approximate dates October through to mid December 2014. (Female because the field house offers little privacy). Ideally the volunteer should have extensive experience with birds. The
volunteer should also know how to drive a 4WD vehicle in easy to moderate conditions (we almost never have to shift into 4WD) and not mind living in fieldwork conditions.

Postdoctoral Research Fellows in HIV (South Africa)

We invite applications from ambitious clinical or non-clinical postdoctoral
scientists, to undertake research in a Flagship programme of the Wellcome
Trust & MRC in South Africa

PhD in plant genetics (Sweden)


We are looking for a PhD-student to join us in our research aiming to get a better understanding of the genetic and molecular mechanisms that control plant development. One of the projects at the department focuses on the development of the vascular tissues of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana (see e.g. Carlsbecker et al, Nature, 2010). In another project we compare the development in Arabidopsis with that of the conifer Norway spruce, Picea abies. - See more at: http://www.uu.se/en/join-us/jobs-detail-page/?positionId=40615#sthash.17vknJCk.dpuf
