Dear colleagues,

we have been recently awarded a grant to sequence the genome of a Symbiodinium species.

The group consists of Chris Voolstra, Tim Ravasi, and Vladimir Bajic at KAUST and Gos Micklem at University of Cambridge.

Briefly, we plan to employ an Illumina shotgun and mate pair sequencing approach. We plan to establish an email list that will provide updates on the status of the process.

Please email christian.voolstra at kaust.edu.sa should you wish to be on the email list, to participate in this project, or other queries related to the project.

The lab of Chris Voolstra and Gos Micklem both have a 2-year postdoctoral position to offer related to this project. Postdoc position for the Micklem lab will be announced in due course. Postdoc candidate for the Voolstra lab preferably has experience in evolutionary genomics and Symbiodinium physiology, ecology, and culturing methods as well as molecular methodologies.

To apply for postdoc in Voolstra lab: Please send cover letter summarizing your qualifications and interests, a curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information for 2-3 references to christian.voolstra at kaust.edu.sa . Projected start date: autumn 2010.
