Preliminary program and registration for Systematikdagarna 2019!

The preliminary program for Systematikdagarna 18-19 November in Gothenburg is now published. If you have not already registered: 25 October is the last day of early bird registration (after that date, the fee increases with 200 SEK, and you will also not be able to submit applications for oral presentations after 25 October).

For both those who will come to Systematikdagarna, and for those who will not attend the conference, this is also a very good time to pay the membership fee for Svenska Systematikföreningen 2019/2020.

Dags att betala medlemsavgiften!

Nu är det hög tid att betala medlemsavgiften för 2019/2020, ett ypperligt tillfälle att även anmäla sig till Systematikdagarna.

Om du inte har betalat din medlemsavgift så gallras du ur medlemsregistret efter 2 år, och missar således utskick och annan information.

För att båda anmäla dig och betala medlemsavgiften, så besöker du sidan för registrering till Systematikdagarna. Läs mer här:

Post-doc position in fungal systematics at Swedish Museum of Natural History

Post-doc position in fungal systematics at Swedish Museum of Natural History

A one-year postdoctoral position is available in the Botany Department at the Swedish Museum of Natural History. The position could possibly be extended for 2 years. The project, which is led by Dr. Karen Hansen, is funded by the Swedish Taxonomy Initiative at the Swedish Species Information Centre.

A new generic classification for the Pezizaceae (Pezizales, Pezizomycetes)

In this project we study the family Pezizaceae, with a focus on the large polyphyletic genus Peziza. These fungi are highly diverse in morphology and ecology, including saprobic and ectomycorrhizal species. Our previous studies have clarified relationships within Pezizaceae, but crucial nodes in the phylogeny remain poorly supported and clades are still insufficiently sampled, which has hampered the construction of a natural generic classification. Peziza has never been monographed and species limits are highly problematic. Identification keys are inadequate and often lead to erroneous determinations. These fungi are poorly understood worldwide. The central goal of the project is to produce a comprehensive multi-gene phylogeny of Pezizaceae by expanding taxon sampling and molecular data, to serve as a solid base for a new classification. Using the phylogenetic hypothesis, and morphological and ecological/biological features, we will diagnose and described monophyletic genera, applying existing or new names. Species delimitation will be addressed in certain problematic lineages. The project will be based on existing material, and additional material from field trips to be conducted in Sweden and in species rich areas elsewhere in Europe.

Qualifications

Applicants have a PhD in fungal systematics/phylogenetics, preferable with experience in various phylogenetics and species delimitation methods, taxonomy and nomenclature, including description and photographing fungi. A documented publication record, as well as fluent English speaking and writing skills, are expected. Good knowledge in molecular lab work and light microscopy techniques are required. Experience in conducting fieldwork is also an advantage.

The starting date is flexible, but the postdoctoral should preferable be in place by August/September 2019, although an earlier start date is possible. The appointment is for 1 year to be extended to 3 years.

Location: Stockholm (Sweden)

For more information, please contact Dr. Karen Hansen, Department of Botany (Karen.hansen@nrm.se). Union representatives are Mia Ehn (Saco-S) and Anna Sandberg (ST). All can be reached at phone +46 8-519 540 00.

Your application should include a cover letter outlining relevant background, motivation, and experience in the areas outlined above. Your curriculum vitae should include a list of publications, and contact information for two references.

The complete application (in Swedish or English) must be submitted to rekrytering@nrm.se or to the Swedish Museum of Natural History, Box 50007, SE-104 05 Stockholm, Sweden no later than April 15, 2019. Mark your application with dnr 2.3.1-104-2019.

Associate Professor in Systematic Mycology – Natural History Museum, UiO

The Natural History Museum, University of Oslo, is recruiting an Associate Professor in Systematic Mycology. This is an attractive position with 50% research time, 50% curation of the mycology collections, as well as possibilities for teaching, and of course it comes with great colleagues! Feel free to share this position among colleagues, or apply yourself! Application deadline 19 May 2019.

The Natural History Museum (NHM) seeks a dynamic researcher for an associate professorship in systematic mycology. The successful candidate should have a research profile in integrative systematics of fungi, which preferably addresses questions of both deep phylogeny and species delimitation and intraspecific diversity.  He/she should also master up-to-date molecular and bioinformatic methods in systematic biology. It is expected that the applicant will develop an independent research program that will have synergistic effects within the research group “Integrative Systematics of Plants and Fungi (ISOP) as well as with other research groups at NHM. The successful candidate will be expected to attract extramural research funding and should document ability and potential to be successful in this respect.

NHM has an array of research facilities, including advanced microscopes and a DNA laboratory where high throughput sequencing can be performed. The museum also collaborates with Department of Biological Sciences on several research facilities.

Candidates who combine fundamental research questions with powerful molecular and computational approaches within a collection-based context, will therefore be preferred.

NHM has a collaborative agreement with the Department of Biological Sciences about teaching and supervision of students at the bachelor and master level, and with the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences in the education of doctoral candidates. NHM also hosts an international research school in biosystematics (ForBio). The successful candidate will be expected to teach students at all academic levels, including supervision of PhD students and postdocs. Up to 50% of the working time will be devoted to curating collections (main activity), teaching and supervision of students, outreach and administrative tasks at NHM. Lectures and tuition are given in Norwegian and English. Foreign language speakers are expected to be able to teach in a Scandinavian language within two years after being hired.
