Dear All,

             I have successfully complete my thesis entitled “MOLECULAR IDENTIFICATION OF BUTTERFLIES AND HOST - PLANT ASSOCIATION USING DNA BARCODING WITH PROTEIN - LIGAND INTERACTION.” In this connection, I would like to work on Post Doctoral fellow or any international project in the field of DNA Barcoding in INDIA or abroad

            If anybody could provide  me a chance to get project, that will be a helpful for my feature.

Thanking you all

Job advert from a colleague of mine

I’d be grateful if you would alert relevant people to this 3-year postdoctoral position at the University of Essex (UK): “The key role of DOM in regulating microbial diversity, community structure and organic carbon cycling in arctic lakes”.

 

All the information can be found at http://gs12.globalsuccessor.com/fe/tpl_essex01.asp?newms=jj&id=....

 

But in brief: This project is directed by Prof. Graham Underwood, Dr Alex Dumbrell and Dr Terry McGenity, and is held jointly with Prof. John Anderson, University of Loughborough. It is a field-based investigation into the linkages between DOM quality, quantity and source, and microbial community structure across a sequence of lakes in West Greenland, and is addressing key questions concerning microbial biogeography, the structuring of communities, and potential shifts in community activity under scenarios of environmental change.

Thank you for your post sir

I completed my Doctoral degree in DNA barcoding sir 

currently i am working as project assistant in DNA barcoding of fresh water prawn species and i have experience in this field past 2 years only because my Ph.D., work is about insect DNA barcoding.

if provide me the chance in this project i will discharge my duty with fullest sanctification sir

Thanking you sir
