I would like to draw recent and soon-to-graduate PhDs' attention to the 
Rubicon Postdoctoral Programme under the Dutch National Research Funding 
Agency. We would be more than delighted to host an imaginative and 
self-driven post doctorate in our lab under this programme. The 
fellowship is open to all nationalities and awarded based upon research 
excellence. The proposal is relatively short. For more information see: 
http://www.nwo.nl/nwohome.nsf/pages/NWOP_6H2G7R_ENG. The next (and 
possibly last deadline for this program is December 1st, 2011)

Our main focus area is the application of genetic methods to study the 
ecology and evolution of marine mammals. We are currently (in 
collaboration with UC Santa Cruz as well as UC San Francisco) sequencing 
the genome of the humpback whale and the harbor porpoise but we have 
also large collections of samples from many marine mammal species and 
populations, and plenty of data awaiting analysis.

If you are interested please write to Per Palsboll (p.j.palsboll at rug.nl) 
and Martine Berube (m.berube at rug.nl).
