Dear fellow annelida subscribers,

The benthic monitoring program here at the Environmental Protection 
Commission of Hillsborough County (Tampa, Florida U.S.A.) has a 
temporary position open for a polychaete taxonomist. We are looking for 
someone with some experience working with estuarine polychaetes to 
help us catch up on our current backlog of samples.  The position is 
currently funded through Sept. 2001, with the potential of being extended 
for an additional 4-6 months. The pay rate would be $15/hour for 39 
hours/week. Further details are below. Unfortunately, since this is a temp. 
position there are no benefits being offered and it is unlikely that  this 
position will be upgraded to a permanent status in the near future. 
Interested candidates can contact me at the phone number or email 
address below or direct their inquires to Steve Grabe, Environmental 
Supervisor at (813) 272-5955 x1201 or grabe at epcjanus.epchc.org. 
Thank you  

Sincerely,
David J. Karlen
