We have several post-doctoral positions available in the general area of
aquatic chemical ecology.  These range from more chemical to more
ecological, to combinations of both.  Please forward this on to those you
know that might be interested.  We will also be searching for about 8
additional faculty positions, and have just received a NSF IGERT grant to
train graduate students in aquatic chemical ecology, so mention Ga tech to
interested students as well.  A description of the post-doc positions is
pasted below, information on available faculty positions and the new
chemical ecology graduate program can be found at www.biology.gatech.edu

thanks for passing this on to interested applicants,

cheers,

Georgia Tech's Schools of Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Civil
and Environmental Engineering are searching for as many as
6 Post-Doctoral Fellows to join an interdisciplinary group in
Aquatic Chemical Signaling and Ecology.

Georgia Tech's new program in Aquatic Chemical Signaling invites recent
Ph.D.s to apply for post-doctoral positions working with faculty and
graduate students in a collaborative, interdisciplinary, and well-funded
research effort combining chemistry, ecology, fluid dynamics, and sensory
biology and physiology.  We are especially interested in candidates who
bridge disciplinary borders between chemistry, biology and physics, or in
highly trained scientists from a single discipline who now want to broaden
their approach to include interdisciplinary questions.  Positions are
available on the main campus in Atlanta and at Georgia Tech's new marine
facility at Skidaway Island, Ga. Also see www.biology.gatech.edu.

1) Two NSF IGERT Post-doctoral Fellows  These are multidisciplinary
positions spanning chemistry, ecology, fluid dynamics, and sensory biology
and physiology.  We seek applicants to conduct research and help train
IGERT graduate students at the juncture of two, or more, of the above
disciplines.  This program is devoted to training graduate students and
post-docs in investigations of how chemical signals are produced,
transported, received, and processed in aquatic systems, as well as the
role of chemical signaling in affecting population and community
structure.  Selected candidates may have considerable flexibility in
choices of processes (defense, mate selection, prey sensing) and systems
(coral reefs, plankton, microbes) to investigate.  One position will be on
campus at Georgia Tech, the other at Skidaway Island.  For questions
contact Dr. Mark Hay at mark.hay at biology.gatech.edu or any of the IGERT
faculty listed at http://www.biology.gatech.edu/igert.htm.

2) Dreyfus Foundation Environmental Chemistry Post-doc  Candidates should
have a Ph.D. in organic, biological, or analytical chemistry, and be
interested in applying their skills to ecological and environmental
questions. The postdoc can choose among a broad range of projects focused
on aquatic chemical signaling in systems such as coral reefs, rivers,
lakes, or the open ocean plankton, exploring the role of chemistry in
defending organisms from natural enemies (e.g. predators, competitors,
parasites), in sexual attraction and mate tracking, in locating food, etc.
Previous experience in ecology or environmental research is not required;
instead, this opportunity is intended to enable a trained chemist to
contribute to a new research area.  Field and laboratory resources and
training in ecological techniques at our Atlanta campus and at our marine
lab on Skidaway Island, GA, are available. For questions, contact Dr. Julia
Kubanek at julia.kubanek at biology.gatech.edu.

3) Phytoplankton Chemical Ecology  We seek candidates with expertise in the
natural products chemistry of phytoplankton, phytoplankton ecology,
culturing techniques, and/or phytoplankton-grazer interactions to work with
a NSF Biocomplexity funded multidisciplinary group investigating the direct
and cascading effects of chemical signaling in affecting interactions
between Phaeocystis and its natural enemies.  This position will be located
at Georgia Tech's new marine facility at Skidaway Island, Ga.  For
questions, contact Dr. Mark Hay at mark.hay at biology.gatech.edu.

4) Freshwater Chemical Ecology and Plant-Herbivore Interactions  We seek
candidates with expertise in the ecology of aquatic macrophytes or
invertebrates, in macrophyte-herbivore interactions, and/or chemical
defenses of aquatic macrophytes.  Experience with aquatic systems in the
southeastern United States is desirable.  The position will be located on
campus at Georgia Tech.  For questions, contact Dr. Mark Hay at
mark.hay at biology.gatech.edu.

5) Soft-Substrate Marine Ecology  We seek candidates with experience in
experimental studies of factors affecting the population and community
structure of marine soft-substrate communities.  An interest in chemical
signaling will be advantageous. This position will be located at Georgia
Tech's new marine facility at Skidaway Island, Ga.  For questions, contact
Dr. Mark Hay at mark.hay at biology.gatech.edu.


Salaries range from $32,000-36,000/yr with benefits.  Applicants should
send a resume, up to 3 reprints, a statement of research interests, and
have 3 letters of references sent to: Aquatic Post-doc Search, School of
Biology, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA 30332-0230.
Applications will be considered beginning October 15, 2001.  Georgia
Institute of Technology is a unit of the University System of Georgia and
an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
