POS II

MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY OF NEWFOUNDLAND, SIR WILFRED GRENFELL COLLEGE
invites applications for a tenure-track and/or a 2-year contractual
position in biology.  Both are ecologist positions.  Area of
expertise within the general field of ecology is open, but preference
may be given to applicants with research and teaching experience in
freshwater biology or plant ecology.  Teaching duties will include
introductory biology and courses for upper-year students.

Sir Wilfred Grenfell College is the west coast campus of Memorial
University, located in Corner Brook, Newfoundland.  It is a small
institution currently offering programmes leading to undergraduate
degrees in Fine Arts (Visual Arts and Theatre), Arts (English,
Psychology and Cognitive Studies), and Science (Environmental Science),
or admission to the University's professional faculties.  Plans to
develop additional areas of multi- and interdisciplinary study are
underway.

The appointments will be made at a junior level, with a PhD in hand or
near completion being the minimum credentials required for the position.
Salary will reflect qualifications and experience in accordance with the
collective agreement governing faculty and the Memorial University of
Newfoundland.  The closing date is May 15, 1996 or when the position is
filled.  Both positions are subject to final budgetary approval.

A letter of application, along with a Curriculum vitae, teaching dossier,
and the names of three referees, should be submitted to:

POS III

        I'm looking for a VERY GOOD undergraduate student to work on an NSF
funded project involving plant-herbivore interactions and chemical ecology
in freshwater systems.  Because the position is funded by an REU supplement
to my grant, the student must be an undergraduate.  Recent graduates cannot
be supported.  The project will involve field work, lab feeding assays, and
possibly some modest work on macrophyte chemistry.
        The student needs to be an innovative self-starter.  The more
experience a student has with ecology, field work, chemistry, experimental
design, etc. the better, but I am more interested in excellence and clear
scientific potential than I am in getting a previously experienced
investigator.  The student will work with me, my students, post-doc, etc.
on some directed projects, but will also be encouraged to take primary
responsibility for some aspects of the project and to pursue this in a
semi-independent manner.
        Pay will be $1,200 per month for 3 months and the student will need
to be in residence at UNC's marine lab in Morehead City, NC for this
period.  Please encourage your better students that you think could profit
from this experience to apply.  They should send me a letter outlining
their reasons for applying, a CV, transcripts, and list the names, phone
#s, and email addresses of two people that can provide recommendations.
Students that have questions prior to applying can contact me using the
information printed below.  If I am not in, they could also contact Ms.
Robin Bolser at 919-726-6841.
        Thanks for helping find a good student for this position.

cheers,
