Global change research opportunities (MS and PhD level), investigating 
physiological response or structure/function disruption to algal and 
fungal dominated ecosystems, are currently available for creative and 
highly motivated individuals. Potential research topics involving 
manipulated Midwestern pond/stream mesocosms, Pacific Northwest marine 
kelp forests, coastal rainforest epiphytes, or Appalachian lithic 
communities are possible.  

Applicants should possess interests in ecophysiology, evolutionary 
ecology, conservation or field biology. Previous experience with lower 
plants, molecular tools or chemical ecology preferred, but not 
required. Full tuition waivers and stipends ($18,000) are available to 
qualified applicants.  

With numerous social, cultural (, and 
sporting venues, as well as pristine natural areas close by 
Cleveland is a hip, entertaining and affordable place to live. For 
further information, please send CV and a brief statement of research 
interests to Andrew K. Swanson (aks25 at 
(, Department of Biology, 
Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio by February 15, 2004 
to receive full consideration.
