             FOUR POSTDOCTORAL or PH.D POSITIONS
                             
   A multi-university collaborative project examining the
evolutionary ecology of exotic species introductions into
the Great Lakes is looking for four candidates for
postdoctoral or Ph.D. studies.  Four research areas are
currently under investigation: 1) Zooplankton diversity:
allozyme and DNA markers will be used to diagnose
unrecognized species invasions and to ascertain the source
locations of currently recognized exotics.  Contact P.D.N.
Hebert Email: phebert at uoguelph.ca, 2) Theoretical ecology:
mathematical theory of biological invasions.  Contact P.
Yodzis Email: pyodzis at uoguelph.ca, 3) Zooplankton feeding
ecology:  feeding rates and prey electivities, effects of
_Bythotrephes density on per capita feeding rates, and
spatial distribution of this predator and its prey.
Contact W.G. Sprules Email:
gsprules at cyclops.erin.utoronto.ca, 4) Diffusion of exotic
species: development of microsatellites for species of
exotic molluscs and GIS modelling of diffusion from the
source populations identified with these molecular markers.

Application packages should include a resume, academic
transcripts, the names, telephone numbers, and Email
addresses of three academic referees, and an explanation of
how your background relates to the position and should be
sent to:  Dr. Elizabeth Boulding, Dept. of Zoology,
University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada  N1G 2W1.
Positions will remain open until they are filled.  D.K.
Padilla (U. Wisconsin, Madison) and J.E. Havel (Southwest
Missouri State U.) are also collaborators on this project.
The University of Guelph is committed to an employment
equity program that includes special measures to achieve
diversity among its faculty and staff.  We therefore,
particularly encourage applications from qualified
