Montana State University has an opening for a graduate student in their 
Medical Mycology Predoctoral Training Program (MMPTP) which is funded, in 
part, by the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NIAID).  The 
intent of the MMPTP is to provide support and training for graduate 
students who wish to pursue a Ph.D. with research and training emphasis 
in medical mycology.  The number of serious fungal infections has increased 
dramatically over the past decade and the number is expected to continue 
to increase.  People who develop immmunological deficiencies are 
especially at risk.  The deficiencies may occur because of infectious 
disease such as AIDS, or because of modern medical practices such as 
organ transplants and anti-cancer treatments.  Eleven research faculty 
from four departments at MSU will serve as Ph.D. dissertation advisors 
for trainees in the MMPTP.  Clinical laboratory training opportunities, 
medical mycology courses, workshops and travel support to national 
scientific meetings are also available through the Program.  The graduate 
students (trainees) will receive an annual stipend of $14,000 and fee 
waivers.  We currently are accepting applications for this coming 
academic year.  The following minimum criteria are required to be 
considered for admission into the Program:  US citizenship; baccalaureate 
degree in a biological or physical science; grade point average of 3.0 or 
better in science courses; graduate record exam (GRE).
	Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
