Graduate student assistantship available NOW  to study fungus 
implicated in world-wide frog die-offs (Science 284:728, 1999).
The project will study the population genetics, biology and 
infective strategies of this recently discovered chytrid fungus which 
has been isolated from frog skin.  Graduate student research will 
include determining the range of environmental conditions the fungus 
can survive in and studying the enzymes that enable it to enter and 
live in amphibian skin cells. The student may also be involved in DNA 
fingerprinting of isolates of the fungus for population studies. This 
project is suitable for a master's graduate student with interests 
in fungi, amphibians or ecology.  The funds for this assistantship 
are from a ICREB grant from NSF.  Please contact Seanna Annis 
(sannis at , 207-581-2621), or Joyce Longcore 
(longcore at, 207-581-4396), 5722 Deering Hall, Dept. of 
Biological Sciences, University of Maine, Orono, ME, 04469.
