Postdoctoral Researcher
(Marine Phycologist)
Department of Plant Biology

A position is available beginning November 1, 1995 for a marine phycologist
to participate in a taxonomic survey of macroscopic marine algae from the
Gulf of Mexico in conjunction with a similar study of the marine
invertebrate fauna.  Algal sampling will be completed by a separate field
team although the PR can be involved directly as needed and appropriate.
Accurate algal identification is the primary objective; however, ecological
data being generated concurrently will provide an exciting opportunity for
examining patterns and causes of taxon distribution.  Ongoing extensive
molecular systematics research provides the opportunity to learn (if
necessary) and apply molecular approaches to the identification of
"difficult" taxa.  Development of a computer-based intelligent-key to the
macroscopic marine algae collected is another possible component of the
project and ample computer-resources are available.  Requirements: a PhD in
marine phycology or closely related area and extensive experience in the
identification of marine algae.   Additional Desired Qualifications:
experience and/or interest in: marine algal ecology and biogeography,
molecular systematics, and/or the algal flora of the Gulf of Mexico.
Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience.  Application
deadline date is October 6, 1995, or until candidate is selected.  Send
letter of application and resume to:
