Editorial Assistant, JOURNAL OF PHYCOLOGY

Journal of Phycology jphycol at maine.maine.edu

Ms. Cathy Richards (Chelly) will leave her post as Editorial Assistant for
the JOURNAL OF PHYCOLOGY in early August to accept a position in
environmental sciences with the Peace Corps.  We are seeking a replacement,
as described in the ad that appears below.  Either I or Chelly can answer
further questions about the duties and benefits of the position, life in
Maine, etc. at the contact e-mail and address given in the ad.  One of the
major benefits is that I am willing to make the hours flexible enough for
someone to pursue further course work that might be required for
application to graduate school or to make other career decisions.
Professional employees at the University of Maine may take up to 8 units of
course work (2 courses, typically) a semester without charge.  During her
year as an editorial assistant, Ms. Richards has completed a graduate
Chemical Oceanography Field Techniques course and a molecular biology
course. We have a large faculty with marine and freshwater interests at the
University, including 5 phycologists, so the employee will have the
opportunity to develop local professional interests, if desired. Maine is a
lovely place to live with spectacular opportunities for hiking, skiing,
canoeing, and other outdoor activities.  I consider this position ideal as
a one to two year position for a recent graduate.  Please bring it to the
attention of suitable undergraduates in your laboratory and classes.
Thanks,
Susan H. Brawley, Editor, JOURNAL OF PHYCOLOGY
