Graduate Student Positions available

I have openings for 1 PhD and 1 MS student in my laboratory 
starting
Fall 2003. Student research will focus on biogeography and 
systematics
of the freshwater red algal order Batrachospermales.  The thesis
projects would be a combination of DNA sequencing and 
morphological
analyses.  Collecting trips to New Zealand/Tasmania, northern 
Brazil,
Malaysia and South Africa are planned and the students would
participate in 1-3 of these trips. Our department (Environmental &
Plant Biology; http://www.plantbio.ohiou.edu/ ) has a very strong
tradition in teaching of Botany. A MS student will take courses that
will allow him/her to be broadly trained in plant biology.  The course
work of a PhD student would center more on the area of systematics. A
research focus area within the department is Phylogenetic Systematics
which can be found at
http://www.plantbio.ohiou.edu/epb/faculty/research/phyl_sysindex.htm .
The students will be funded in part by a Research Assistant position
and the other portion by a Teaching Assistant.  The anticipated
2003/2004 academic year stipend for a MS student is $13,830 and PhD is
$16,000. Both include tuition waiver. Deadline for application is
January 15th. More information about graduate studies within our
department can be found at
http://www.plantbio.ohiou.edu/epb/grad/graduate.htm

Information about myself, my current students and past students can be
found at the following website:

Please contact me directly via email (vis-chia at ohio.edu) if you are
interested in pursuing graduate research in my laboratory and/or have
any questions.

Cheers, Morgan Vis
