Two graduate assistantships (M.S. or Ph.D.) will be available starting Fall
2003 to work on research projects concerning freshwater benthic algae in
streams.  The first project will investigate the nutritional importance of
benthic algae in stream food webs, using biochemical and stoichiometric
markers. The second project is expected to focus on the biogeography and
molecular systematics of freshwater brown algae (Phaeophyceae).  Both
projects will employ field and laboratory approaches.  Prospective students
should have experience in algal culture, molecular techniques, and/or
freshwater ecology.

Funding will be provided either as Research or Teaching assistantships,
depending on availability of funds (T.A.-ships are funded) and student
background.  The work will be based at the Louis Calder Center - Biological
Field Station of Fordham University.  We have well equipped laboratories
with a range of analytical, aquatic ecology, algal culture, molecular and
microscopy equipment available for these projects.  Details of the station
can be found at: http://www.fordham.edu/calder_center .
- Stipends will range between $15,000 to $17,000 per year, plus full
tuition remission.

- For any questions, please contact me by email (wehr at fordham.edu) or by
writing: Dr. John D. Wehr, Louis Calder Center - Biological Station,
Fordham University, PO Box 887, Armonk, NY 10504.
