GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIP

A graduate research assistantship is available for students interested
in
pursuing a Ph.D. in ecology.  The successful applicant will work on a
multi-investigator project that examines the effects of invasion by
cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum) on nitrogen dynamics in arid regions of the
western United States.  The primary study site is in Canyonlands
National
Park, but opportunities exist for research in other desert ecosystems. 
The
student will work in the lab of R.D. Evans at the University of
Arkansas.
The RA will cover the student stipend and tuition, plus all travel and
research expenses. Exceptional students may also qualify for an
additional
research stipend from the University.  The University of Arkansas has a
young group of active ecologists offering a variety of courses in
ecology
and evolutionary biology.  Excellent opportunities exist at the Center
for
Advanced Spatial Technologies for students interested in GIS and remote
sensing, and at the Stable Isotope Science Center of the Ozarks for
students interested in stable isotope applications in ecology.

Requirements:  The student must be accepted into the graduate program in
Biological Sciences at the University of Arkansas.  The starting date is
spring semester of 2000, although this can be delayed for exceptional
applicants.
