Graduate Research Assistant - Periphyton Ecology

Auburn University is offering a Graduate Research Assistantship within the Dept. of Biological Sciences, beginning Fall 2005 (exact starting date negotiable). Funding is available for up to 3 years (2005-2007), with additional support provided by Graduate Teaching Assistantships in Biological Sciences on a competitive basis (total annual stipend $16,000). A full tuition waiver also will be awarded. Both M.S. or Ph.D. students are encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will conduct experimental research designed to evaluate the efficacy of catchment-scale restoration practices on structure and function of stream periphyton, conducted at the Ft. Benning Military Base, western Georgia. Students are expected to interact with faculty and graduate students from Auburn and Oak Ridge National Laboratory on parallel studies involving soil/stream biogeochemistry and riparian vegetation dynamics. Selection will be based on grades (GPA), GREs (minimum combined score of 1000 on v-GRE & q-GRE), and letters of reference from at least 3 persons with sufficient knowledge of the applicant's potential for research. Those with a strong research background in stream ecology and/or algal ecology / phycology will be given top consideration.
