at the University of Alabama Tanglewood Biological Station, and population
genetic/genomic analyses. Requirements: M.S. in Ecology and Evolution
or related field with preference for candidates who have a background
in freshwater ecosystems, experimental ecology, and/or evolutionary
ecology. Interested students should send an e-mail to Dr. Jennifer Howeth
( with "Ph.D. Graduate Assistantship" in the title,
and include their CV, statement of research interests, writing sample,
GRE scores (if known), unofficial copies of transcripts, and contact
