I am offering a Fellowship under the US National Science Foundation  
Partnership to Enhance Expertise in Taxonomy (PEET) to support an  
enthusiastic, bright student interested in earning the Ph.D. degree in  
modern systematics at the University of Kansas.  KU is internationally  
known for its Natural History Museum and associated graduate program in  
systematics and evolutionary studies.   
	The project: Taxonomic revision and phylogeny of the  
north-temperate sea anemones of the genus *Urticina* (=*Tealia*) using a  
combination of conventional and modern techniques, including field and  
laboratory studies. 
	Timing: To begin preferably by 1 June 1996; financial support  
will continue for as much as 4.5 years, pending satisfactory progress and  
continued funding from NSF. 
	Financial: Following PEET guidelines, the graduate student will  
be supported through Research, Curatorial, and Teaching Assistantships;  
tuition costs will be covered by the grant. 
	Qualifications: Must have a strong interest in systematics and a  
willingness to learn about sea anemones.  Must be admitted to the  
graduate program of the Department of Systematics and Ecology, University  
of Kansas.  There are no citizenship requirements; non-Americans are  
encouraged to apply. 
	Inquiries: I will respond to specific queries made by e-mail,  
fax, post, or telephone.  For information on KU (the department or  
graduate school), please communicate in writing.  A person interested in  
applying for the Fellowship should send me a letter of interest, a  
curriculum vitae, a transcript (unofficial is OK), and names and contact  
information for at least three references.  The application deadline for  
summer term is in February or March; I shall begin considering candidates  
in January.
