       Graduate research assistantship available (Ph.D).  Dr. Florence
Thomas of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab has a 5 year assistantship available
for a Ph.D. level student to work on a funded project in community scale
biomechanics.  The assitantship includes a stipend and tuition to the
University of South Alabama's program in Marine Science.  The research is
interdisciplinary in nature and uses a comparative approach to explore how
organism morphology affects chemical and particle transport at the scale of
the community.  The research will include both field and laboratory
components.  Initial experiments will focus on coral reefs, seagrass
communties, gorgonians, and submerged aquatic vegitation.  The position is
appropriate for students interested in biomechanics, functional morphology,
marine ecology, and the role of physical processes in coastal environments.
