There are research opportunities for one pre-doc and one post-doc to develop
cooperative and collaborative scientific research and training opportunities at
the US Environmental Protection Agency, at Gulf Breeze, Florida.  The
individuals will develop research under the mentorship of Dr. Deborah L. Santavy
and are expected to spend a portion of their time at the laboratory in Gulf

POST-DOC Reef Coral Stressors.  The Post Doctoral Research Associate  will
investigate the effects of anthropogenic and climate change stressors on reef
corals. The effects of UVB in combination with locally identified stresses such
as temperature, turbidity, nutrients, and pollutants such as polycyclic aromatic
hydrocarbons, which are known to be photochemically enhanced, are largely
unexplored and will be the focus of research.

PRE-DOC  Coral Reef Diseases. Graduate Student to investigate histopathology,
etiology, microbiology, and/or ecology of disease processes in the dominant
coral species, Acropora palmata, in the Florida Keys. The major objective of
this research is to determine if infectious diseases and/or abiotic stressors
are responsible for tissue necrosis and loss of corals in the Florida Keys.

GED/UWF Science Training in Ecology Program (STEP) is designed to provide
undergraduate and graduate students
as well as post-doctoral level researchers with cooperative and collaborative
scientific research and training opportunities. It is
anticipated that most, if not all, research will be conducted at the
Environmental Protection Agency, National Health and
Environmental Effects Research Laboratory, Gulf Ecology Division, Gulf Breeze,
FL (GED) (
