Graduate student opportunity in reef connectivity

Funding is available to support a graduate student interested in 
studying genetic connectivity among coral populations.  Interested 
students should be residents of a MesoAmerican country (i.e., Belize, 
Honduras, Guatemala or Mexico) and enrolled in a graduate program at a 
university in that country.  Students from other Caribbean countries 
will be considered.  Research for this project may involve travel to and 
SCUBA diving at various reefs throughout MesoAmerica and training in 
genetic analysis of scleractinian corals.  Course work will be completed 
at the student's home university but laboratory training will occur in a 
lab in the US.  Alternatively, we will accept applications for a 
resident of a MesoAmerican (or other Caribbean country) to enroll in the 
graduate program at the University at Buffalo. 

Previous experience in molecular techniques is not required, but 
candidate should demonstrate a good work ethic and be self-motivated.  
Support is available as early as January 2006, but can begin the summer 
or fall or 2006 if necessary.  Interested applicants should contact Dr. 
Mary Alice Coffroth (coffroth at buffalo.edu) with a letter of interest and 
curriculum vita with names and contact info of three references.
