I am seeking applicants to the graduate program at UNCW who want to work
on the ecology of sponges on Caribbean coral reefs as part of projects
funded for the next 2-4 years by NOAA/NURC and NSF.  Current projects
include allelopathic interactions between sponges and corals, sponge
chemical defenses, and the bleaching and demography of the giant barrel
sponge, Xestospongia muta.


Applicants should be academically competitive (very good GPA and GRE
scores), should have previous field and research experience, and should
be certified SCUBA divers.


Additional information is available at the website below.  Please pass
this message on to any excellent students you may know.


Many thanks!
