I am pleased to announce a position opening in Microbial Ecology, please 
share this with your colleagues.

A position is immediately available for a postdoctoral fellow in 
environmental molecular microbiology.  The focus of the research will be 
on a recently awarded NSF project assessing the microbial diversity 
associated with Caribbean corals.  The fellow will be responsible for 
assessing coral microbial diversity using molecular approaches and 
should have experience with DGGE and 16S rDNA clone libraries, as well 
as phylogenetic and cluster analysis.  An interest in database 
management of sequence data would also be useful.  The project is 
collaborative with Dr. Karen Nelson at The Institute for Genomic 
Research (who will be generating metagenomic libraries of select coral 
microbial communities) and Dr. Garriet Smith of the University of South 
Carolina-Aiken.  The fellow will be affiliated with the Marine 
Biomedicine and Environmental Sciences Center of the Medical University 
of South Carolina, and work in the state-of-the-art Hollings Marine 
Laboratory located on the Ft Johnson campus in Charleston, SC.  Please 
submit a CV and list of three references (with their contact 
information) to:  Dr. Pam Morris, Hollings Marine Laboratory, 331 Ft 
Johnson Rd., Charleston, SC; E-mail:  morrisp at musc.edu
