Greetings all, 

Our apologies for not getting this out more quickly.  I had thought we 
had posted it earlier, but apparently not.  The application forms are 
available on our HBOI website (www.hboi.edu).

The Division of Marine Sciences, Harbor Branch Oceanographic 
Institution, Inc., has an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow, to begin as 
soon as January 1, 1997.  Postdoctoral Fellows work closely with one of 
the Principal Investigators in the Division.  While research can be 
conducted in any discipline within marine science, three PI+s have 
identified specific interests for postdoctoral research: 

*Bioluminescence (Dr. Edie Widder, PI) has an opportunity for a post 
doctoral fellow to work on a project involving the development of a 3D 
mapping technique which uses computer image analysis and tracking 
algorithms to identify midwater zooplankton  based on their 
bioluminescent signatures.  Applicants should have a strong background 
in mathematical ecology.  Some experience with C++ programming 
preferred.  The successful candidate will receive training in 
bioluminescence, quantitative light measurements and submersible based 
data collection techniques. 

*Marine Botany (Dr. Dennis Hanisak, PI) has an opportunity for a 
post-doctoral fellow to work on the ecology or physiology of marine 
macroalgae or seagrasses.  Of particular interest would be candidates 
with interest and expertise in nitrogen or carbon ecophysiology of 
seagrasses, or macroalgae - nutrient interactions. 

*Symbiosis and Coral Biology (Dr. Clay Cook, PI) has opportunities in 
two areas of research: (1)  the effect of inorganic nutrients on the 
biology of reef building corals, and (2) the influence of host cell 
habitat on physiology and gene expression of symbiotic dinoflagellates, 
using the sea anemone Aiptasia pallida as a model. 

Applicants who have received their Ph.D. within the last five years are 
eligible to apply (the degree must be in hand before beginning the 
fellowship).  This fellowship is for 18 months, with an annual stipend 
of $25,000 ($37,500 total stipend); health benefits are available.  To 
receive additional information and application materials, contact:

PI of their interest:  widder at hboi.edu, hanisak at hboi.edu, or 
ccook at hboi.edu.  Final review and selection of the fellow will be made 
ca. December 13, 1996.
