Subject: Hofstra job posting 

The Hofstra University Marine Laboratory (HUML), in St. Ann's Bay, 
Jamaica, West Indies, is searching for a pair of qualified persons to run 
the laboratory from 1 October 1997 to 31 August 1998 (11 months). 

The successful candidates will be responsible for assisting as many as 35 
visiting professors with their courses by giving guest lectures to their 
classes and accompanying them on field trips.  They will also have full 
responsibility for teaching 12-day classes of mature persons 
(Elderhostels).  They will maintain our seawater system and will 
participate in our ongoing research program.  They will have full 
administrative responsibilities, and will be the only Hofstra staff on 

HUML will be entering its 18th year and has grown into a major field 
station.  It consists of a two-story, three-classroom laboratory building, 
a wet laboratory building with a circulating seawater system, a 
library/equipment building, and a 30-room hotel.  The facility is served 
by a fleet of three boats, several buses, and a SCUBA shop. 

The lab is surrounded by an extraordinary array of habitats, from the 
three-kilometer long coral reef just offshore to miles of pristine rocky 
shores with extraordinary zonation, to a nearby mangrove swamp.  A tiny 
island lies just offshore.  A short boat ride brings classes to a cave 
containing bats, which can be entered only by snorkeling, a sunken 
shipwreck, walls of live coral, beautiful, palm-fringed coves, and other 
spectacular sites. 

This is primarily a teaching facility and the successful candidates should 
have teaching skills and a personality appropriate to the jobs.  The 
salary for the 11-month positions is $6,000 each + all benefits including 
an apartment, board, medical insurance, a 12-day training course (in 
Jamaica), and airfare.  In other words, all expenses are paid and the 
total salary may be saved.  The positions are usually filled by couples 
without children. 

For further information send a letter indicating why you believe that you 
are of the "star" calibre capable of assuming this major responsibility
