Dear Colleague,

	I have a position for a Postdoc to continue a research project that
I have been doing in Queensland, Australia, studying the community ecology
of corals and algae. Funding through the National Science Foundation is
available for up to 5 years. I hope to fill it by October 2000. The person
will be based at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Most of the
work will be data analyses with perhaps some modelling, though some field
work at my site at Heron Island, Queensland, is a possibility. I hope you
will bring this opening to the attention of your students and colleagues.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in
Population/Community Ecology. The position is available from July 1, 2000,
for a period of up to 5 years.
The main job will be analyses of a long-term data set on corals and algae.
The main criteria are: a knowledge of standard statistics for ecology,
familiarity with elementary programming and modelling, research experience
in some type of ecological field work, and imagination, curiosity, and a
knack for working independently. In addition, some knowledge of spatial
statistics, and a familiarity with the C programming language are
desirable, though not essential.  A PhD in some aspect of ecology is
required, not necessarily in coral or algal ecology.  The person will be
based at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
	Candidates should email or fax a letter describing their research
interests and experience, and a CV, with names, telephone no., fax no.,
mailing address, and email address of 3 references, to: J. H. Connell,
Dept. Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology, University of California,
Santa Barbara, CA 93106. Email: connell at Fax:
805-893-3777. .A description of work in this long-term project can be found
	This university is an EEO/AA Employer
