The Centre for Marine Studies at the University of the West Indies, in
conjunction with the Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory, is offering a
Fellowship to a PhD student to support marine fieldwork based at the
Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory. The recipient will carry out significant
field studies in a scientific discipline relevant to coral reefs.
Applications are now invited for the 2002 Fellowship.

The Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory was established in the 1960s to
support research into all aspects of the biology, geology and hydrology of
coral reef ecosystems. Air-conditioned laboratories, boats, diving
equipment, running seawater aquaria, and accommodation units are provided
at the Laboratory. Discovery Bay is situated in an extraordinarily diverse
marine ecosystem on the north shore of Jamaica. The fringing fore reef is
very accessible. Access to Discovery Bay is easy with many international
flights into Montego Bay International Airport.

The maximum value of the Fellowship is approximately US$6,000. The in-kind
component provides bench fees at the Laboratory for up to 240 person days,
which is worth approximately $4,250 at the student rate. These days may
only be used by the Fellow and assistants who accompany the Fellow. The
cash component of up to $1,750 may be used for additional laboratory fees,
travel, freight, and equipment; it may not be used for living expenses or
salary. Unused laboratory fee days are not convertible to cash.
