Dear colleagues,

I would like to draw your attention to a postdoctoral research 
fellowship opportunity at the Centre Scientifique de Monaco directed by 
Prof. Denis Allemand (CSM; http://www.centrescientifique.mc).

You will join the team of ecophysiology to study photosynthetic 
processes in Mediterranean symbioses (such as in gorgonians and 
scleractinian symbiotic corals), the importance of auto-and 
heterotrophy in such organisms, the role of symbionts in the animal 
metabolism and the photosynthetic response to environmental changes.

Selection criteria include:
* A PhD in relevant disciplines and experience of scuba diving, 
preferably qualified to advanced level,
* An excellent publication record for stage of career,
* the knowledge of fluorometry, and
* Capacity to bring fresh approaches to the study of temperate coral 
and gorgonian ecophysiology that will complement existing areas of 
strength in the Centre.

The position will be available in January 2008. Appointment will be 
through January 2009 in the first instance. Applications will be 
accepted until end of October 2007.

Enquiries to:
Dr. C. Pagès 				or 	Prof. Denis Allemand
