[Coral-List] Seeking new MS/PhD graduate students to study sponge/coral ecology

I am seeking applicants to the graduate program at UNCW who want to work
on the ecology of sponges on Caribbean coral reefs as part of projects
funded for the next 2-4 years by NOAA/NURC and NSF, with field work in
the Florida Keys and Bahamas.  Current projects include allelopathic
interactions between sponges and corals, sponge chemical defenses,
trophic interactions involving sponges in reefs and mangroves, and the
bleaching and demography of the giant barrel sponge, Xestospongia muta.


Applicants would enter Summer/Fall 2007 as MS students with potential
for continuing on for a PhD in Marine Biology.  They should be
academically competitive (very good GPA and GRE scores), should have
previous field and research experience, and should be certified SCUBA


Additional information is available at the websites below.  Please pass
this message on to any excellent students you may know.


Many thanks!
