Sorry folks, the previous email didn't carry requisite attachment. 
here's the ad:

An opportunity for post-doctoral research on coral reefs of the Red Sea 
is available at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The successful 
applicant will join a team of biologists, chemists and oceanographers in 
an integrated study of natural and anthropogenic impacts on the tissue 
health, nutritional status, and rates of skeletal growth/carbonate 
production by the dominant reef building species in the Red Sea region. 
The position is available now for a maximum duration of 2.5 years. It is 
based in Woods Hole but requires several field expeditions; the first is 
scheduled for May 2008.

A PhD in a relevant discipline, an excellent publication record and an 
AAUS or equivalent dive certification are required. Extensive field work 
experience and knowledge of Indo-Pacific coral species is preferred. 
Field work will include surveys, testing and deployment of 
multi-parameter underwater logging instruments, use of underwater 
fluorometer diving PAM, and operation of submersible core-drill. 
Laboratory tasks will include analyses of tissue (lipid stores, 
chlorophyll and some histology) and quantification of skeletal growth 
parameters using CT scanning techniques. Experience in many or all of 
these areas is desirable.

To apply, email curriculum vitae, including a list of publications, 
statement of research interests, and the names and addresses of four 
references to the following address: seayou at whoi.edu
