Hi Coral-Listers,
Just to let you know of a few more exciting reef research opportunities now available.

Newcastle University has vacancies for 2 Post-doctoral researchers to start as soon as possible within the framework of the research project FORCE "Future of Reefs in a Changing Environment" funded by the European Union. FORCE partners an inter-disciplinary team of researchers from Europe and the Caribbean to enhance the scientific basis for managing coral reefs in an era of rapid climate change and unprecedented human pressure on coastal resources. FORCE is a four-year (2010-2014) regional initiative led by Exeter University with 17 partners from Europe and throughout the Wider Caribbean Region.
Newcastle is a major UK partner and has funding for the following research positions:

Research Associate Caribbean Ecology, 2010-2013 (about 3 years) Reference Number: D670R

This post holder will support the broader FORCE consortium by carrying out ecological field work: a) to quantify the effects of habitat structure on biodiversity (reef fish and benthic organisms), and b) to carry out research on the effects of coral loss on fish and invertebrates on reefs.
