        Graduate Research Assistantship Available
                (apologies for cross-postings)

        Beginning September 1995, possibly earlier, we have a research
assistantship available for a highly qualified M.S. or Ph.D. student with
major interest in the taxonomy of marine plankton diatoms.  The funds are
available for a minimum of two years, with possible continued funding in
the case of a Ph.D. student.  Applicants should have a career goal of
phytoplankton biodiversity studies with emphasis on diatom taxonomy or
life history studies.
        Qualified applicants can be accepted at the University of Rhode
Island through the Graduate School of Oceanography or the newly formed
(from Botany and Zoology) Department of Biological Sciences.  Entrance
and curricular requirements for GSO and DBS differ somewhat.  Details on
application to Graduate School can be obtained from the Graduate
Admissions Office, University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI 02881-0809
(tel. 401-792-2872), or from the Academic Affairs Office, GSO/URI,
Narragansett, RI 02882-1197  (tel. 401-792 6246).
        Stipends for the 1995-96 academic year are approximately
$8305-9185 (20hrs/wk, 36wks), and $7392-8175 for the summer (40hrs/wk,
16wks).  Annual stipends thus range from $15696-17360 for the first
calendar year.  Also included is $8008 full tuition expense.  Completed
application packages and all supporting documents must be received by 15
April 1995; earlier application and correspondence is encouraged.
