GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIPS in PLANT BIOLOGY.  Graduate assistantships are available for students interested in pursuing a M.S. or Ph.D. degree in plant biology (ecology, organismal biology, and molecular biology) at Ohio University in Athens, southeastern Ohio.

Athens is nestled in a river valley in the Appalachian foothills and is surrounded by numerous local, state and national natural areas available for spiritual refreshment and scientific research.  The university and the city are culturally and racially diverse and environmentally progressive ("Utne Reader" magazine recently rated Athens as one of the 10 most progressive cities in America).
