The Department of Entomology, University of California, Riverside, has
one graduate assistantship available for research on Trichogrammatidae
(Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea).

Support is guaranteed for at least a four year period at standard rates
including a partial fee remission and health benefits.

The support is available through an NSF PEET grant (Partnerships in
Enhancing Expertise in Taxonomy) (John Heraty and John Pinto PI'S) and
includes funding for research expenses, research travel, scientific meetings
and education abroad at selected centers of expertise. The emphasis in the
program will be on morphology-based revisionary studies of
Trichogrammatidae, incorporating
independent studies of molecular methods for assessing relationships.

Candidates for the masters or doctorate degree will be considered.

For details on entrance requirements at UCR contact Kathy Redd, Graduate
Student Affairs Office [kathy.redd at ucr.edu].

For information on research aspects please contact John Pinto
(john.pinto at ucr.edu) or John Heraty (john.heraty at ucr.edu). A synopsis of the
research programs on chalcidoid systematics at UCR can be found at
