Seeking students interested in pursuing graduate degrees (MS or PhD) in the 
research areas of Systematics & Biogeography of Algae.  In Fall 2004, I 
plan to take 1 or 2 new graduate students into my laboratory.

At present I have NSF funding to study the systematics and biogeography of 
the Batrachospermales (freshwater Rhodophyta). Students would be funded 
each year with ½ research assistantship and ½ teaching 
assistantship.  There are collecting trips planned to the Southern 
Hemisphere in which students will be encouraged to participate. The 
research is centered on building a robust molecular phylogeny of the 
Batrachospermales using at least rbcL and LSU gene data.

The Department of Environmental and Plant Biology offers a MS degree, which 
has at its core a broad training in plant sciences through course work. We 
also have a PhD program administered through the Department of Biological 
Sciences. In that program a student can follow either Ecology and 
Evolutionary Biology or a Molecular and Cell Biology track. For more 
information on admissions requirements, graduate programs and stipends, 
please see the departmental website at

If interested, please email me directly with your interest and resume.

Cheers, Morgan Vis
