1 - 2 graduate MS position openings aquatic ecology lab to start in Fall 2010.  I am looking for independent thinkers and workers who are honest, hard-working and motivated to study aquatic organisms and/or ecosystems. Thesis projects will involve wetland research (related to the greater Everglades and its restoration) and could range in specifics from population ecology to trophic ecology or community dynamics.

The position(s) will be supported each year with a combination of research assistantships and teaching assistantships (including a stipend and a tuition waiver).

Qualifications: The positions require a bachelors degree in biology, zoology, fisheries, or a related field.  A demonstrated strong work ethic and the ability to work independently or as part of a team are required.  Prior research experience collecting quantitative data in aquatic ecosystems is highly desirable.  Ability and willingness to perform physical tasks in remote settings with harsh environmental conditions is absolutely necessary for these positions.  Minimum academic qualifications include GRE scores > 1000 (verbal + quantitative) and an undergraduate GPA > 3.0.

Interested students should contact:
