GRADUATE STUDENT POSITION
A PhD student position is available to work within AquAliens program funded by Swedish EPA. This program aims at increasing our knowledge on how to assess the risks posed by introduced aquatic species and their impact on ecosystems and economy (further information is available at:
http://www.naturvardsverket.se/dokument/omverket/forskn/mfo/mfodok/aqua.pdf
The focus of the research will be on different aspects of biology, ecology and population genetics of Cercopagis pengoi, a large exotic zooplankter. The integration of this species into the Baltic Sea ecosystem has a potential to modify food-web dynamics and is likely to alter the availability and quality of food available to support the fisheries. Depending on e interests of the successful applicant, the approach may include a different mix of questions and methods. Applicants should have basic education in biology (BSc/MSc), with preferences given to those with extra training in plankton ecology, fish biology or molecular biology. An application should include CV, attested copies of examination certificates, copies of honor's thesis and any relevant documents.

We are currently seeking potentially interested candidates for an Environment Protection Agency (EPA) sponsored DOCTORAL SHOLARSHIP.
We are expecting to be in the position of appointing a three year post-grad studentship in early 2003 (based at the Geography Department Mary Immaculate College and the Department of Life Sciences, University of Limerick).
The post-graduate student will focus on palaeolimnological applications of pseudofossil analyses (diatoms and cladocera) and the development of an Irish Ecoregion Community Training-set and Ecological Restoration Targets
This scholarship is directly linked to IN-SIGHT: Identification of reference-status for Irish lake typologies using palaeolimnological methods and techniques. This project was selected for funding under the ERTDI Programme 2000-2006 (Priority Area: Palaeolimnological Investigation for candidate reference lakes). This multi-disciplinary project involves personnel from Trinity College Dublin, University of Ulster Coleraine, NUI Dublin, University College London and MIC-University of Limerick.
