1998 Stable Isotope Ecology (Lecture and Laboratory Short Courses),
University of Utah, June 15-26, 1998

These will be multi-instructor lecture (Biology 581, morning) and laboratory
(Biology 582, afternoon) short courses offered to graduate students and
postdoctoral investigators interested in learning more about the application
of stable isotopes at natural abundance levels for environmental and
ecological studies. The courses will:

1)  be offered June 15-26, 1998 at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City
2)  be limited to 18 participants in order to maximize laboratory and
instrument access 

3)  consist of a morning lecture-discussion course and an afternoon
laboratory course; there will be 10 course instructors, experts selected from
across the country for their breadth and for their interest in teaching and
interacting with students 

4)  include a hands-on laboratory experience each day, including full access
and use of two delta S mass spectrometers equipped with elemental analyzers
as well as continuous flow capacities, a 252 mass spectrometer equipped with
GC, continuous flow, pre-con, laser, and elemental analyzer capacities, and
vacuum preparation lines for organic and inorganic compounds of biological

5)  several of the evenings will be set aside for discussions of current
research interests and also there will be opportunities for social events in
the nearby Wasatch Mountains provide an opportunity for students to run some
of their own sample materials 

Applications will be accepted until February 17, 1998. Check out the home
page at <http://ecophys.biology.utah.edu/bio_581>.  We will notify you about
February 27, 1997 regarding your acceptance into the course and how to begin
planning for lodging arrangements, tuition payments, reading materials,
personal samples to run, etc.
