A graduate research assistantship is available for students interested
in pursuing a Ph.D. in ecology.  The successful applicant will work on a
multi-investigator project that examines the effects of invasion by
cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum) on nitrogen dynamics in arid regions of the
western United States.  The primary study site is in Canyonlands
National Park, but opportunities exist for research in other desert
ecosystems.  The student will work in the lab of R.D. Evans at the
University of Arkansas.

The RA will cover the student stipend and tuition, plus all travel and
research expenses. Exceptional students may also qualify for an
additional research stipend from the University.  The University of
Arkansas has a young group of active ecologists offering a variety of
courses in ecology and evolutionary biology.  Excellent opportunities
exist at the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies for students
interested in GIS and remote sensing, and at the Stable Isotope Science
Center of the Ozarks for students interested in stable isotope
applications in ecology.

Requirements:  The student must be accepted into the graduate program in
