>>Dear Listmembers,
>>        We have available a PhD fellowship as described below.  I would
>>greatly appreciate it if you could bring this to the attention of any
>>interested students.  Thank you very much.
>>Stephen Burns
>>Doctoral Fellowship - Isotope Paleoclimatology
>>University of Bern, Switzerland
>>A Ph.D. Fellowship is available for study of climate change in the southern
>>Arabian Peninsula.  The project involves using stable isotopes and U/Th dating
>>techniques on speolothems collected from caves in Oman and Yemen to interpret
>>the effects of past variations in the Indian Ocean monsoon system on
>>climate.  The work is a collaboration between the Geologisches Intitute in
>>Switzerland, where stable isotope analyses will be done, and the University of
>>Heidelberg, Germany, where the U/Th dating will be done.  The project will
>>include both field and laboratory work.
>>Candidates with backgrounds in geology, environmental physics or chemistry are
>>encouraged to apply.  An MS degree (for candidates from North America) or
>>Diploma (European candidates) is necessary.  Laboratory experience,
>>familiarity with TIMS isotope techniques, is highly desirable.
>>The assistantship includes a stipend and covers all tuition and fees for the
>>duration of the project, which is expected to be 3 years.  Starting date
>>would be summer/fall 1997.
