Estimados colegas:
Les reenvío este anuncio sobre una excelente oportunidad en Estados Unidos para estudiantes que quieran hacer doctorado en paleobotánica. Noten que dentro de los proyectos propuestos, hay uno en el Triásico de Argentina y otro en el Carbonífero-Pérmico de Sudamérica.
Para solicitar mas información, por favor comúniquense con la Dra. Jacobs

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

The Department of Geological Sciences at Southern Methodist University currently has four NSF-funded graduate research assistantships, to be awarded for PhD- or Master's-level study, for terrestrial paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatological reconstruction. These GRA's will support projects focused upon (1) Late Oligocene paleobotanical, sedimentological or geochemical research in northwestern Ethiopia (or a combination of these), (2) Stable isotope geochemical reconstructions of paleoclimate from paleosol profiles and fossil floras preserved in (i) Carnian-age strata from northwestern Argentina, (ii) Permo-Carboniferous strata of western Europe, central Asia and South America and (iii) Middle and Upper Permian strata of central sub-Saharan Africa, central- and southeast Asia. Research projects will include both field and laboratory studies, and will be integrated into ongoing multidisciplinary projects involving faculty and students from 11 different institutions located on 5 different continents. Because of the multi-disciplinary nature of these research projects, we are particularly interested in students with strong backgrounds in sedimentology, plant taxonomy and taphonomy, light-stable isotope geochemistry, and pedology. Please contact Drs. Bonnie Jacobs (bjacobs@xxxxxxx) and/or Neil Tabor (ntabor@xxxxxxx), Department of Geological Sciences, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX 75275-0395.

ALSO- Please note that the next Midcontinent Paleobotanical Colloquium will be held at SMU, March 16 - 18, 2007. For more information, please go to: www.smu.edu/geology
