As part of a continuing commitment to advance underrepresented scholars in
higher education, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is
to announce the availability of at least five positions in the Carolina
Minority Postdoctoral Scholars Program. If Postdoctoral Scholars would
like to teach they can, but not more than one course per year, and will
essentially full time on research. Applications for study in any
discipline represented at the University are welcome. The Department of
Physics and
Astronomy and the Curriculum in Applied and Materials Sciences at the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill strongly encourage candidates
interested physics, astronomy, or materials science to apply. Further
information about the Department and the Curriculum can be found at
www.physics.unc.edu and www.unc.edu/depts/appl_sci/.

The stipend will be $34,000 per calendar year. Health benefits are
available. Some funds are available for research expenses, including
travel. Minority students who will have completed their doctoral degree no
later than July 1, 2001, and no earlier than July 1, 1997 are eligible to
apply. Preference will be given to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
This program is funded by the State of North Carolina and places emphasis
on recent Afro-American and Native American Ph.D. recipients.

A complete application will include curriculum vitae, copies of
publications, a statement of research plans, and three letters of
recommendation. Recommendation letters should accompany application
