As part of a continuing commitment to advance underrepresented scholars in
higher education, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is
pleased to announce the availability of at least five positions in the
Carolina Minority Postdoctoral Scholars Program. Postdoctoral Scholars
may not teach more than one course per year, and will spend essentially
full time on research. Applications for study in any discipline
represented at the University are welcome. The Curriculum in Applied and
Materials Sciences strongly encourages candidates interested in electronic
and optical materials, polymers, or biomaterials to apply.

The stipend will be $34,000 per academic year. Health benefits are
available. Some funds will be available for research expenses, including
travel. Minority students who will have completed their doctoral degree
not later than July 1, 1998, and no earlier than July 1, 1994 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 Afro-Americans and Native Americans.

A complete application will include a curriculum vitae, sample
publications and/or dissertation chapters, a statement of research plans,
and three letters of recommendation. All materials should be sent to the
Carolina Minority Postdoctoral Scholars Program, Office of the
Vice-Provost for Graduate Studies and Research, CB #4000, South Building,
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC
27599-4000, and must be postmarked by February 1, 1998. Incomplete or
late applications will not be accepted.

University and its research activities are invited to browse the Research
