As part of a federal grant from the National Science Foundation, the Paleontological Research Institution (PRI) Collections Department needs help to curate the Carl Brett and Gordon Baird Devonian Stratigraphic Collections. Working at PRI is a great way for students to get real world work experience in a unique environment, while contributing a great deal to the mission of our organization.
Tasks may include cataloging stratigraphic samples in the Specify database, physical curation (bagging and boxing the samples, associating labels with the samples, storing samples on compactor storage units) and photography of specimens.
