Dear Dr Flessa,


I would like to know if the position with your group has nationality restrictions.

I am portuguese and hold an EU passport, but have no green card for the US.


I am a biologist and worked for many years with Jeremy Jackson and the Panama Paleontology Project. I work mostly with shallow water mollusk communities and am currently finishing a visiting position in Kiel, north Germany. 

Among my current interests are studies of past climate events, its reflection in shallow marine communities and results extrapolation to todays' climate trends.


I know of your work of course and it would be a pleasure to be able to work with your group.

I have a considerable teaching experience both in Panama and here in Kiel.


I would appreciate if you could let me know of any other information concerning the position (is there an age limit for example?).


Thank you for your attention. Sincerely

Helena Fortunato
