biology, and geobiology), (2) use museum collections in their  
research, and (3) have research interests centered on time intervals  
and taxonomic groups that are regionally relevant (Cenozoic marine  
invertebrates and microfossils) are particularly encouraged to apply.   
(See for more information about the museum.)
