Subject: Student intern opportunities

     I posted the following notice of summer internship opportunities for
women and minorities recently on WISENET.  Please note that the application
deadline has since been extended to *18 May*.  Field Museum would greatly
appreciate your circulating this information in any way you wish
(electronically, univ. bulletin boards, etc.) to help us reach potentially
interested students.

                                 ANNOUNCES

           1993 Summer Intern Employment for Women and Minorities


     The Committee on Environmental and Evolutionary Biology (CEEB) of the
Field Museum of Natural History has summer employment opportunities for up
to 18 graduating high school seniors and undergraduates with interests in
Geology and Biology.  Though we encourage all interested applicants to
apply, particular interest will be paid to students with interest, course
work, or training in the fields of Zoology, Botany and Paleontology.  Among
the goals of the program are to expose high school seniors and
undergraduates to potential career paths in natural history.  As such,
students participate in an educational program where they participate in
weekly discussions and are exposed to museum collections and Curatorial
research activities within CEEB.  We restrict applicants to minorities and
women since these groups are underepresented in these fields.

     Most of the positions are for July and August but several positions
within the Invertebrate Division will begin in June.  Responsibilities focus
on aspects of collection management, including specimen preparation,
organization, verification and cataloguing.  Please send resume, statement
of interest, high school or college transcript, and names of two
teachers/professors (with telephone #) to Dr. Julian Kerbis, Program
Coordinator, 1993 Summer Intern Program, Division of Mammals, Field Museum
of Natural History, Chicago, IL 60605-2496.  Pay will be $7.50 per hour.
Application packet due no later than May 18, 1993. Telephone inquiries to
Dr. Julian Kerbis 312-922-9410, extension 470.
