Forwarded for Adam Slipinski and John Lawrence, the project 
supervisors - please feel free to pass it along.  This is an 
outstanding opportunity for a dedicated young coleopterist to 
participate in a wide variety of research work related to both the 
(US) NSF-funded Beetle Tree of Life project and CSIRO-funded 
interactive keys to beetle families (adults and larvae).  Please see 
the link below for detailed information, contact details, and 
application form.  Apologies for cross-posting - the position was 
approved just recently, and there's a relatively short time before 
the application deadline.  [end of editorial comment]
