Sorry to bother all of you non-employers out there, but while hooting
for owls might be good experience for me to get this summer, working
with botanical or mycological research would be even better for me.
I am a senior at Humboldt State University (California) where I am
majoring in both Environmental Biology and Botany. My real life's-blood
is MYCOLOGY and I am especially intrigued by lichen ecology.
For this summer, I am willing to do almost any sort of grunge research
type work within the fields of botany and mycology. Any time, any where.
All I ask is that either I get enough money out of it to keep up on my rent
and other bills back here and can stay reasonably warm, dry, and fed
wherever you put me. Or if it's a great enough experience, I might be
able to dig some of that money out of my parents or bank. In fact, if
you take me on an expidition to research lichens in greenland I might
be able to dig up most of the money myself.
I'll be available from May 20 to Sept. 4.
Rather than use a lot of your mail space for a complete resume (which
I can send you if you are interested) I'll just mention a few of my
GPA=3.01 (rising fast now that I can get financial aid; 3.93 last semester)
