The FBA is looking for a volunteer to research, list and photograph our herbarium specimens, which date from the 1930s to the 1960s. This is a great opportunity for someone seeking experience in curating natural history specimens, and will also offer the chance to gain knowledge in other areas of collections work and science education.
This placement will last between 3 to 8 weeks, depending on availability. Ideally the applicant should be able to work between the hours of 10am and 4pm, a minimum of 2 days per week, starting mid-July 2016.
