Subject: Hiring student researchers for Mammal Diversity Database

External Email - Exercise Caution
Interested in mammal taxonomy? We are hiring Student Research Assistants to work on data collection & curation efforts for the Mammal Diversity Database (MDD; https://mammaldiversity.org<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https*3A*2F*2Fmammaldiversity.org*2F&data=02*7C01*7CMAMMAL-L*40si-listserv.si.edu*7Cb9f31a3ed069450c35b008d7db183279*7C989b5e2a14e44efe93b78cdd5fc5d11c*7C0*7C0*7C637218769284466459&sdata=ohS1C7CW*2F0jE3zeYWfxKdMLirfTm0hwYN0KQQzevP2Y*3D&reserved=0__;JSUlJSUlJSUlJSUlJSU!!HXCxUKc!iEq44tDO6Bm5CMnDQVwIeXEoUaSpYDQ4FBJ0Y-Poxj6BuXYJxykPW2waqNOISJ8TAQ$>). The MDD is an updatable online database supported by the American Society of Mammalogists Biodiversity Committee that aims to centralize the latest changes in mammalian taxonomy. Our goal is to aggregate, curate, and compile primary literature citations on new and historical species descriptions and revisions into regular digital releases that are downloadable in comma-delimited format to promote rigorous studies of mammalian biodiversity worldwide. The 2018 taxonomy list (v1.0) is available at https://mammaldiversity.org<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https*3A*2F*2Fmammaldiversity.org*2F&data=02*7C01*7CMAMMAL-L*40si-listserv.si.edu*7Cb9f31a3ed069450c35b008d7db183279*7C989b5e2a14e44efe93b78cdd5fc5d11c*7C0*7C0*7C637218769284466459&sdata=ohS1C7CW*2F0jE3zeYWfxKdMLirfTm0hwYN0KQQzevP2Y*3D&reserved=0__;JSUlJSUlJSUlJSUlJSU!!HXCxUKc!iEq44tDO6Bm5CMnDQVwIeXEoUaSpYDQ4FBJ0Y-Poxj6BuXYJxykPW2waqNOISJ8TAQ$> and the 2019 taxonomy list (v2.0) will soon be available on Zenodo.

We are now working on the 2020 MDD taxonomy and need your help!
