Good Morning Jim,

Once again the USFWS is recruiting for the Director's Fellowship Program; a summer fellowship program that allows current college students to get USFWS experience and confers non-competitive hiring status in the USFWS once the student has received their degree. Would you be so kind as to post this on the various career list serves you host to help spread the word. All of the application details are on the attached flier and there is a link to the descriptions of the specific projects.

I am working for USFWS in Wisconsin now and our lab is recruiting a position to work on a bioinformatics project for Asian Carp monitoring in the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins. We're looking for some high quality applicants for this project and hoping you can help us get the word out. This will be a great opportunity for someone who has genetics and bioinformatics experience and wants to get a feel for working in a federal natural resources agency.

Thanks, Jim. Happy Holidays and GO GREEN!
