Freshwater Invertebrate sorting volunteer for People, Ponds and Water – Oxford

The People, Ponds and Water project is collecting a huge amount of valuable data from freshwater surveys through the PondNet section of the project. Currently we have a selection of freshwater invertebrate samples that require sorting so we can analyse the data collected. This would make a great opportunity for a student or someone looking to increase their Freshwater Invertebrate identification skills to join us for a day or 2 (or more) a week over the summer, and help us sort through these samples. You will need to have Freshwater Invertebrate ID skills already, ideally to species level, supervision and guidance will be provided.

If you are interested in this role please send a covering letter with your CV to Jo Fever
