Research opportunity!

Below is a short description of what the project entails.   Interested students can contact me or Nicole Misarti (nmisarti@alaska.edu) for more information. 
“This student would help to identify Pacific cod bone from archaeological sites. They would be sifting through bags that might contain many species and separating out P cod. Specifically they will be identifying premaxillas, vomers, and atlases. Depending on the student’s interest (and of course how well things are working out as far as them being student employees) there would be the potential for that student to continue working with the fish in my isogeochem lab. Essentially they would be learning from Bevyn and I how to extract collagen from fish bone.”
