River Life Program Seeks Student Workers for Spring Semester

The River Life program is looking for up to six student workers during the spring 2016 semester to prepare and deliver presentations on the existing ecological and hydrological conditions of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. Students will work with scientists who are conducting the survey and analysis of scientific data, will conduct independent research as needed, and will prepare and present their findings in venues such as neighborhood/community forums, school groups, and other public settings. The communication part of the project is led by Pat Nunnally of the River Life program, an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Minnesota with over 20 years experience working with Mississippi River community groups. The project is expected to require approximately 150 hours of work; pay is $10/hour. Students will be hired and paid through regular U of M student hiring processes.
