PCP-PIRE is currently accepting applications for its Spring 2015 cohort of field interns. The goal of the PCP-PIRE field internship program is to expose students to geoscience field and research techniques in an international setting as we make new fossil discoveries and refine the stratigraphy of the Panama Canal Basin. Interns are also encouraged to explore the culture and natural history of Panama and expand their outreach abilities in conveying the importance of geology and paleontology to the public.
