The Paleontological Research Institution (PRI) invites applications from graduate students and post-doctoral researchers for the 2010 John W. Wells Grants-in-Aid of Research Program to support collections-based research in any field of paleontology. The program awards grants of up to $500 to visit PRI's collections. PRI houses one of the largest collections of invertebrate fossils in North America, with particular strengths in Cenozoic mollusks from the Western
Hemisphere and marine invertebrates of the northeastern U.S., especially the Devonian of central New York. PRI's Type and Figured collection can be searched online

The application deadline is February 15th, 2010. Applications should include a brief (1-page) description of the research project, a budget justification and a letter of recommendation. For further information about the grant application or PRI's collections, please contact: Dr. Gregory P. Dietl, Director of Collections, Paleontological Research Institution.
