Work Study Opportunity - Geography Website

As some of you might have seen, the Geog Dept website has undergone a major overhaul recently. As part of our work to maintain this initial burst of upgrading, the Dept is going to hire a Work Study student to work alongside me as an RA contining to develop the site further, initially in the winter semester. It would be great to have a geogrphy student involved with this. Therefore if you are eligible for Work Study, please consider this as a potential RA position. The Work Study official advertisement will be posted in early January I hope, for that semester. But I've pasted the general blurb below. Pay details etc will be on the official site. It will be advertised as a research position (unless they change the category themselves...)

Job opportunity for graduating geography students

the distribution industry. Later projects would include data collection
