Dear Sir or Madam,
I have just passed a second year Master degree (five years after high school diploma) in Preservation and Restoration of the Biodiversity (CRB) in Metz (Lorraine, France). Being deeply interested in botany (several training courses in France and Italy in botanic and phytosociology), I would like to complete my professional skills with a training in bryology. I have already notions but I have to find an organism with specialists if I really want to make progress. In France, bryology science is less dynamic that in your country and it is difficult to me to find a formation. I am in search of a professional training period with one or several specialists during which I'll can learn about mosses and contribute to a scientific study. I shall be available from December 2010 for a period between one week and 6 months.
On the other hand, my scientific vocation as well as my naturalist's personal experiences allowed me to acquire knowledge through useful fields such as organism biology, dynamics of the populations, ecosystems physico-chemistry… These experiences are completed by notions of cartography SIG (mapinfo®, arcgis), by descriptive and analytical statistics (statbox, R) and environmental legislation as well as ecosystems management preservation.
If you need any further details, please let me know. I can send you a CV and motivation letter. I thank you in advance to considering my request.
Otherwise, If you know any persons or organisms with whom my project could be feasible or another possibilily, I would be very interested.
