Hi Tweets.

Anyone interested in "feather forensics," the skill of identifying avian
victims of airplane strikes (and hungry "Floridian" Burmese Pythons) by
analyzing the structure of recovered feathers.

There is one woman (Carla Dove, no joke) with this expertise in the nation
at the Smithsonian, and she hasn't found anyone to take the reins once she
retires.

Just heard about it on NPR:

Send her your application!
