Are you interested in a different type of international trip?  Join a team of researchers, faculty, and students to Israel to be part of a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to better understand how knowledge in craniofacial development can inform us about archaeology and anthropology.  The research team has published preliminary findings in Nature (28 January 2015) that has garnered interest around the world.  Additional information can be gleaned from the project Facebook page (manotcaveproject).

Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine is a partner in this dig and is organizing two volunteer student groups to assist in the research in the month of July.  The costs for participation are $1,000 plus travel costs if the student wants to stay for 2 weeks or $1,500 plus travel for 3 weeks.  Meals and lodging are included.  DEADLINE: April 1, 2017.
