Re: Local News Story on Matthew Carrano
Actually, the joke about it being the "brontosaurus of paleontology jobs" and
"it's the job that was mistaken for a previously known and described job"
isn't far from the truth. The actual _Tyrannosaurus rex_ version of this job
was announced about a year before the current version but then was withdrawn
and revised. The original job was meant to attract the very top echelon in
paleontology and had a much higher salary and somewhat different duties.
Just because we can, here, from Vrtpaleo, is the announcement for the job
that Matt Carrano will fill.
