Work With an Invert! - Marine Inverts

Alas, I will still be PhDless by June 2008...


The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) is seeking a
scientist to fill a tenure track position in the field of invertebrate
systematics, with emphasis on living marine taxa, beginning July 2008.
The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of assistant
curator with salary commensurate with experience and accomplishment.
Candidates will be expected to develop an externally funded research
program in systematics and/or phylogenetics of invertebrates including
field work and the use of diverse character systems (such as
development) and ability to oversee relevant segments of museum
collections and staff. Areas of taxon research focus can include any
metazoan marine invertebrate group. Applicants must have a strong
commitment to the use and continued development of museum collections as
a complement to their research programs.

Application materials should include: curriculum vitae,
statement of research interests and goals, teaching statement for
graduate instruction in the AMNH Richard Gilder Graduate School, and
copies of publications relevant to the application, and names and
contact information of at least three individuals able to comment on the
capabilities of the candidate. The deadline for submission of
application materials is December 14, 2007. Interviews will be
conducted by early 2008 in conformance with AMNH recruitment and
conflict of interest policies. Materials should be sent to Chair, Marine
Invertebrate Search, Division of Invertebrate Zoology, The American
Museum of Natural History, New York, NY 10024. Alternatively
