We (Smithsonian, National Museum of Natural History) are searching for 2 outstanding invertebrate zoologists. Applicants are expected to have a question-driven research program focused on evolutionary, biodiversity, ecological, or conservation approaches as well as expertise in at least one invertebrate group (sorry insects and chelicerates are excluded). Any taxonomic group specialty will be considered. Positions are primarily research positions, making them comparable to typical academic positions with collections administration duties instead of teaching. Applicants must be able to demonstrate potential for modern and historical collections-based research. The collections are an amazing resource.
You must be a US citizen to apply.
Applications will be accepted until Jan. 7th. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
For more information and to apply, see the job ad (19A-JW-304220-DEU-NMNH) here https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/516234600. For further information or questions, contact the search committee chair, Chris Meyer (meyerc from si.edu<mailto:meyerc from si.edu>) .
