Curator, Professor, and Director of Comparative Biology Initiative American Museum of Natural History
The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York invites applications and nominations for an outstanding scholar at the Full Curator & Full Professor level with internationally-recognized research and leadership credentials, and demonstrated, ongoing high-impact research productivity and grantsmanship, to provide innovative leadership for a new museum-wide initiative in comparative biology. This initiative will incorporate the work of multiple investigators at the Museum and at collaborating institutions in genomics and phenomics (large-scale phenotypic analysis), aimed at understanding the evolution and relationships of organisms in ways that clarify and illuminate the architecture of life. The successful candidate for this position should show experience and interest in managing large–scale, interdisciplinary, collaborative, multi-institutional projects and is expected to qualify for and be appointed as a tenured full curator in either the Division of Invertebrate Zoology or Vertebrate Zoology, and as a full professor in the Richard Gilder Graduate School at the AMNH. We seek a creative, active, broad-based researcher and dynamic academic leader who interacts well with others and who will utilize the extensive resources the Museum has to offer in the way of collections, research instrumentation and laboratories, teaching and mentoring, exhibition, and public education.
SALARY RANGE: $105,211.00 to $163,957.00 / Per Year

The Natural History Museum (NHM) is seeking to recruit a number of ‘Research Leaders’ into its staff to strengthen its capacity in Earth and Life Sciences.
The NHM is one of the world’s great natural history museums, combining excellence in scientific discovery; scientific collections and infrastructure; and science communication. Its scientific mission is to use its expertise and collections to tackle questions of broad significance to science and society.
The successful applicants will be recognised leaders in their fields of research, having strong records of publication in leading international journals and proven records of winning external funding to support their research programme or, in the case of early career applicants, the potential to achieve such a research profile in the near future. They will also have an interest in communicating science to a broad audience and in taking full advantage of the opportunities offered by the NHM.
We are prepared to be flexible with respect to appointment level, starting salary and starting date, depending on track-record, experience and circumstances.
For a full role specification and to apply online, please visit the Natural History Museum website at www.nhm.ac.uk/jobs (REF: NHM/RSL/GS)
Closing date: 15 February, 2013
Informal enquiries may be made to Professors Andy Fleet (Head of Department of Earth Sciences, email@example.com), Phil Rainbow (Head of Department of Life Sciences, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ian Owens (Director of Science, email@example.com).
The selected student will be mentored by Drs. Aaron Smith, Nico Franz, and Quentin Wheeler, and will concentrate on revising the Eleodes subgenera Promus and Tricheleodes using comparative morphological and molecular information. Additional tasks will include contributions to an emerging Coleoptera Anatomy Ontology, field work, and outreach. Academic excellence and a strong background in insect systematics are highly desirable.
Interested candidates should contact Nico Franz immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief statement of their interests and qualifications.
The Franz Lab at Arizona State University (http://franz.lab.asu.edu/) has an opening for a postdoc in insect systematics and biogeography. For further details see http://sols.asu.edu/employment/pdfs/f12_insectsys_postdoc.pdf. Applications should be submitted by December 01, 2012. Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact email@example.com.
The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Brown University seeks to fill an open-rank faculty position in Plant Evolutionary Biology. We will consider outstanding candidates from all areas of evolutionary biology, but especially encourage applications from researchers working on ecological adaptation and plant-environment interactions, employing a macro-evolutionary, comparative perspective. The Department is a highly interactive, diverse group of faculty with numerous collaborations with affiliated departments and research centers at Brown. We are seeking candidates whose research is naturally interdisciplinary and who can make connections with colleagues in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, the Center for Computational Molecular Biology, the Environmental Change Initiative, and the Ecosystems and Josephine Bay Paul Centers at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA.
The Department of Botany of the Smithsonian Institution
The School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University invites applications for a Biodiversity Informatician. This is an academic, non-tenure track faculty research associate appointment.
Arizona State University is a dynamic, progressive university dedicated to interdisciplinary collaborations, to rethinking university education, and to integrating excellence in both research and teaching. The School of Life Sciences (SOLS) at Arizona State University's Tempe campus is committed to strengthening its impact in the fields of biodiversity informatics research and virtual collections management. SOLS maintains organismal collections totaling more than 1.5 million preserved specimens, and has played an instrumental role in creating the Southwest Environmental Information Network (SEINet) which serves more than 2 million records and 100,000 images on-line.
The College of Biological Sciences at the University of Minnesota announces up to two tenure-track positions in fungal biology at the assistant professor or associate professor level. The position(s) will complement a faculty cluster focused on plant and fungal evolution. Research that facilitates collaborations in evolutionary genomics, phylogenetic systematics, evolutionary ecology, molecular biology or cellular biology of fungi is of special interest. We welcome applicants working in any area of fungal biology and are particularly interested in those whose research explores the interface between organismal and genetic approaches to the study of evolutionary processes.
