Systematic Zoologist

The Field Museum is seeking an outstanding systematic zoologist to
fill a career-track appointment in the Department of Zoology at
the level of Assistant Curator.  Candidates pursuing innovative,
specimen-based research in systematic biology will be considered.
Among the areas of interest are the following: (a) molecular
systematics, with a focus on integrating population genetics and/or
molecular mechanisms with systematics; (b) developmental biology,
including the use of tissue culture and histology as a means of
addressing developmental and phylogenetic questions; (c) phylogenetic
research that investigates questions in population or community
ecology; or (d) systematics based on multiple data sets (molecular,
morphological, behavioral) or making important contributions in
a second field such as conservation, theoretical systematics, or
biogeography.  The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. and a
proven record of scientific achievement. In addition to research,
responsibilities include curation of collections and participation
in public exhibit and education programs.  The potential exists
for participation in graduate and undergraduate training at local
universities. The Zoology Department is part of the Museum's
Center for Evolutionary and Environmental Biology which also
includes the Departments of Botany and Geology.
