The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation of the American Museum of
Natural History (AMNH), seeks a Program Officer with training and
experience in conservation biology  and biodiversity to complement the
extensive research strengths of the Museum in systematics.  The Program
Officer will build a strong collaborative research  program with AMNH
curators and external environmental organizations.

Candidates must have the Ph.D. or MS degree in a biodiversity-related
science and should have a deep understanding of conservation biology,
systematic biology and  recognition in research related to these fields.
Applicants must have excellent writing and oral communication skills and a
demonstrated ability to raise funds for research.  Those with interest and
experience in integrating science and policy, knowledge of  environmental
organizations, and leadership of projects involving diverse collaborators
are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Program Officer, together with the Center Director and AMNH curators,
will  plan and coordinate a national and international program of
biodiversity research.   In addition, the successful candidate will be
expected to provide scientific support for and assist in policy and
education projects of the Center.  Depending on candidate qualifications, a
portion of the Program Officer's time may be devoted to research.

The American Museum of Natural History has for 125 years promoted an
understanding and appreciation of the natural world.  It houses the largest
natural history library in the western hemisphere as well as a collection
of over 30 million specimens and artifacts.  The institution sponsors over
200 curators, scientific support staff, doctoral students, and postdoctoral
fellows, most of whom conduct research in biodiversity.
