maintenance of catalogues, studies of biology, phylogeny,
biogeography and evolution of Australian and related faunas using
morphological and molecular approaches and using modern
information technology. You will be expected to participate in
management, training, supervision of students, field surveys,
identification and advice activities.

These positions will be based at the CSIRO Entomology
laboratories in Canberra.
