The Academy of Natural Sciences invites applications for a curatorial position in malacology, at any rank. This curator will have responsibilities in the malacological or invertebrate paleontological collections of the Academy, or both, and potentially in the general invertebrate collection. The successful candidate will have or be expected to establish an internationally recognized program of externally funded, collection-based research on the systematics and evolution of Recent or fossil Mollusca. Where possible, this person will seek opportunities for collaborative research with other curators in the Biodiversity Group, and with fellow scientists in the Academy's environmental centers. In addition to research, other, equally important, duties include curatorial oversight of relevant collections and participation in public education, museum programs, donor cultivation, and service to professional organizations.

Qualifications: Ph.D. in an appropriate field; research experience in systematics and evolution of Mollusca.

Target starting date: January 2001

To apply: By 31 July 2000, send curriculum vitae, names and contact information for three referees, and a cover letter that describes your research program, curatorial experience, and philosophy of public education on systematics and environmental issues, to
