We are leading an ambitious project to rehabilitate the Herbarium

You will implement a far-reaching programme of staff and student
training in herbarium management, plant exploration and research
aimed at significantly enhancing the role of the University in
biodiversity research and conservation. Your own research will be
centred around the preparation of a field guide to the flowering plant
families of New Guinea. This position presents an exciting
