         Euro+Med PlantBase

Plant Taxonomist and Project Leader required in Reading

We seek an accomplished plant taxonomist, skilled in floristics, to work as
part of a
team on the floras of Europe and the Mediterranean. The post will be in the
Euro+Med PlantBase Secretariat (part of the Centre for Plant Diversity and
Systematics) at the School of Plant Sciences in The University of Reading. The
post is for up to two and a half years, under an E.U. contract, on the
research assistant scale.

This challenging position has become vacant on the preferment of the
current holder Dr Mark Carine to a post at the Natural History Museum in
London. It involves leading the taxonomic effort in the Euro+Med PlantBase
Secretariat, with others in the team assisting with database management and
taxonomic editing. The post involves work on floristic treatments and
checklists for inclusion in an on-line database which will build on from
Flora Europaea and MedChecklist. The holder of the post will have
experience as a plant taxonomist, knowledge of the European flora, plus
project management and communication skills. The Co-ordinating Centre at
Reading leads ten other European Centres in this EU RTD Project, and
involves working with an extensive network of experts throughout the
Euro-Mediterranean region. The post will involve extensive travel within
the region. Computer literacy is required and appropriate language skills
will be an advantage.
