Two new positions at The Natural History Museum, London

Department of Botany
A major international centre for collections-focused systematics research,
the Natural History Museum is at the forefront of modern biodiversity

Research Phycologist
£25,000 - £31,315 per annum
We require an experienced Phycologist to undertake and develop a new
research programme, preferably focusing on the systematics, biogeography
and evolution of marine macro-algae.

This is a research position. The Department holds significant collections in
all groups of algae and you will be expected to orient your research to the
relevant collection. You should possess a PhD, or have equivalent
experience, in an area dealing with phycological systematics. Relevant
publications and evidence of a developing research programme are desirable.

Molecular Plant Systematist
£20,122 - £24,000 per annum
We also require an experienced molecular plant biologist for a new position
in the Department. This combined technical and research position will
underpin both our new evolutionary-developmental genetics programme and
several molecular phylogenetics projects that span a taxonomic range from
diatoms to orchids.

You should possess a BSc in biology, molecular biology or genetics, ideally
with a postgraduate degree encompassing molecular systematics or
developmental genetics. Strong laboratory, data-analysis and writing skills,
relevant publications, and a willingness to instruct both other researchers
and the public in a collaborative environment are also desirable.

For informal enquiries, please contact Prof. Richard Bateman, Head of
Botany on +44(0) 20 7942 5282 or e-mail: R.Bateman at
