Due to some technical glitches, the original ad for this position ran in Science very close to the advertised 'closing date', because of this, they are still seeking additional applicants.  I hope posting here might get the advertisement seen by some more morphology/taxonomy oriented people. Any questions about the job should be addressed to Quentin Wheeler q.wheeler at
