to use the collections optimally. The candidate is also expected to strategically 
collect underrepresented taxa in order to improve the value of the herbarium. 
Research time will be provided, and the candidate is expected to actively apply for 
external grants for his/her own research. Working tasks are decided in 
consultation with the curator of the herbarium and the Head of the department.
