Dear colleagues,

this could be of interest to some of you:

The Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum Alexander 
Koenig (ZFMK), Bonn (http://www.zfmk.de), seeks 
to fill the position of a researcher in the 
Department of Arthropods (succession of Dr. M. 
Schmitt). We anticipate that funds will be 
available by December 2009. We look for a PhD 
scientist who has his/her focus on systematics of 
insects and has a substantial publication record 
in taxonomic, phylogenetic and other 
biosystematic research. We expect him/her to work 
in these fields from a sound theoretical basis 
and to be able to apply an array of appropriate 
modern methods. He/she should be able to combine 
collection-based work with modern phylogenetic 
and/or ecological approaches. We also expect 
him/her to integrate into ongoing research 
projects and teaching programmes of the 
University of Bonn and to be successful in acquiring external funding.

The successful candidate will be active in 
research projects and as curator will have the 
responsibility for the substantial collections of 
Coleoptera housed in the ZFMK. He/she will also 
be involved in the self-administration of the 
institute and eventually will head the arthropod department.

Initially, the successful candidate can be 
employed for a period of five years. Pending on 
his/her performance during this time, the 
candidate may obtain subsequent tenure. According 
to German law, applications by women and by 
disabled scientists will be given priority in 
case of superior or equal qualification. 
Depending on occupational qualification and 
experience salary corresponds to grade TV-L/13 - 
15 in the German Public Service scheme.

ZFMK is a fellow institute of the 
"Wissenschaftsgemeinschaft Gottfried Wilhelm 
Leibniz" (WGL: = Science Community G.W. Leibniz) 
and works in close cooperation with the 
University of Bonn. It holds internationally 
important scientific collections, libraries, a 
scanning electron microscope, and bioacoustic, 
histological and molecular laboratories.

Interested applicants should send a CV, a 
complete publication record, a comment on 
teaching experience and research funding, 
certificates for university degrees and selected 
publications in hard copy to the following address:

Prof. Dr. J.W. W├Ągele, Director, Zoologisches 
Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig, Adenauerallee 
160, D-53113 Bonn, Germany, by September 15.
