POSITION AVAILABLE - Plant Molecular Systematist
Organisation: CSIRO
Salary: AU $92K to AU $100K plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Location:  Australian Tropical Herbarium, Cairns, Australia
Tenure: indefinite (i.e. continuing, not fixed term)
Applications close: 30 September 2015

An exciting opportunity exists for an outstanding molecular systematist with a special interest in tropical plants and genomics to make a substantial contribution to the understanding of the Australian, and more broadly, the worldwide flora. The position is based at the Australian Tropical Herbarium in Cairns. The appointee will be expected to use molecular (including genomic) data in research on the systematics and evolutionary biology of tropical Australian plants and have research strengths in phylogenetics, systematics and biogeography and ideally with a taxon focus within the tropical flora. The appointee is also expected to interact more broadly with colleagues in the Centre for Australian National Biodiversity Research (CANBR) in Canberra and James Cook University in Cairns to more fully integrate molecular data analyses into ongoing research projects.

The Australian Tropical Herbarium (ATH) is a Joint Venture between CSIRO, the State of Queensland acting through the Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation (DSITI), James Cook University (JCU) and the Australian National Botanic Garden (ANBG). As part of an integrated build in national capability in molecular systematics and evolutionary research we are seeking to appoint an early to mid-career scientist with interests in undertaking research on the tropical Australian flora in the areas of molecular systematics, evolutionary genomics and phylogeography. A grounding in collections-based science is seen as essential to this research.
