Subject: job opportunity for an invertebrate systematist

Curator, Invertebrate Zoology Full-Time Heritage Resources Officer R30 Victoria $67,177.34 - $76,911.00

Opportunity:

The Royal British Columbia Museum Corporation is the only organization in the
world dedicated specifically to the preservation of, and education about, the
human and natural history of British Columbia. Its mandate is to fulfill the
Government's responsibilities for public trusteeship of the Provincial
collections and exhibits. The collection is preserved for existing and future
generations of British Columbians.

The Natural History Section of the Collections, Research and Access Branch has
an excellent opportunity for a dynamic and creative person with a desire to
share the Invertebrate Zoology collection with the world! Dividing their time
between research, collection development and public programming, the successful
applicant will demonstrate expertise in one taxonomic group of invertebrates
relevant to British Columbia while having a good knowledge of other invertebrate
groups for specimen identification and collection development purposes. The
Curator will plan and participate in public programming through exhibit
planning, popular writing and public speaking. As a key member of a team, the
successful candidate will serve on a variety of committees within and outside
the museum, and be a strong communicator. The Curator will be responsible for
recruiting, training and directing the day-to-day activities of a vibrant group
of volunteers, research associates, co-op students and contractors.

The ideal candidate will have a Doctorate degree in science relating to
Invertebrate Zoology with an emphasis on taxonomy or systematics. In addition to
being qualified for cross-appointments in universities, you will have practical
experience in specimen identification. You must demonstrate experience in
planning, completing and publishing scientific research. While experience
working in a museum setting is not mandatory, it is considered an asset. As a
member of an organization responsible for sharing the wonders of the museum, the
successful candidate will be comfortable delivering presentations and providing
information, identifications and expertise relating to Invertebrate Zoology and
the museum across a wide diversity of audiences including government agencies,
the media, the scientific and education community and the general public.

The taxonomic strengths of the existing RBCM invertebrate collection are:
echinoderms, mollusks, polychaetes, sponges, decapods and land snails. The
potential for regional partnerships between the museum and government or
universities on the deep sea or other areas of investigation is significant and
encouraged.
