Job Title:     Assistant Curator of Amphibians and Reptiles
Organisation:     Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh
Salary:    
Type:     Full-Time Position
Location:     Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Closing Date:     Tuesday, February 7th, 2017
Job Ref No:     1311
 
Job Description:
The Carnegie Museum of Natural History is seeking an assistant curator. The position’s primary responsibilities include original scientific research involving the biology of amphibians and reptiles in such areas as systematics, evolutionary biology, ecology, conservation biology, especially but not limited to work involving consequences of anthropogenic change. The curator provides strategic planning for the museum’s world class collection of amphibians and reptiles, and is responsible for leadership in the care, maintenance and improvement of the collection. Curators are expected to have strongly developed skills in science communication, both to sophisticated (i.e. other scientists, reached through major peer-reviewed journals, university seminars and presentations at professional meetings) and general (e.g. museum visitors, primary and secondary school students, citizen science groups) audiences. The successful candidate must have a record of success in grantsmanship. While the majority of the curator’s time is expected to be focused on research and collections, we seek a curator who will also enthusiastically participate in the museum’s educational programs, exhibitions, and other efforts of public engagement.
Required Skills:
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in some aspect of amphibian and reptilian biology, postdoctoral training strongly preferred, and a strong record in grants, scientific publications, and science communication. The appointment is expected to be at the level of Assistant Curator, although exceptional candidates at more senior levels may be considered.

KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, AND ABILITIES:
The curator must be an active scientist knowledgeable in amphibian and reptilian biology, with expertise in systematics, evolutionary biology, or in conservation biology. Knowledge of current theories and methods in systematic and evolutionary biology, and in conservation biology, and a broad, in-depth knowledge of herpetology is essential. Skills must include (although not limited to) morphological, molecular or combined approaches to address major problems in biology, sophisticated analytical and data management skills, and demonstrated skill at either field-oriented research and/or exploration, or laboratory research. The curator must be knowledgeable in the current best practices in museum collection management.

The curator must have the capability to conceptualize and develop field studies, collection-based or laboratory research, and must be capable of obtaining external grants for research. It is desirable that the curator develop and maintain a highly visible research profile in the biological scientific community.
 
Application Instructions:
To apply, a letter of application, CV, contact information for three references, statement of research, and statement of curatorial philosophy (including the curator’s role in broader museum efforts) should be emailed to halea@carnegiemnh.org. Review of applications will begin February 1, 2017.

The following PA Act 153 clearances, or proof of application of clearances, are required prior to beginning employment and as a condition of continued employment:
• Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance
• Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check
• FBI Fingerprint Criminal Background Check

Obtaining the required clearances is part of the orientation process. However, if you would like more information, please visit http://www.dhs.state.pa.us/findaform/childabusehistoryclearanceforms/index.htm
