The Field Museum invites applications for an Entomologist position at the Assistant or Associate Curator rank. The Field Museum’s Life Sciences Section has a record of scientific excellence in collections-based research.  The Field Museum's Entomological collections are global in scope and taxonomically extensive. We seek candidates with a background in insect pollinators or pollination biology that have experience in, or an interest to develop, the integration of this discipline with evolutionary biology, comparative morphology, biogeography, phylogenetics, developmental or molecular biology, or other related fields. A record of collections-based research is desirable.  

In addition to developing an externally funded research program, responsibilities will include curation of collections, administration, and participation in public exhibit, education, and conservation programs. Close relationships with local universities provide opportunities for participation in graduate and undergraduate training. A Ph.D. in a relevant discipline must be held by the start of employment.  This is a term-renewable position.
