The University of Colorado Museum of Natural History seeks applications for a dynamic Curator of Entomology with an outstanding track record of specimen-based and interdisciplinary research for a joint, tenure-track appointment as Curator of Entomology and Assistant Professor. Although Assistant Professor is the anticipated hiring rank, the Associate Professor rank may be considered based on experience and qualifications. The position is rostered in the Museum, with tenure home in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology or another academic department at CU relevant to the ecology and evolution of insects. Teaching responsibilities will be split between the tenure home department and the Museum & Field Studies Graduate Program in the Museum. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will have research expertise in one or more areas including (but not limited to) insect comparative genomics, cutting-edge systematics, macroevolution, responses to environmental change, and/or ecophysiology. Strong preference will be given to candidates that demonstrate effective, large team cross-disciplinary projects, as evidenced by publications, grants and productive collaborations/partnerships. This research program will build on the Museum’s collections and unique strengths in the study of organismal responses to environmental change through time. The successful candidate will take a leadership role in advancing the Museum’s entomology collection, will engage with undergraduate and graduate students, and will demonstrate genuine interest in contributing to the Museum & Field Studies Masters and Professional Certificate Program. The Entomology Section houses over 1.4 million specimens, with strengths in Hymenoptera, Lepidoptera, Orthoptera, Hemiptera, and Coleoptera.
