morphological, developmental, and biodiversity informatics approaches
in the context of phylogeny and global environmental change. Candidates
should have a strong commitment to the curation, use and development of
museum collections as a complement to their research and to participation
in the Academy's public engagement programs. Relationships with local
universities provide opportunities to participate in graduate and
undergraduate teaching and training. Hires may be made at any level.
