Job Open:  Museum Scientist - UCMP Invertebrate Collections

The University of California Museum of Paleontology has been awarded 
a two-year grant from the NSF (CSBR: Natural History Collections) to 
complete the rehabilitation of the orphaned Menlo Park USGS fossil 
invertebrate collection that is now housed in UCMP's off-site 
collections facility.  We are seeking a Museum Scientist to serve as 
the project coordinator for this grant.  The successful candidate, 
under direction of the Assistant Director for Collections and 
Research and the UCMP collections staff, will re-organize and 
re-house the collection into new trays and museum cabinets, conserve 
and complete data entry for the fossils, and organize the diverse 
contextual records, e.g., maps, field notes, photographs, and 
correspondence that accompany the specimens.  The Museum Scientist 
will also digitally image and document the specimens and labels.  The 
grant provides support for graduate and undergraduate students to 
assist in the work, which the Museum Scientist will train and lead.

Please contact Dr Mark Goodwin (mark at for further information.
