Biodiversity Assistant
Marine Program
Center for Biodiversity and Conservation

The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation of the American Museum 
of Natural History (AMNH) seeks a person with training and experience 
in marine biology and conservation.  The Biodiversity Assistant will 
assist with the development and implementation of the Center's marine 
research and conservation projects, currently focusing on the Bahamas 
and spanning the areas of systematics, benthic habitat mapping, and 
integrated biophysical-socioeconomic analysis in support of marine 
reserve design.  The position is for one year with the possibility of 
annual renewals.

Those with interest and experience in integrating science and policy, 
especially with respect to Caribbean marine conservation, are 
particularly encouraged to apply.

Candidates must (1) have a Masters degree or a B.A./B.S. with at 
least 1 year of experience in one or more relevant marine fields: 
conservation biology, ecology, evolutionary biology, systematics, 
fisheries, cultural anthropology, biology-related remote sensing, or 
geography/GIS; (2) be able to work well on multiple projects, both 
independently and collaboratively with other investigators, and in 
both field and laboratory settings; and (3) communicate well in 
writing and orally.  Further experience with proposal, report, and 
manuscript writing, budget management, and community outreach & 
informal environmental education will be important assets as well.

Responsibilities and Duties
Principle program tasks will include a mix of expedition planning and 
field work (including SCUBA and small boat operation), specimen 
management, laboratory analyses (both morphological and molecular), 
participation in various outreach efforts, report and manuscript 
co-authorship, and budget management (note that the specific mix of 
these activities will vary across seasons and years).  In addition, 
the Biodiversity Assistant will collaboratively assist with other 
Center events and initiatives as needed.

Applications, including a current curriculum vitae, a narrative 
statement of experience and program interests, and the names and
