Curator in Earth and Planetary Science, American Museum of Natural History
            The Division of Physical Sciences of American Museum of Natural History seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant curator in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences.  We seek candidates who will bring petrological and geochemical methods to bear on problems related to planetary evolution.  For example, candidates might integrate field, analytical, and theoretical studies of the rock record to provide insights into fundamental aspects of climate, environmental, and biogeochemical variability through time.  The successful candidate will have demonstrated scientific creativity and the potential to build and sustain an innovative research program.  They will be expected to take advantage of resources available at AMNH, which include world-class geological collections; a wide range of optical, electron beam, and x-ray analytical tools; experimental laboratories; LA-ICPMS facilities shared with Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University; and a program supporting scientific expeditions.  They will also oversee and expand the AMNH petrology collection. We welcome an intention and ability to collaborate with colleagues within AMNH and the regional academic community, including Columbia University and The Graduate Center of CUNY, and to engage in AMNH's MA in Teaching of Earth Science and other education initiatives. Applications should include a cover letter; CV; research statement; statement addressing teaching, exhibition, and public outreach; PDFs of up to 5 publications; and three letters of reference.  All materials should be submitted by December 16, 2016 to EPSsearch at amnh.org<mailto:EPSsearch at amnh.org>. Inquiries about the position should be directed to Denton Ebel (debel at amnh.org<mailto:debel at amnh.org>).
