We seek for a curator for Ichthyology at the Leibniz Institute for Biodiversity at the Museum of Nature in Hamburg. 

The Leibniz Institute for the Analysis of Biodiversity Change (LIB) is one of the large, globally connected research museums of the Leibniz Association. In addition to excellent research on biodiversity and its change, we are advancing the development of our extensive scientific collections with an international team and state-of-the-art technology. With our exhibition, knowledge transfer and communication work at our exhibition venues Museum Koenig Bonn and Museum der Natur Hamburg, we want to spread enthusiasm for nature and contribute with our research topics to current socio-political discussions on species loss, climate change and the protection of ecosystems. The construction of an integrated natural history museum is being planned for the Hamburg location; the research infrastructure at the Bonn location is currently being significantly expanded.

The LIB is looking for a scientist for a position as Curator Ichthyology (m/f/d) at LIB Hamburg starting as soon as possible, representing research at an internationally competitive level. The successful candidate will bridge the gap between the fish collection and ichthyological research on drivers of biodiversity change in space and time. The candidate's scientific expertise should be evident in collection-based ichthyological research and must cover at least one of the following fields:
- fish morphology
- population and/or community ecology of fishes
- evolutionary ecology and/or systematics of fishes

We expect the candidate to:
  • hold a PhD in zoology or related areas, preferred with focus on ichthyology 
  • be a designated expert in fish taxonomy with profound species knowledge of extant fishes 
  • have working experience with natural history collections, especially fishes 
  • demonstrate a vision of further developing the fish collection 
  • have a strong publication record, with a vision for future research 
  • actively develop a working group
  • acquire substantial third-party funding 
  • promote LIB-internal teamwork and external collaborations.
The successful candidate 
  • will function within the Centre for Taxonomy and Morphology in Hamburg, and will play a strong role in advancing the LIB's reputation as a preeminent institution for the study of biodiversity change on a global scale 
  • will be tasked with assuming full curatorial responsibility for the ichthyological collection housed by LIB Hamburg 
  • will be responsible for a wide range of duties such as collection management, provision of scientific services, expansion and digitization of the collection, and contributions to outreach activities.
