Associate Curator of Mineralogy

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is Canada's pre-eminent international museum and houses some of Canada's most important collections in both Natural History and World Cultures. The department houses Canada's largest mineral and gem collections, an important meteorite collection, and a comprehensive petrology collection.

The ROM currently invites applications for the position of an entry-level Associate Curator of Mineralogy to conduct field and collections-related research.

The successful applicant will be expected to: provide dynamic leadership for the Earth Sciences staff, develop a program of externally funded scholarly research and publications; curate and continue building the disciplinary collection of minerals, and participate in the development and rotation of new permanent galleries, travelling exhibitions and other public programming.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a Ph.D. in mineralogy, and be well versed in the geological sciences; a record of scholarly publication in peer-reviewed journals, be qualified for cross-appointment to the University of Toronto and be eligible for NSERC funding in support of research (i.e. proven record of successful grant applications). Experience in a museum or equivalent environment is preferable.

Salary: Salary and years in rank are commensurate with experience, as stipulated in the Collective Agreement between the Royal Ontario Museum and ROM Curatorial Association.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Applications will be accepted until June 30, 2006. Applicants should provide a curriculum vitae, a summary of their research, an outline of their proposed research and should arrange to have three confidential letters of recommendation sent on their behalf to:
