Info intended for the list received from Pat Hutchings, with (immediate below) 
some background garnered elsewhere.

Two malacologists and an arachnologist retired (from Australian Museum) in the 
last year, although we can expect that anyone who can do research in the 
Museum's collection strengths will be considered (other than in insects). In 
this broad area, we currently have two active carcinologists, one polychaete 
specialist, one centipede specialist, one invertebrate molecular biologist.  

Previous experience indicates that the successful candidates will enter the
staff as Scientific Officers, with the opportunity to upgrade their position
after a year to the Research Scientist series after being reviewed by a state
scientific review board.

The following Research Positions at the Australian Museum will be
advertised in

AM Web - Wednesday 15 March 2006
