The Museum of Paleontology, University of California, Berkeley, seeks
candidates for a full-time, 11-month Museum Scientist with knowledge of 
the chief groups of fossil protists, including foraminifera, radiolaria,

desirable.

Duties consist of curation of microfossils, management of the microfossil
collection and data, interactions with faculty, students, and visiting
researchers, consultation on exhibits and public outreach, and up to 20%
research on the paleobiology, evolution or systematics of foraminifera.

UCMP has the 2nd largest collection of fossils (microfossils, 
invertebrates,
plants, and vertebrates) in North America, including millions of microfossil
types, single mount slides, assemblage slides, and bulk and processed
samples in need of constant curation. The abilities to organize collections
