Associate Curator, Curator, or Senior Curator of Plants
ROM seeks an innovative and collaborative Curator to build, interpret, and share the Museum’s plants collection and to be an engaging spokesperson for the importance of green plants, including vascular plants, pteridophytes, bryophytes, and algae. The Curator of Plants will initiate and develop transdisciplinary exhibitions and public programs, collaborate with community groups and stakeholders, and demonstrate exceptional leadership, listening, and communication skills. Recognizing multiple voices and types of authority, the position will encourage and educate the public at all levels of interest, as well as train the next generation of plant biologists. The Curator will conduct conceptually driven, collection-based research in botanical systematics, ecology, and evolution in the context of plant conservation and plants’ role in sustainability and human society. Candidates’ collection-based research program will integrate into the highly collaborative and interdisciplinary research of ROM’s Department of Natural History and complement the Museum’s art and cultural disciplines.
The successful candidate will be a high-level, practicing scientist with a graduate degree, who has achievements in the field, has published, embarked on a successful career, and is now interested in having a more public-facing role. There may be opportunities for university cross-appointment as well as eligibility for Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) funding in support of research.
