    The Bell Museum at the University of Minnesota is hiring a Zoological Collections Manager.

    This position is responsible for the management, preservation, accessibility, and growth of the Bell Museum Zoological Collections at the University of Minnesota. The Zoological Collections Manager will oversee day-to-day operations of the core zoology collections of the Bell Museum, which include collections of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, mollusks, crustaceans, and associated genetic resources. The Collection Manager will work closely with the zoology curators, and will be responsible for specimen preparation, documentation, and conservation, as well as database management, handling loan requests, overseeing visitors, and answering information requests. The Zoological Collections Manager will report to the Science Director and collaborate with the curators in charge of these respective collections to design and implement routine activities and long-term goals.

    We are looking for individuals to join our team who are inspired by our mission to ignite curiosity and wonder, explore our connections to nature and the universe, and create a better future for our evolving world. We recognize that structural and institutional barriers exist that prevent the inclusion and equal participation of people in our work. We believe that recognizing who is missing, and working to include them, is a first step to becoming a better museum. Although this work is challenging, it will enhance our science and expand our reach. We strongly urge people who identify as underrepresented in the sciences to apply and work with us so that we reflect the society we serve.
