San Diego Natural History Museum seeks a full-time professional for the position of Collections Manager for the Department of Herpetology. The collection contains over 76,000 catalogued specimens dating back to 1891 including the largest rattlesnake collection in the world. Our holdings mostly come from southern California and Baja California, but also contain specimens that span the globe.

Candidates should have a strong background in herpetology, taxonomy, museum studies, geography, and data management. While traditional collection management experience is necessary, the position also expects candidates to be involved in applied sciences, such as field biology, conservation, collection digitization, diversity analysis using morphological and/or genomic data, or distribution modeling and mapping. Department activities include the Amphibian and Reptile Atlas of Peninsular California, the conservation of the California Red-legged Frog, expeditions and rapid assessment surveys, consulting services, and No Specimen Left Behind.
