NEON Biorepository Invertebrate Collections Manager

The Arizona State University (ASU) School of Life Sciences is seeking an Invertebrate Collections Manager for the National Ecological Observatory Network Biorepository (NEON). This project is expected to run for 30 years. For each project year, the NEON Biorepository at ASU will receive, process, store, and make available for research an average of 100,000 biodiversity occurrences sampled at more than 80 sites across the United States. We will facilitate this by creating a data portal to support occurrence discovery and tracking of sample transactions and usage statistics. The invertebrate collections manager will play a critical role in coordinating these tasks, focusing on the high-volume and taxonomically diverse samples of pinned and pooled ground beetles (Carabidae), mosquitoes (Culicidae), pitfall trap “by-catch”, and aquatic macroinvertebrates. The position requires expertise in arthropod/insect diversity and identification, and an ability to develop new data products to leverage the research potential of NEON invertebrate specimens with the greater community.
