Collections Manager, NEON Biorepository - Environmental & Zoological
Samples (Research Specialist)

The Arizona State University (ASU) School of Life Sciences is seeking a
Collections Manager for the National Ecological Observatory Network
Biorepository (NEON - https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.neonscience.org_&d=DwIBaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=-lUMCZ4RK28H4qvcd3vmEBuyVJHHG0OpDzFenR9wX-A&m=KIxQW8vxTqIht0fKp-sZzfD4SwCL7IabjdxuCcx56Ng&s=dIDk9fQQ0qZ2zB1VrRmaAM0SiteVDAnnOZdOXjA1NSc&e=). This project is
expected to run for 30 years. For each project year, the NEON Biorepository
at ASU will receive, process, 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 collections manager will play a critical role in
coordinating these tasks by focusing on a diverse suite of environmental
and zoological samples that include: thousands of frozen and room
temperature-preserved soil samples, wet depositions from terrestrial sites,
microbial samples; and furthermore, an array of zoological samples -
primarily arthropods (insects, arachnids) and vertebrate samples or
specimens (e.g., mammals, fish). The position is therefore relatively broad
in scope, and will complement existing positions focused primarily on
managing cryo and invertebrate collections. Candidates who consider
themselves capable of handling the environmental samples and also have a
zoological (in-/vertebrate) concentration that would complement existing
strengths of the NEON Biorepository team, are strongly encouraged to apply.
An ability to develop new data products to leverage the research potential
of environmental/zoological NEON Biorepository samples with the greater
community is highly desired. Inquiries can be directed to [log in to unmask]
