The Department of Botany and Plant Pathology seeks applicants for a 12-month, full-time (1.0 FTE) Instructor and Herbarium Curator

The OSU Herbarium is a major regional collection of approximately 500,000 specimens of plants, fungi and lichens, and the only herbarium in Oregon that supports research and extension plant identification. The OSU Herbarium is actively growing and heavily utilized, and it is the primary resource for the documentation and study of Oregon's diverse flora.

The successful candidate will teach plant taxonomy, diversity, plant structure, and general botany with one class each academic term, and will develop and teach a summer field class in plant diversity/ecology; curate the OSU Herbarium; provide extension and outreach services associated with plant identification and public lectures; and serve as an advisor for the Botany undergraduate major.

OSU seeks diversity as a source of enrichment for our university community. We are an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer, and particularly encourage applications from members of historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ community members, and others who demonstrate the ability to help us achieve our vision of a diverse and inclusive community.
