As a growing public collection of over one million preserved specimens of plants, lichens and algae, the National Herbarium of Canada safeguards a significant part of the hard evidence through which our nation’s natural history and future are understood. Within this incredible “plant library”, the Botany Technician works closely with the Botany Curator and a vibrant community of research staff and associates, visitors, volunteers, and interns, to build, preserve, and share the collection as productively as possible. Handling a dynamic array of concurrent projects, from meticulous repairs of fragile objects to preparing specimen loans to providing young visitors with memorable first introductions to botany, the Botany Technician maintains rigorous standards of organization, conservation, and documentation, and flexibly responds to changing needs and priorities. He or she comfortably interacts with the public and with clients representing academic, government, and public sectors, and effectively works independently and in a wide array of teams. Those passionate and curious about nature are especially well-suited for this rare opportunity.
