John A. Long (b.1957) is an Australian paleontologist who is currently the Vice President of Research and Collections at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. He is also an author of popular science books. His main area of research is on the fossil fish of the Late Devonian Gogo Formation from northern Western Australia. It has yielded many important insights into fish evolution, such as Gogonasus and Materpiscis. His love of fossil collecting began at age 7 and he graduated with Ph.D from Monash University in 1984, specialising in Palaeozoic fish evolution. He held postdoctoral positions at the Australian National University (1984—85, Rothmans Fellow), The University of Western Australia (1986—87, Queen Elizabeth II Award) and The University of Tasmania (1988—89, ARC Fellow) before taking up a position as Curator in Vertebrate Palaeontology at the Western Australian Museum (1989—2004), and then as Head of Sciences at Museum Victoria (2004—2009).
