UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA - The Department of Biological Sciences 
invites applications for an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) position in 
evolutionary developmental biology to begin July 1, 2002. This appointment 
will be made under the auspices of the Canada Research Chairs Program 
(Tier II level). The candidate should have a strong record of research 
examining patterns or mechanisms of development from a comparative or 
evolutionary perspective, as well as potential for excellence in teaching. A 
research focus on marine organisms would be a significant asset to the 
Department, but outstanding applicants who work on other systems will also 
be seriously considered. The department offers an exciting environment for 
collaboration, with internationally recognized strengths in systematics & 
evolution, molecular biology & genetics, physiology & cell biology, and 
aquatic & terrestrial ecology (see: http://www.biology.ualberta.ca). 
Research excellence of our 75 faculty members and 275 graduate students 
is supported by exceptional infrastructure, including extensive museum 
collections, a modern molecular biology service unit, advanced microscopy 
and imaging capabilities, extensive controlled-environment facilities, and 
several field stations including the renowned Bamfield Marine Sciences 
Centre. Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, one-page summaries 
of research plans and teaching interests, and reprints of their three most 
significant publications to positions at biology.ualberta.ca or Dr. Gregory J. 
Taylor, Chair, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Alberta, 
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada T6G 2E9. Applicants should also arrange for 
three reference letters to be submitted. Closing date: December 15, 2001. 
In accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, priority will be 
given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada. If suitable 
Canadian citizens and permanent residents cannot be found, other 
individuals will be considered. Records arising from this competition will be 
managed in accordance with provisions of the Alberta Freedom of 
Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The University of Alberta hires 
on the basis of merit. We are committed to the principle of equity 
employment. We welcome diversity and encourage applications from all 
qualified women and men, including persons with disabilities, members of 
visible minorities and Aboriginal persons.
