=46OUR ASSISTENT/ASSOCIATE PROFESSORSHIPS IN EUKARYOTIC MODEL ORGANISMS
The positions are attractive for scientists interested in building up a
new center, focused on model eukaryotic organisms, that will be located
in a custom built building from 1999. The present opportunities are for
group leaders in the areas of C. elegans (ref no 30/98), Arabidopsis
(ref no31/98), Zebra Fish (32/98), and Mouse (ref no 33/98) genetics to
complement existing Drosophila, yeast and mouse activities (incl. core
facility for ES-cell work, transgenic animals and embryo banking).
Successful applicants will be well supported with supplementary
positions and a consumables budget in order to facilitate rapid
establishment of strong research groups. Successful applicants will be
expected to participate in a new masters program in biology in which
studies of the respective model organisms play a key role.
The positions are permanent with the possibility of later conversion=
full professor. Both the research and education experience of candidates
will be considered. Candidates with a broad zoological or botanical
interest will be appreciated. Good command of the Swedish and/or English
language is essential.

S=F6dert=F6rns h=F6gskola is a new Swedish university college, founded in
1996. This fall it will already have grown to about 5,000 students and
250 academic staff and it is planned that S=F6dert=F6rns h=F6gskola will
become a full university by 2003. The main campus is situated in
=46lemingsberg, a suburb 15 km south of Stockholm City with excellent
communications and good residential possibilities.
Natural science activities are pursued in close collaboration with t=
southern campus of the Karolinska Institute which shares the campus.
Present activities give a broad coverage of biological and medical
sciences with strength in fields such as signal transduction, gene
regulation, structural biology and cancer biology. We now offer a great
opportunity to participate in the development of new research and
education programs in biology. In the humanities and social sciences,
S=F6dert=F6rns h=F6gskola is established in most disciplines and has
specialised on studies of the transition after the Soviet era in the
Baltic Sea region.
