1.  ASSISTANT PROFESSOR - PLANT GENOMICS

The Department of Plant Agriculture at the University of Guelph invites
applications for a full-time, tenure-track research and teaching position at
the rank of Assistant Professor.

The successful candidate is expected to initiate a creative research program
that applies recent developments in genomics to enhance our understanding of
fundamental plant processes and leads to the genetic improvement of grass
species.  The individual is expected to teach at the undergraduate and
graduate level in his/her area of expertise, to seek research funding from
federal, provincial and industry sources and to work as part of a team of
scientists in the university’s Food System Biotechnology Centre.  The
position is 65% research and 35% teaching.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in an appropriate discipline and
postdoctoral experience is preferred.  Candidates should provide evidence of
a commitment to teaching and of excellence in research.  Excellent research
facilities and support are available.  Please see our web page
(http://www.oac.uoguelph.ca/CRSC/mainpath.html) for details on the
Department, the facilities and the University.

Applications, including curriculum vitae, University transcripts, a
statement of research and teaching interests and the names of three referees
should be sent to: Dr. Clarence Swanton, Chair, Search Committee, Department
of Plant Agriculture, Crop Science Building, University of Guelph, Guelph,
Ontario, Canada, N1G 2W1.  Fax: (519) 763-8933.  Closing date January 28,
2000.  This appointment is subject to final budgetary approval.  Salary will

The University of Guelph is committed to an employment equity program that
includes special measures to achieve diversity among its faculty and staff.
We therefore particularly encourage applications from qualified aboriginal
Canadians, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities and
women.



2.  ASSISTANT PROFESSOR - PLANT BIOINFORMATICS

The Department of Plant Agriculture at the University of Guelph invites
applications for a full-time, tenure-track research and teaching position at
the rank of Assistant Professor.

The successful candidate is expected to initiate a creative research program
on computational and statistical methods to interpret and exploit molecular
genetic and physiological data that will enhance our understanding of
fundamental plant processes and lead to the genetic improvement of crops.
Interactions with other scientists involved with genomics, breeding,
quantitative genetics, crop modeling and statistics will be expected.  The
individual is expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate level in
his/her area of expertise, to seek research funding from federal, provincial
and industry sources and to work as part of a team of scientists in the
university’s Food System Biotechnology Centre.  The position is 60% research
and 40% teaching.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in an appropriate discipline and
postdoctoral experience is preferred.  Candidates should provide evidence of
a commitment to teaching and of excellence in research.  Excellent research
