Fungi. The CRC program has been established by the Canadian Federal
Government with the purpose of attracting/retaining outstanding
researchers to/within the Canadian university system. This Chair is for
a junior-level person (Assistant Professor level) who will be jointly

candidate will be expected to establish a vigorous research program in
the biological chemistry of plants or fungi. We particularly welcome

education of students at the undergraduate and graduate level in Botany
and Chemistry. UBC hires on the basis of merit and is committed to
employment equity. All qualified persons are encouraged to apply.
Interested individuals should send a CV, list of publications, and a
