The following faculty positions are now available:

QUEEN=92S UNIVERSITY  The Department of Biology invites applications 
for up to two tenure-track positions in a field of fundamental plant 
science that will support research to investigate the biological 
effects of greenhouse gas emissions. Applicants must demonstrate the 
potential to create and lead a strong research program contributing 
to the goals of BIOCAP Canada (www.biocap.ca), a national, 
not-for-profit research foundation that operates from within Queen's 
University. Successful applicants will have innovative research 
programs designed to investigate the impact of changing climate and 
greenhouse gas levels on natural ecosystems, agriculture or forestry 
in Canada. Practical applications of such research may include the 
mitigation of environmental impacts, the enhancement of carbon stocks 
in forestry or agriculture, or the provision of novel sources of 
renewable energy, chemicals and materials for a bio-based economy. 
Special consideration will be given to biologists who have skills in 
plant metabolic regulation, molecular physiology, or physiological 
ecology and who will complement the strong plant science group at 
Queen=92s. Successful applicants at the assistant or associate 
professor level may be appointed as a CANADA RESEARCH CHAIR (Tier 2) 
that has been assigned to the Queen=92s Department of Biology, while 
more senior applicants may be appointed as a CANADA RESEARCH CHAIR 
(Tier 1) that is open to all departments at Queen=92s including Biology 
(for details see www.biocap.ca/main_res_opp.htm). The Department of 
Biology has a superb plant growth facility in the new Biosciences 
Complex, and our 3000 hectare QUBS field station can support large 
research programs on terrestrial or aquatic ecosystems (see 
biology.queensu.ca/~qubs). Qualifications include a PhD, postdoctoral 
experience and published evidence of excellent research ability. 
Successful candidates will be expected to develop vigorous, 
externally funded research programs, and be excellent teachers. 
Expected date of appointment is January 1, 2003, subject to 
negotiation. Application deadline is April 30, 2002 or until 
positions are filled. Applicants should be familiar with the CRC 
program (http://www.chairs.gc.ca) and must provide a statement as to 
how they could contribute to the goals of BIOCAP Canada. This 
statement together with curriculum vitae, statement of current and 
prospective research interests, statement of teaching interests, and 
at least three letters of reference should be sent to: Dr. Peter T. 
Boag, Head, Department of Biology, Queen's University, Kingston, 
Ontario, Canada K7L 3N6 (E-mail: biohead at biology.queensu.ca, Fax: 
(613) 533-6617, web site biology.queensu.ca). This position is open 
to citizens of all countries, but Canadians and permanent residents 
will be considered first. Queen's University has an employment equity 
program and encourages applications from all qualified women and men, 
including visible minorities, aboriginal people, persons with 
disabilities, gay men and lesbians.
