The 5* research-rated School of Life Sciences at Dundee University comprises 70 Research Groups and 700 staff from 51 countries and was recently rated the best European Research Institute in which to work ("The Scientist", November 7th 2005). Research papers published by University of Dundee scientists in the fields of Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology were more highly cited over the past 10 years than any other University in Europe. Current research grants are £24 million p.a.
The Division of Environmental and Applied Biology is undergoing restructuring and expansion. We are therefore inviting applications for Principal Investigators to establish and lead research groups under this general subject area, as well as individuals who may be interested in moving established groups to Dundee. An ability to interact with other members of the Division would be an advantage, as well as with other research groups and technical services within the School of Life Sciences.
The Division has a close association with the Division of Mathematics and the nearby Scottish Crop Research Institute where our plant biology research is based. The research programmes of other members of the Division and other Principal Investigators in the School of Life Sciences may be viewed at http://www.dundee.ac.uk/biocentre/SLSBOverview.htm 
We are particularly interested in individuals who are able to apply the latest molecular, biochemical and chemical techniques to biological problems of environmental significance. The School of Life Sciences has unrivaled facilities in a range of technologies including proteomics, bioinformatics, light and electron microscopy.
Applicants should have an outstanding record of research at postdoctoral level or higher, and should include a brief statement of research accomplishments plus future research plans.
Applications in the form of a CV and covering letter (4 copies of each), including the names and addresses of 3 referees, should be sent to Mrs Janette Cordiner, Administrator, School of Life Sciences, MSI/WTB Complex, University of Dundee, DD1 5EH, e-mail: j.v.brown at dundee.ac.uk
