This was published recently in Science, etc, but wanted to make sure
that it gets out to the plant community.
Two Tenure Track
Positions in Cell 
and Developmental Biology
The Department of Biology at McGill University invites applications for
two positions in Cell and Developmental Biology. Candidates using fungal
(budding or fission yeast) or genetically well-characterized
non-mammalian model systems are particularly encouraged to apply, as are
applicants focusing on subcellular structures using advanced imaging and
microscopy techniques or single-molecule manipulations. 
The successful candidates will be joining the Developmental Biology
Research Initiative (DBRI), a dynamic, interactive group of researchers
working on a range of subjects in yeast, C. elegans, Drosophila,
Xenopus, Arabidopsis and other model organisms
(http://www.biology.mcgill.ca/DBRI/dbri_home.htm). The DBRI is
completing a $19.8M infrastructure renovation and renewal project, and
is an integral part of the McGill University Life Sciences Research
Complex. Ample newly renovated or newly constructed laboratory and
office space will be provided to the successful candidates. We
anticipate that these positions will be filled at the Assistant
Professor (tenure-track) level, but applications from more established
candidates may be considered for recruitment at the Associate or Full
Professor rank. Competitive start-up and equipment funding packages will
be available. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to
undergraduate and graduate teaching in the department and to maintain an
externally funded research program
Applicants should possess a Ph. D. degree and significant postdoctoral
experience resulting in research publications. Persons wishing to be
considered for these positions should forward a curriculum vitae, a
statement of research interests, a statement of teaching interests,
copies of major publications and arrange to have three letters of
reference submitted directly to: Cell and Developmental Biology Search,
