Dear All:

The University of Toronto at Scarborough will be searching for two 
tenure stream Assistant professor positions in the fall.  Copies of the 
adverts are appended below.

_BIOCHEMIST_
The Department of Biological Sciences invites applications for a tenure 
stream position in plant or microbial protein biochemistry.  Applicants 
must have a PhD and at least one year of postdoctoral experience.  The 
ideal candidate will have demonstrated expertise in one of the areas of 
post-translational control of protein function, protein-protein 
interactions, or the biochemistry of membrane proteins.  They will also 
be conducting research in an area such as primary and secondary 
metabolism, signaling pathways, organismal response(s) to stress, 
membrane transport systems or plant-microbe interactions and will be 
expected to interact with existing research clusters studying the 
biology of plants and/or microbes.  The successful candidate will be 
expected to establish a strong, externally funded research program and 
to supervise graduate students.  S/he will have a strong commitment to 
excellence in teaching.  Further information on the research and 
teaching programs of the Department may be found by consulting the

The Department of Biological Sciences invites applications for a tenure 
stream position in community ecology.  We are particularly interested in 
applicants who have a strong field-based research program.  The 
successful candidate will join a group whose research strengths include 
macroecology, macroevolution, biogeography, and the dynamics of 
environmental change and will be expected to take an active role in both 
graduate and undergraduate teaching.  Further information on the 
research and teaching programs of the Department may be found by 
consulting the departmental web site at 
http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/~biosci/index.html.

Department of Biological Sciences, University of Toronto Scarborough, 
1265 Military Trail, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M1C 1A4 or to
