Faculty position

McGill University, Biology Department, Montreal, Canada

There is a search started here in the field of developmental
and cell biology working on a genetically accessible model system.
Within the department of biology we have a model system floor
currently consisting of 3 Drosophila labs, 2.5 Arabidosis labs,
1 yeast lab and 1 worm lab.  We are now particularly interested
in finding an additional worm or yeast person.  I strongly encourage
suitable worm candidates to apply.  The department of Biology here
is a great place to work. People have been very successful in
setting up labs and obtaining grants.  My own lab currently
includes twelve people and is in the process of expanding
substantially, so any starting worm person will find it easy
to set up and get going.  Unless you really don't like snow,
life in Montreal is very nice including and in particular if
you have children.  Indeed, Montreal is both very safe and
inexpensive to live in.  But Montreal is also a large cosmopolitan
city with all the fun that implies.  Interested candidates can
email me or call me if they want for more information before
applying to the Chairman.  Please find below the official ad
which will appear in the journals
