=46OUR ASSISTENT/ASSOCIATE PROFESSORSHIPS IN EUKARYOTIC MODEL ORGANISMS

The positions are attractive for scientists interested in building up a new
center, focused on model eukaryotic organisms, that will be located in a
custom built building from 1999. The present opportunities are for group
leaders in the areas of C. elegans (ref no 30/98), Arabidopsis (ref
no31/98), Zebra Fish (32/98), and Mouse (ref no 33/98) genetics to
complement existing Drosophila, yeast and mouse activities (incl. core
facility for ES-cell work, transgenic animals and embryo banking).
Successful applicants will be well supported with supplementary positions
and a consumables budget in order to facilitate rapid establishment of
strong research groups. Successful applicants will be expected to
participate in a new masters program in biology in which studies of the
respective model organisms play a key role.

The positions are permanent with the possibility of later conversion to
full professor. Both the research and education experience of candidates
will be considered. Candidates with a broad zoological or botanical
interest will be appreciated. Good command of the Swedish and/or English
language is essential.

S=96dert=96rns h=96gskola is a new Swedish university college, founded in 19=
96.
This fall it will already have grown to about 5,000 students and 250
academic staff and it is planned that S=96dert=96rns h=96gskola will become =
a
full university by 2003. The main campus is situated in Flemingsberg, a
suburb 15 km south of Stockholm City with excellent communications and good
residential possibilities.

Natural science activities are pursued in close collaboration with the
southern campus of the Karolinska Institute which shares the campus.
Present activities give a broad coverage of biological and medical sciences
with strength in fields such as signal transduction, gene regulation,
structural biology and cancer biology. We now offer a great opportunity to
participate in the development of new research and education programs in
biology. In the humanities and social sciences, S=96dert=96rns h=96gskola is
established in most disciplines and has specialised on studies of the
transition after the Soviet era in the Baltic Sea region.
