The University of Calgary will be recruiting two positions in
developmental biology in the upcoming year, as indicated in the
following advertisements.


DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGIST

The University of Calgary Molecular and Developmental Biology Research
Group and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology invite
applications for a full-time academic position in the field of
developmental biology.   This position offers an excellent opportunity
to develop an independent research program within a multidisciplinary
environment.  Current strengths include molecular, genetic and
neurobiological approaches to the study of the development of model
organisms, including C. elegans, Drosophila, Xenopus and mice.  While
duties include some teaching and graduate student supervision, 75% of
time will be protected for research.  Calgary is a beautiful and vibrant
city (pop. 800,000), located within an hour of the Rocky Mountains and
