CANADA RESEARCH CHAIR IN DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY

The Genes & Development Research Group (GDRG) and the Department of 
Biochemistry & Molecular Biology invite applications for a full-time 
academic position at the Assistant Professor level or higher as a 
Canada Research Chair (Tier II) in Developmental Biology.   This 
position offers an excellent opportunity to develop an independent 
research program within a dynamic, collaborative and 
multidisciplinary environment.  Current strengths of the GDRG include 
molecular, genetic and neurobiological approaches to the study of the 
development of model organisms, including C. elegans, Drosophila, 
Xenopus, chick and mouse. For more information about the research 
interests of the GDRG members, see 
<http://www.ucalgary.ca/gdrg/>http://www.ucalgary.ca/gdrg/. While 
duties include some teaching and graduate student supervision, at 
least 75% of time will be protected for research.

The GDRG and Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology are part 
of the rapidly growing Faculty of Medicine which is in the process of 
building a major new research facility.  Calgary is a vibrant, 
multicultural city (population ~850,000) near the Rocky Mountains, 
Banff National Park and Lake Louise.

Qualifications include a PhD and/or MD, at least two years of 
postdoctoral experience and a proven record of research excellence in 
developmental biology.  In addition to nomination for the Canada 
Research Chair (Tier II; for Terms of Reference see 
<http://www.chairs.gc.ca>http://www.chairs.gc.ca), the selected 
candidate is expected to compete successfully for salary support and 
establishment funding from the Alberta Heritage Foundation for 
Medical Research and/or the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. 
We anticipate generous start up funds will be available to a 
qualified candidate.

Please submit a curriculum vita, a summary of research interests and 
two reprints of recent publications, and arrange to have three 
letters of reference sent directly, by November 30, 2001 to:

Dr. Samuel Weiss, Chair
Genes & Development Research Group
