Job Description:

The University of Toronto at Mississauga (UTM), Department of Biology, invites
applications for a tenure track faculty position in Neurobiology and Behaviour
Genetics at the level of Assistant or early career Associate Professor (within
two years of tenure), effective July 1, 2003. We are seeking an 
individual whose
research focuses on development and/or function of the nervous system in
invertebrate or other non-mammalian animal model systems. Preference will be
given to candidates employing modern genetic, molecular and/or
neurophysiological approaches to research on behaviour. The 
successful candidate
will be nominated for a Tier II Chair in the prestigious Canada Research Chair
Program (http://www.chairs.gc.ca) and become part of the "Genetics and
Behavioural Neurobiology" CRC cluster that has its hub at UTM
(www.utm.utoronto.ca). These federally endowed chairs are open to all 
nationalities.

The successful applicant will be part of the newly established Centre for
Research on Biological Communication Systems with its neurophysiology
facilities, behavioural testing rooms, surgical, histological, molecular, and
microscopy labs. In addition, our Centre for Applied Biosciences and
Biotechnology provides modern state of the art facilities in confocal
microscopy, qRT pcr, DNA sequencing, NMR and houses the Canadian Drosophila
microarray centre.

The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. and preferably post-doctoral
experience, an outstanding record and commitment to research and teaching. The
appointee will be expected to build an active, externally funded and
internationally recognized research program and to contribute to the education
and training of undergraduate and graduate students. Salary will be 
commensurate
with qualifications and experience. The University of Toronto at Mississauga,
one of three campuses of the University of Toronto, is located in the City of
Mississauga, on the western border of Toronto, approximately 20 km from
Toronto's Civic Centre. In light of the extensive expansion (60% growth) to
occur at UTM over the next 10 years, we anticipate the addition of many new
positions in the Life Sciences. New buildings are being constructed, and
existing laboratory facilities are being renovated to support expansion in
Biotechnology, Behavioural Genetics and Animal and Human Communication.

Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching
interests, and copies of representative publications to Dr. Marla B, 
Sokolowski,
Department of Biology, University of Toronto at Mississauga, Mississauga,
Ontario, Canada L5L 1C6. Three letters of recommendation should also be sent to
Dr. Sokolowski. The University of Toronto is fully committed to academic
excellence and welcomes applications from all qualified individuals. All
qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian and permanent
residents will be given priority. The University of Toronto is strongly
committed to diversity within its community. The University especially welcomes
applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons,
persons with disabilities, members of sexual minority groups, and 
others who may
contribute to the further diversification of ideas. The deadline for submission
and letters of reference is 1 March 2003, although the search will remain open
until a successful candidate is found.
