MODEL ORGANISM DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGIST
The Program in Developmental Biology in the Research Institute of The
Hospital for Sick Children is seeking a highly qualified faculty-level
researcher studying fundamental questions in developmental biology in a
model organism. We are particularly interested in applicants who study
zebra fish but we would be pleased to receive applications from 
outstanding
researchers working on other model organisms such as C. elegans, 
Drosophila
and mouse.

The Hospital for Sick Children is a world-renowned academic health 
sciences
centre dedicated to the care and prevention of children's diseases. The
Research Institute comprises some 120 laboratories with more than 900
trainees and staff. The Program in Developmental Biology offers an
interactive and collegial environment in which to conduct research at 
the
forefront of developmental biology. It includes 17 full-time faculty
members whose laboratories study mechanisms of cell fate specification,
differentiation, growth control, gene regulation, signal transduction 
and
morphogenesis using genetic models such as mouse, Drosophila and C.
elegans. The Research Institute is affiliated with the University of
Toronto; thus Program faculty are cross-appointed to one or more 
graduate
departments and most are also affiliated with the Collaborative Program 
in
Developmental Biology at the University.

Applicants should send their curriculum vitae, list of publications,
statement of research plans and the names of three referees, to: 
Mary-Rose
Callan, Coordinator, Program in Developmental Biology, The Hospital for
Sick Children Research Institute, 555 University Avenue, Toronto, 
Ontario,
Canada M5G 1X8. Applications may be sent by e-mail to 
mrcallan at sickkids.ca.
The deadline for applications is March 1, 2004.

We especially welcome applications from visible minority group members,
women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, members of sexual
minority groups and others who may contribute to further 
diversification of
ideas. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply, however, 
Canadians
and permanent residents will be given priority.
