There are two faculty positions for Developmental Biologists
open at the University of Calgary. One position is in the
Department Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the Faculty
of Medicine (Deadline November 20, 1998), the other is in
the Department of Biological Sciences, in the Faculty of
Sciences (Deadline February 1999). Applications to the
searches submitted by qualified Drosophila Developmental
Biologists will be very welcome.

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 Banff National Park.

Qualifications include a Ph.D. and/or M.D., at least two
years of postdoctoral experience and a proven record of
excellence in research.  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 Medical Research Council of Canada; we
anticipate that generous start up funds will be available to
a qualified candidate. For more information about our
research group, see www.acs.ucalgary.ca/~resoff/mdbrg.htm.

In accordance with Canadian immigration requirements,
priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent
residents of Canada.  The University of Calgary is committed
to Employment Equity.

By November 20, 1998, please submit a curriculum vitae, a
summary of research interests, two reprints of recent
publications and arrange to have three letters of reference
sent directly to:

Dr. Paul Mains, Chair
Molecular and Developmental Research Group
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
University of Calgary
3330 Hospital Drive N.W.
Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2N 4N1


Assistant Professor

ANIMAL DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGIST

The Department of Biological Sciences invites applications
for a tenure-track faculty position as Assistant Professor.
The position is available July 1, 1999 and is open to
applicants with a strong background in animal developmental
biology (Ph.D. degree and at least three years of
postdoctoral experience and a record of productive
high-quality research).  The successful candidate will
establish an active, externally funded research program in
contemporary developmental biology and be committed to
excellence and innovation in teaching at the undergraduate
and graduate levels.  The major teaching responsibilities
will fall in the area of developmental biology.  Potential
applicants are invited to visit the web site of the
Department of Biological Sciences (www.ucalgary.ca/UofC/
faculties/SC/BI/) and its embedded links to the Virtual
Embryo and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular
Biology in the Faculty of Medicine.  Calgary is a vibrant,
dynamic city (pop. 800,000) located in close proximity to
the Rocky Mountains and Banff National Park.

In accordance with Canadian Immigration requirements
priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent
residents of Canada.  The University of Calgary respects,
appreciates, and encourages diversity.

A complete application should include the following: a
