Department of Biology
Indiana University, Bloomington

        The Department of Biology invites applications for a tenure-track
Assistant Professor working in the area of animal development. We seek
candidates whose research focuses on the evolution of developmental
strategies and/or the development of model organisms such as Drosophila, C.
elegans, zebrafish, and mouse.

        This position is part of a significant expansion of
IU-Bloomington's life sciences. The expansion includes construction of two
major research buildings, creation of a new interdepartmental program in
Biochemistry and Biophysics, establishment of the Center for Genomics and
Bioinformatics, and numerous recent hirings in the areas of microbiology,
biochemistry, cell and developmental biology, molecular evolution, and
ecology.  One consequence of this expansion is that we welcome applications
from two-career couples.

        The successful candidate will be provided with a competitive
start-up package and will be expected to establish a vigorous externally
funded research program and to participate in teaching undergraduate and
graduate courses. For more information about the Biology Department and for
links to information about the campus and the Bloomington community, see

        Candidates should send a curriculum vitae, a statement of research
(past, present, and planned), and representative publications, and arrange
to have three (or more) letters of recommendation sent to:  Prof. Susan
Strome, Animal Development Faculty Search, Department of Biology, Indiana
University, 1001 E. 3rd St., Bloomington, IN  47405-3700.  Review of
applications will begin November 15 and will continue until suitable
candidates are identified.

Women, minority candidates, and couples are encouraged to apply.
