The Department of Cell Biology & Neuroscience 
(<http://cbns.ucr.edu/>http://cbns.ucr.edu/) at 
the University of California, Riverside, is 
strengthening its faculty in the area of synaptic 
plasticity/glial-neuronal interactions. 
Construction of a new laboratory building, the 
Biological Sciences Building, is now complete (as 
of June 2006) and will house the new faculty as 
well as most of those in the current department. 
This search seeks applicants at the assistant 
professor level whose primary research interests 
are directed towards investigating signaling 
underlying synapse formation and plasticity. 
Applicants must hold a Ph.D., and postdoctoral 
experience is essential for candidates at the 
assistant level. It is expected that this hire 
would interact broadly with faculty in our 
Neuroscience Graduate Program as well as 
department faculty with interests in other areas 
of cell biology, and with members of the Center 
for GlialóNeuronal Interactions at UC Riverside. 
Additionally, this person could further 
strengthen our links with the Center for 
Nanoscale Science and Engineering and the stem 
cell focus. Opportunities for graduate student 
training are available through participation in 
several interdepartmental graduate programs, 
including the Neuroscience Program 
(<http://neuro.ucr.edu/>http://neuro.ucr.edu/) 
and the Cellular, Molecular and Developmental 
Biology Program 
(<http://www.cell.ucr.edu/>http://www.cell.ucr.edu/). 
Other teaching responsibilities would be at the 
undergraduate level. Send applications, including 
Curriculum Vita, personal research statement and 
at least three letters of reference to: Chair, 
Plasticity Search Committee, Department of Cell 
Biology & Neuroscience at the University of 
California, Riverside, CA 92521 USA.  Review of 
applications will begin October 2, 2006 and will 
continue until the position is filled. The 
University of California is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
