FAIRBANKS ALASKA

The Department of Biology and Wildlife and Institute of Arctic Biology at
the University of Alaska Fairbanks seek qualified applicants for
the tenure-track position of Assistant Professor of Cellular/Molecular
Biology. The appointee is expected to establish a productive research
program at the cellular or molecular level that ideally will integrate
with existing faculty interests including: high latitude physiology,
neurobiology, endocrinology, or chronobiology. The successful applicant
will be expected to teach two courses/year including cell biology
and an additional course such as developmental biology or molecular
biology, and to supervise graduate students. An earned Ph.D. in
biology or related field is mandatory; post-doctoral and teaching
experience are preferred.

Initial support for graduate student teaching assistants, laboratory
space, and start-up funds are included in this appointment which is
expected to begin in fall of 1997. Qualified women and minorities are
encouraged to apply.

Send applications including: statements of research interest, teaching
philosophy, curriculum vitae, and three letters of reference by January

The Department of Biology and Wildlife and the Institute of Arctic
Biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks seek a faculty member for
a tenure-track position at the level of ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. Candidates
are expected to have an earned doctorate in Biology or closely
related field with expertise in both laboratory and field research, and
interests in working at levels from molecular to the whole animal. The
successful candidate will be a critical member of a group of researchers
by bridging the disciplines of wildlife ecology, physiology, and
molecular biology. This individual also will be expected to:

develop a strong externally funded research program, mentor graduate
students, and
teach two courses per year, including Nutritional and
Physiological Ecology of Wildlife.

Extensive facilities are available including:
captive research herds of muskox and caribou (Large Animal Research
Station),  a remote field station north of the Arctic circle (Toolik
Field Station), animal vivarium equipped to conduct research in
environmental physiology, and a Core DNA Sequencing Facility.

We encourage candidates with the potential for forming collaborative
research programs with applied resource agencies and with existing
faculty having interests in physiological and ecological adaptations to
northern environments and ruminant physiological ecology. We especially
encourage the application of qualified women and minority candidates. The
possibility exists for a shared tenure-track position forcandidates with
spouses. Preference will be given to candidates with
postdoctoral and university teaching experience, and a strong publication
record.

To apply, send curriculum vitae, statements of research interests and
teaching philosophy, copies of pertinent reprints, and have three letters
