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 Glial-Neuronal 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.
