         Canada Research Chairs in Plant Biotechnology and Pathology

         The Department of Biological Sciences seeks applications for two NSERC
Canada Research Chair positions in Plant Biotechnology and Plant Pathology
effective July 1, 2001. One appointment  will be at the Tier I level and one at
the Tier II level. These appointments will support current endeavours in
Biotechnology and/or in Oenology and Viticulture. Applicants for the Plant
Biotechnology position should  have broad experience in the  use of molecular
genetic approaches to the understanding of plant biochemical, physiological or
developmental processes. Applicants for the Plant Pathology position should
have extensive experience in host-pathogen interactions. Expertise in
grapevine biology and/or photosynthesis would build on  existing strengths at
Brock  University and would be an asset. Tier I applicants are expected to be
leaders in  their field, have a strong  international research presence and
excellent teaching records including extensive experience in the supervision
of graduate and undergraduate research students. Tier II applicants should
have attained international recognition and show very strong research and
teaching potential. Both Tier I and  Tier II positions come with significant
discretionary research funding, additional funding through the Canadian
Foundation for Innovation  (CFI) for equipment, and reduced teaching loads.
