As part of a continuing Commitment to advance underrepresented
scholars in higher education, The University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill is pleased to announce the availability of several
positions in the Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity. 
If Postdoctoral Scholars would like to teach they can, but not more

research.  Applications for study in any discipline represented at the
University are welcome.  The Department of Biology at the

including
travel. Minority students who will have completed their doctoral
degree no later than July 1, 2004, and no earlier than July 1, 2000

permanent residents.  This program is funded by the State of North
Carolina and places emphasis on underrepresented minorities.

A complete application will include curriculum vitae, sample
publications and/or dissertation chapters, a statement of research
plans, three letters of recommendation, an application and a 
statement
of why you should be selected for the program.  Applications can be
