Academic Search International Ltd has been retained by Massey 
in New Zealand to assist in their search to appoint a new Head of its
Institute of Molecular BioSciences.

Biology, Biochemistry, Plant Biology, Genetics, Microbiology,
Molecular Ecology and Evolution, and Bioinformatics. The Institute is
highly research active and hosts the Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular
Ecology and Evolution (one of just five foundation Centres of
Excellence in New Zealand), a Centre for Functional Genomics, a 
for Structural Biology (jointly with the Institute of Fundamental
Sciences) and a Protozoa Research Unit. 

The appointee will provide strategic leadership within the Institute
and promote excellence in teaching, research and service to the wider
community.  The Institute is seeking to broaden its academic and

covered ski slopes on Mount Ruapehu.
