EVOLUTIONARY DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGIST
WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY


A tenure-track faculty position in Evolutionary Developmental Biology is
available at the ASSISTANT PROFESSOR level in the Biology Department at
Wesleyan University.  We are especially interested in candidates whose
research addresses issues in development that are of fundamental
importance for evolutionary biology, including but not limited to:  the
developmental mechanisms underlying the origin and diversification of
body plans, recruitment of existing regulatory pathways into novel
developmental systems, and evaluation of homologies across major taxa.
The appointee is expected to complement existing departmental strengths
in evolution, development, genetics, and/or neurobiology.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. and post-doctoral experience.  The
successful applicant will be expected to set up an independent research
program and to participate in the departmental Ph.D. program.  Teaching
will be at the undergraduate and graduate levels  in the areas of
development and evolution, including a course such as Macroevolution or
Phylogenetic Diversity.  Wesleyan's Biology Department faculty is
research-oriented and successfully attracts outside funding, and the
Department is housed in well-equipped laboratories.  Please send us your
curriculum vitae and a concise statement of future research plans, and
have three letters of recommendation sent to:

Evolutionary Developmental Biology Search Committee, Department of
Biology, Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT  06459-0170.  Review of
applications will begin November 10, 1998.  Website:
