The Alton J. Brann Distinguished Professorship is a chaired tenured
position in the College of Arts & Sciences.  It carries endowed
support and is to be filled by a distinguished scientist who will
influence and enhance our computational science programs.  Initial
appointment will be at the professor level, although if a suitable
junior candidate is selected it will be at the associate professor
level.

We are seeking a scientist who is actively involved in computational
science and who has an interdisciplinary research program in such
areas as bioinformatics, ecoinformatics, computational molecular
biology, ecosystems modeling, computational physics, or computer
engineering.  The applicant's established research area will
complement and build on existing strengths, and offer an opportunity
to develop an active program around the chaired position that would
support post doctoral fellows, visiting scientists, industry
practitioners, and addition research activities.  Candidates are
expected to have a distinguished research publication record and
significant record of external grant support.  The candidate will have
a primary appointment in one of the doctoral granting departments with
a joint appointment, if appropriate, in one of the other science
departments.

	The successful candidate will be expected to:

     #	Add to the existing strengths in the Sciences and increase
UMass Boston's visibility both nationally and internationally in a way
that attracts other scholars to our campus.
     #	Have an established or emerging national and international
reputation in computational science
     #	Develop an active research agenda at this campus, initiating
and engaging in collaborative and interdisciplinary programs
     #  Obtain substantial external research support

Review of applications will begin in January 2003 and continue until
the position is filled. Please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae,
