BIOLOGY YORK UNIVERSITY - Department of Biology invites applications for
Chair of the department. The department has a strong orientation towards
research and teaching excellence and the current complement of 32 full
time faculty is focussed in four general areas of Animal Physiology, Cell
and Molecular Biology, Plant Sciences and Population Biology. There is
also an initiative with the Chemistry Department to develop an area of
expertise in biomolecular structure. Compatibility with one or more of
these areas is essential. However, leadership and research excellence are
paramount over specific area of expertise. An ability to maintain
interactions with other disciplines in the university is important, as is
the promotion of the department on the national scene. Undergraduate
teaching activities in the department cover the breadth of Biology and
include substantial teaching of non-majors. Graduate studies are pursued
by about 70 full time MSc and PhD students. The Department has an
excellent research environment, including numerous University-supported
staff, workshops and central Molecular Biology and Microscopy core
facilities. York University is also part of the vibrant research,
intellectual, cultural and social community of Metropolitan Toronto. The
position is available from July 1st 1999, but a later start is negotiable.
