The University of New Hampshire is continuing its search for an 
Endowed Professor in Genomics.  Please see the attached 
advertisement for details.

Several things have changed since this position was first advertised 
two years ago.

1) The startup funds available have increased to approximately 
USD$1 million. 
2) Continuing research support is available from the endowment.
3) Abundant space is available on the fourth floor of a brand new
4) The University has asked me to build a Center for Genome
Studies, and has provided separate funds to expand our existing 
core facilities for DNA sequencing.

I have a particular interest in finding the right person for this 
position, to complement my efforts in building the genome center. 
This is a wonderful opportunity for the right person, and I urge all
interested parties to apply.  There is no fixed deadline, but review of
applications begins Feb 1.

Please don't hesitate to contact me or the search committee chair

in areas of genomics that compliment existing research at UNH, 
including Marine and Freshwater Biology, Environmental Sciences,
