The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre 
Dame invites applications for two tenure track faculty positions at 
the junior or senior level in Cell and Molecular Biology beginning fall 
semester 2002. Ph.D. and/or M.D. scientists should have post-
doctoral research experience and are expected to develop a 
competitive research program and contribute to teaching. Teaching 
responsibilities consist of one course per semester to include one 
undergraduate course in either Genetics, Cell Biology, Molecular 
Biology or Developmental Biology and graduate teaching in an area 
of expertise.  

We are particularly interested in individuals who complement 
existing research expertise in cell and molecular biology which 
include: molecular motors, membrane trafficking, mitosis, 
apoptosis, nuclear receptors, signal transduction, molecular 
genetics of visual processes, molecular and cellular nutrition and 
tumor biology. In particular, individuals utilizing zebrafish in their 
research are strongly encouraged to apply. The candidate's 
specific area of research is less important than a demonstrated 
record of excellence, originality and productivity in research. The 
department provides an excellent research environment including 
state of the art optical imaging, flow cytometry and cell sorting, 
automated histology and laser capture micro-dissection, and gene 
array facilities. The University also maintains excellent animal care, 
transgenic facilities and has recently committed additional funding 
to the Center for Zebrafish Research. Additional information is 
available at http://www.science.nd.edu/biology.  

The University of Notre Dame offers competitive salaries and 
generous start-up packages. Review of applications will begin as 
they are received and will continue until the positions are filled. 
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief description of 
research accomplishments, a statement of research objectives, a 
summary of teaching experience and a statement of teaching 
interests and philosophies. Candidates should also have three 
letters of recommendation sent to: Cell and Molecular Biology
