BIOLOGY Sars International Centre for Marine Molecular Biology  

Applications are invited for two group leader positions, as the Centre 
now will expand the present program of comparative molecular biology. 
Projects may address life processes in various phyla, including fish and 
tunicates, using one or several of the following approaches:  

- molecular and cell biology 
- developmental biology 
- functional genomics 
- bioinformatics 

Group leaders are offered a six-year contract with the possibility of 
prolongation.  Research groups will be allocated with substantial 
resources depending on the qualification and infrastructure that are 
immediately available. The size of the groups may also be further 
increased through external funding. The Sars International Centre 
conducts basic research in marine molecular biology, and has five 
research groups with major focus on the tunicate Oikopleura dioica 
and the zebrafish.  The Centre is located in modern facilities at the 
Bergen High Technology Centre together with several departments of 
the University of Bergen.   

Applications including a complete CV with referees, a letter of 
motivation and a five pages research project should be marked
