invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at any rank 
beginning fall semester 2004.  Candidates are expected to provide 
research expertise within any area of Neuroscience, while 
complementing current research strengths and our campus-wide 
initiative to develop a center of excellence in Neuroscience (with a 
focus in visual science).  Individuals studying the development and/or 
function of any neuronal tissue in zebrafish are strongly encouraged to 
apply.   Ph.D. and/or M.D. scientists should have postdoctoral research 
experience and a demonstrated record of excellence, originality, and 
productivity in research. The department's research environment

made a major commitment to zebrafish research by funding a Center 
for Zebrafish Research that includes excellent animal care (staffed by 
trained technicians) and transgenic facilities.  The successful candidate 
will participate in teaching one undergraduate and one specialized 
graduate course per year.  Additional information on the department is
