There are currently two positions open for Developmental
Biologists at the University of Calgary: one in the Genes
and Development Research Group in the Faculty of Medicine
and another in the Department of Biological Sciences.
Drosophila biologists studying fundamental problems of
development would be very appropriate for either position.


The Genes & Development Research Group and the Department of
Biochemistry & Molecular Biology invite applications for a
full-time academic position in the field of developmental
biology.   This position offers an excellent opportunity to
develop an independent research program within a
multidisciplinary environment.  Current strengths include
molecular, genetic and neurobiological approaches to the
study of the development of model organisms, including C.
elegans, Drosophila, Xenopus, chick and mouse.  While duties
include some teaching and graduate student supervision, 75%
of time will be protected for research.  Calgary is a
beautiful and vibrant city (pop. 800,000), located within an
hour of the Rocky Mountains and Banff National Park.

Qualifications include a Ph.D. and/or M.D., at least two
years of postdoctoral experience and a proven record of
excellence in research.  The selected candidate is expected
to compete successfully for salary support and establishment
funding from the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical
Research and/or the Medical Research Council of Canada; we
anticipate that generous start up funds will be available to
a qualified candidate.  For more information about our
research group, see  http://www.ucalgary.ca/gdrg/.

By November 26, 1999, please submit a curriculum vitae, a
summary of research interests, two reprints of recent
publications and arrange to have three letters of reference
sent directly to:

Dr. Samuel Weiss, Chair

The Department of Biological Sciences invites applications
for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or
Associate Professor level.  The position is available July
1, 2000 and is open to applicants with a strong background
in animal developmental biology (Ph.D. degree, at least
three years of postdoctoral experience and a record of
productive high-quality research).  The successful candidate
should establish an active, externally funded research
program in contemporary developmental biology and be
committed to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and
graduate levels.  The major teaching responsibilities will
fall in the area of developmental biology.  Potential
applicants are invited to visit the web site of the
Department (www.ucalgary.ca/UofC/faculties/SC/BI/).  Calgary
