The Genes & Development Research Group (GDRG) and the
Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, University
of Calgary Faculty of Medicine, invite applications for a
full-time academic position as a Canada Research Chair (Tier
II) in Developmental Biology.   This position offers an
excellent opportunity to develop an independent research
program within a dynamic, collaborative and
multidisciplinary environment.  Current strengths of the
GDRG include molecular, genetic and neurobiological
approaches to the study of the development of model
organisms, including C. elegans, Drosophila, Xenopus, chick
and mouse. For more information about the GDRG, see
http://www.ucalgary.ca/gdrg/.  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.  In addition to the nomination for
the Canada Research Chair (Tier II; for Terms of Reference
see http://www.chairs.gc.ca), 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 Canadian Institutes of
Health Research.  We anticipate that generous start up funds
will be available to a qualified candidate.  

By November 16, 2001, 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
Genes & Development Research Group
