Faculty  Position  in C. elegans Molecular Genetics

 The Department of Genetics, Cell Biology & Development (GCD) at the 
University of Minnesota is conducting a search for an Assistant or 
Associate Professor using molecular genetic approaches in the nematode 
C. elegansto study fundamental biological mechanisms. The successful 
candidate will join a core group of active nematode researchers with 
diverse interests including developmental timing, sexual 
differentiation, intercellular communication, nervous system 
development, cell adhesion, and the cellular roles of myosins and the 
cytoskeleton. The C. elegans group has significant ties to an 
interdepartmental Developmental Biology Center (DBC) 
(http://www.med.umn.edu/dbc/). GCD faculty exploit a variety of genetic 
model organisms, including fungi, algae, flies, zebrafish and mice. GCD 
is also home to the International C. elegansGenetics Center.

 The Department of GCD will provide a competitive salary and start up 
package, plus excellent laboratory space, with access to 
state-of-the-art core facilities. The candidate must have a Ph.D. or 
M.D. and at least two years of postdoctoral experience. Investigators 
studying any aspect of C. elegansbiology will be considered, with use 
of cutting edge technology, including genomics approaches, to address a 
fundamental problem serving as an important selection 
criterion. Emphasis will also be placed on the potential for 
interaction with existing research programs in GCD 
(http://www.gcd.med.umn.edu/) and the DBC. The person selected will be 
expected to develop or expand upon an independent, externally-funded 
research program and participate in the teaching mission of the 
department. Applications will be reviewed, beginning Dec 1, 2005, and 
will be accepted until the position is filled.
