Dear all

Please find below details of 4 new posts in the School of Biological
Sciences here at the University of Plymouth. These include a chair and
lectureship in Marine Biology.



University of Plymouth, School of Biological Sciences

2 Professorial appointments: Marine Biology and Biomedical Sciences
2 Lecturers/Senior Lecturers in above fields

The University of Plymouth is developing its international research
strengths. As a part of this strategic investment, it wishes to make 4
appointments to the School of Biological Sciences.  These will be in the
areas of Marine Biology and Biomedical Sciences (including
Neuroscience). For all posts, we are looking for applicants who apply
cellular and molecular biological techniques to fundamental questions
related to the understanding of biological function and evolution.
Potential for establishing research links with the Peninsula Medical
School is particularly desirable, as is an interest in collaborating
with environmental scientists.

Candidates for the Chairs will be of international standing, as
evidenced by their  record of published  work and research funding
obtained. They must also show evidence of the ability to motivate and
lead other researchers.  Applicants for the Lectureships need to have a
PhD, at least 2-3 years post-doctoral experience, a strong publication
record relative to experience and must show clear evidence of potential
to develop independent research programmes funded from external
grant-awarding bodies. You must also be committed to research-informed
teaching.  Interviews will be held in January 2003 with the expectation
that successful candidates will be in post by August/September 2003.

For informal discussion of the posts, contact:
Professor Malcolm B Jones, email: mjones at or
Professor Roddy Williamson, email: rwilliamson at

Closing date: December 19th 2002
