Job Title: Assistant Professor (tenure track) in Molecular development of plants, Université de Montréal, Québec, Canada.

Text in English: The Department of Biological Sciences at the Université de Montréal (UdM) invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in Molecular development of plants at the rank of Assistant Professor, effective June 1, 2016.
We are searching for an outstanding candidate whose research focuses on plant developmental biology. Preference will be given to candidates who study the mechanistic basis of developmental processes in a model system. The use of advanced and interdisciplinary techniques, which might include advanced genetics and imaging approaches, as well as a good knowledge of plant anatomy and morphology are assets. The appointee will integrate the Plant Biology Research Institute located at the Montréal Botanical Garden (http://www.irbv.umontreal.ca). The Institute hosts 12 UdM professors and 7 research scientists from the Montréal Botanical Garden. Researchers work in every discipline of plant biology, from molecular biology to ecology, both in fundamental research and its applications. The Institute is a vibrant and interactive research community with currently 107 students, 50 research staff, and 87 fellows including post-docs and undergrad trainees. Excellent opportunities exist for collabo ration within our Department/Institute, with other departments at UdM, as well as with nearby Montréal Universities.

Postdoctoral Position in Developmental Neuroscience

A three-years postdoctoral position (starting January-February, 2016) is available at the Centro de Biología Molecular Sevéro Ochoa. The position will be funded by the ERA-Net/Neuron project ImprovVision: Understanding and reprogramming developmental visual disorders: from anophthalmia to cortical impairment.
The project aims at understanding how a primary abnormality in one component of the visual system (i.e. the eye) affects the remaining connected brain areas to finally exploit the obtained information to reprogram resident glia into induced neurons of visual identity. The project will involve the use of zebrafish and mice as model systems together with genomic, biochemical and morphological approaches.
We are seeking a highly motivated, passionate and enthusiastic candidate with a strong background in molecular and developmental biology. The candidate should be able to plan and execute experimental research independently and rigorously, as well as to work effectively in a team. Previous experience in zebrafish/mouse visual system would be an asset. Fluency in spoken and written English is expected.
Interested candidates should contact Paola Bovolenta, sending a letter of application together with a CV and the contact information of at least two referees, at: pbovolenta@cbm.csic.es
