As seen in the 17 September issue of Science:


CORNELL UNIVERSITY HAS ANNOUNCED A $600-MILLION INITIATIVE to recruit faculty and provide resources that foster the multidisciplinary study of organisms in the post-genomics era. This faculty-driven effort serves to integrate the life sciences with Cornell's outstanding programs in the physical, engineering, and computational sciences through 13 interconnected, campus-wide focus areas composing The New Life Sciences Initiative. Having begun in 1998 and extending through the next five years, Cornell is in the process of making 110 professorial appointments, establishing a new graduate fellowship program, creating new research core facilities, and building several major capital projects. Active faculty searches are listed on the next three pages. For more information, please visit our websites: http://www.genomics.cornell.edu/, http://lifesciences.cornell.edu/about/initiative.php, and http://vivo.library.cornell.edu.

Cornell University invites applications for three junior faculty positions in neuroscience that use:
(1) Genomic/genetic, developmental, molecular, computational, and/or biophysical approaches to the study of excitable cells or tissues (contact David Lin at dml45@cornell.edu for more information);
(2) Cell and/or developmental approaches to study the functional organization of the nervous system; for this position, we especially seek individuals with expertise in murine model systems that will contribute to a university-wide interdisciplinary mouse program (contact Tony Bretscher at apb5@cornell.edu for more information); and
(3) Integrative approaches to CNS function with interests that could include, but are not limited to, the organization of sensory or motor systems; social behavior, social communication, social cognition; emotion or any other aspect of cognition such as learning and memory at the network level, spatial navigation, or decision-making; a variety of current recording or imaging techniques would be welcome (contact Barbara Finlay at blf2@cornell.edu for more information).
