Division Director X-Ray Science Advanced Photon Source The X-Ray Science Division (XSD) at Argonne National Laboratory is one of three divisions comprising the Advanced Photon Source (APS), which is the brightest source of x–rays in the western hemisphere and attracts over 3,000 scientific users each year. The division has over 160 employees, the majority of whom operate and carry out research on the 30 x-ray beamlines managed by the Advanced Photon Source. Over 280 publications have been co-authored by XSD scientists in 2007 and over 480 publications from the beamlines operated by XSD. The scientific areas involved include physics, chemistry, materials science and biology (see www.aps.anl.gov for more details). In addition to beamline research and operations, XSD also has groups providing advanced x-ray optics, detectors and administrative support to users. The division director should be internationally recognized in the application of synchrotron radiation, in at least one of the high-impact areas of research at APS, with a relevant PhD and 15-20 years experience. The individual should have demonstrated leadership and management abilities, at least at the level of a group or department, and the ability to articulate a vision for x-ray science at APS. The X-ray Science Director will assist the APS Director in the identification and development of new scientific directions for the facility, and assure efficient and safe operation of current XSD programs. In addition, the X-ray Science Division Director is expected to work with other ANL Division Director and APS Partners outside ANL to integrate their programs into the APS. Argonne National Laboratory is a multi-program laboratory operated by the UChicago Argonne, LLC for the U.S. Department of Energy. Argonne’s site is located about 25 miles southwest of Chicago on a beautiful 1500-acre campus-like environment. Interested candidates should send a detailed CV along with a list of publications, and the names and addresses of three references through the Argonne website at http://www.anl.gov/jobs job search for requisition XSD 313693. Review of applicants will begin December 15, 2008 and will continue until the position is filled.

Associate Professor or Professor Microbiology and Immunology
Professor and Head Cancer Biology and Infectious Diseases Research Center Eastern Virginia Medical School is making a major commitment to strengthen, expand, and integrate the academic enterprise in basic and clinical research. Our goal is to develop an academic culture which places EVMS at the forefront in biomedical science, education, and health delivery. EVMS and afﬁliated medical centers, e.g. Sentara Healthcare, are the primary medical school, research and health delivery institutions in the Hampton Roads-TidewaterMid Atlantic region. EVMS enrolls over 110 new medical students each year and offers graduate programs in the biomedical sciences and public health. The Tidewater-Mid Atlantic region offers exceptional education, recreation, entertainment and housing opportunities. As the next step in the recruitment process, we solicit applications for Professor and Head of a new Cancer Biology and Infectious Diseases Research Center. The candidate is expected to: (1) have a Ph.D. and/or M.D.; (2) be a nationally recognized and established scientist in cancer biology and/or infectious diseases; (3) have active NIH R01 or comparable cutting-edge extramural research grant support with translational impact; (4) possess an outstanding record of scholarly activity; and (5) foster a collaborative research environment in the new Research Center. The speciﬁc area of research is open, but ties between cancer and virology, biomarker discovery, use of proteomic/MS analytical approaches, etc potentially would capitalize on existing strengths. The new Center Head will be expected to foster collaborative research ties, establish a nationally prominent research center and develop an NIH Program Project or Centers Grant in cancer biology.

REGM research priorities include (1) Measures for comparative toxicity of alternative materials including objective and subjective measures of population health impacts and assignment of “weights” to these measures (2) Assessment of trade-offs among toxicity indices, product reliability, economic costs, recyclability, and ecological impacts (3) Inclusion of geographical differences and consumer behavior into material life cycle impact assessments. Applicants must be enrolled in an academic unit within the University of California.
