Senior Theorist at TRIUMF

TRIUMF, Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics, and the
      Physics and Astronomy Department of the University of British Columbia (UBC), are
      seeking to appoint a prominent international theorist to lead TRIUMF's theory group.
      The group leader will be expected to have sufficient breadth to provide theoretical
      leadership across all areas of the TRIUMF research portfolio, including in particular
      ISAC, TRIUMF's new radioactive isotope facility. As a full faculty member of the
      Physics and Astronomy Department of UBC, the appointee will also have an opportunity
      to teach both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The level of this appointment
      will be one of the most senior in the laboratory, and given that the successful
      candidate will be an established theoretician of international stature with
      exceptional qualifications, the appointment to UBC will be at the level of Associate
      or Full Professor.

      TRIUMF and UBC hire on the basis of merit and are committed to employment equity. All qualified
      applicants are invited and encouraged to apply; however, if any two candidates equally meet the stringent
      requirements for this position, then preference will be given to the Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
      Applications containing curriculum vitae, a statement of research achievements and plans, and up to four
      reference letters should be sent by December 30th, 2002 to: TRIUMF Human Resources (Competition #
      886), 4004 Wesbrook Mall, Vancouver, B.C., Canada V6T 2A3 Fax: (604) 222-3791. Applications will not
