> Dear Colleague,

> at UCSB. These searches are unusual, as they target interdisciplinary
> fields of interest (Quantitative Systems Biology in one case and
> Neuroscience in the other) without specifying the department within
> the Division of Mathematical, Life and Physical Sciences.  The
> appointments will be made in the department best suited for the
> qualifications of the successful candidates. I would be grateful if
> you could bring these opportunities to the attention of all
> potentially interested parties.
> Advertisements for the open positions are enclosed and copied below.
> With best regards
