Department of Biological Sciences

Edmonton, Alberta - Canada

Department of Biological Sciences at University of Alberta. It came into existence with the merger of five former departments (Botany, Entomology, Genetics, Microbiology and Zoology) on July 1, 1994. The Department of Biological Sciences is the largest and one of the most diverse on campus in terms of the research interests of its academic staff. This diversity has resulted in numerous collaborations among PIs as they discover common themes and approaches within their research programs. The Department currently has over 70 professors, 20 adjunct professors and 20 professors emeritus, along with a graduate student population of nearly 300 and 70 departmental support staff. Over 95% of the academic staff in the Department have NSERC or CIHR funding, with the average grant monies being in excess of $200,000 per investigator.

Our Mission : The primary objective of a university is scholarship. It suffuses everything we do as academics, teachers, researchers and students. Scholarship requires a deep knowledge of a subject, reflective thought, clarity in describing principles and objectives and the ability to impart a love for a subject to others. Becoming a scholar is a life-long process, taken on by the individual, and aided by the infrastructure, people and opportunities an university affords. Scholarship develops slowly; consequently, we have an elaborate system for establishing benchmarks for achieving academic excellence. As we move from undergraduate to Professor Emeritus, we should continually strive to achieve ever higher levels of scholarship if the University of Alberta is to be "indisputably recognized as one of the top universities in the world". Consequently, the DBS is committed to providing the opportunities for the development of scholarship at each stage in our academic careers and providing the rigorous assessment of our progress that is the hallmark of a great University.
