I should like to bring to the attention of the readers of the Journal an opening we have with the Liberian Institute of the American Foundation for Tropical Medicine as Resident Director. As you doubtless know, the Liberian Institute is now in its initial phase of operation and has developed to the stage where we wish to place a full-time Director in charge.

The Liberian Institute is located in Harbel, Liberia, West Africa and is established as a research and training center in tropical medicine. The plant consists of a large, two story 2-wing laboratory building with twenty-four individual lab rooms. These lab rooms are furnished with modern laboratory furniture and each is equipped with water, gas, electricity and vacuum. In conjunction with the lab, there are several appurtenant buildings for animals, garage, workshop, etc.

Staff residential quarters consist of three 2-bedroom houses completely furnished and attractively constructed.
