    ISSUE DATE: JUNE 5, 2008

    DEADLINE FOR ADVERTISERS: MAY 29, 2008

    The upcoming Naturejobs Spotlight will raise awareness of Alabama's rapidly emerging biotech industry. This special feature in Nature offers Alabama research institutions and organizations a unique opportunity to recruit top-tier scientific talent while building their reputation among the local and international scientific research community.

    Alabama is home to seven research universities and over 90 life sciences companies that raised $104 million in capital and generated $622 million in total sales in 2006.* The state has produced six FDA approved cancer treatments with six additional drugs currently in clinical trials at Southern Research, based in Birmingham, Alabama.*

    Over the past two years, there have been new additions to the Alabama life sciences landscape including the Shelby Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Building, the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, and the Auburn University Research Park. These impressive new facilities are evidence of Alabama's rapidly growing biotech industry.

    The Spotlight on Alabama will be a valuable reference for researchers, students, and educators searching for career opportunities and events in Alabama and the surrounding area. It will be eagerly read by those drawn to the front pages of Nature's recruitment section.

    Job advertisements will also receive a complimentary 8-week posting on naturejobs.com and will be matched to all relevant content across nature.com. Event advertisements will receive a complimentary 8-week posting on natureevents.com – the events portal for Nature.
