Waging a war for talent

Take Jillian Buriak, for instance. Spend five minutes with the spritely, spiky-haired nanoscientist and you think you've arrived in the land of milk and honey. Two years ago, the Harvard-educated Buriak, 38, turned down a tenured position at Princeton, choosing instead to move to the University of Alberta. There, as the new senior research officer and Canada Research Chair in inorganic and nanoscale materials, she will play a key role in helping shape the new $120-million National Institute of Nanotechnology (NINT), a unique collaborative effort between the U of A, the National Research Council and the Alberta government. Why Edmonton? "I felt I could have an impact here," says the mother of two. "NINT's research infrastructure and instrumentation are world-class," says Buriak.
