NEMATODE-PLANT INTERACTIONS, FACULTY POSITION

We are trying to cast as broad a net as possible for applicants for a
new faculty position to study any aspect of plant-nematode interactions,
preferably at the molecular level.  We already have an applied
nematologist, so the applicant need only be concerned with basic
research (no extension duties).  This could be a very
interesting field with the fascinating developmental changes that occur
in both the plant and the nematode, but very little is known about
changes in gene expression, and molecular signals involved, etc.  The
fact that nematodes are economically important should help in obtaining
funding, and good funding opportunities are available from state
commodity boards.  Even if you don't meet all the requirements described in the
offical job announcement (below), please consider applying if interested
or contact me at: wamiller at iastate.edu

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF PLANT NEMATOLOGY
PLANT PATHOLOGY DEPT.    IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY

Applications are invited for a 12 month, tenure track, 90% research-10%
teaching position in plant nematology.  The successful applicant will be
expected to develop a nationally recognized, extramurally funded
research program on plant parasitic nematodes and their interactions
with plants at a molecular, genetic, biochemical or population level.
Research efforts may complement existing programs at Iowa State in plant
nematology or plant molecular biology.  Teaching responsibilities
include a comprehensive gradute level course in plant nematology every
two years, participation in other graduate level courses, and
supervision of graduate students.

QUALIFICATIONS:  A Ph.D. with graduate or postgraduate
experience in plant nematology.  Applicants should possess excellent
communication and teaching skills.

TO APPLY:  Submit a letter of application, statement of research
and teaching interests, curriculum vitae, transcripts, selected
reprints, and names and addresses of at least 3 references to:
	Dr. Thomas C. Harrington, Chair
	Plant Pathology Department
	351 Bessey Hall
	Iowa State University
	Ames,  IA  50011-1020

DEADLINE:  November 15, 1994, or until position is filled.

IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY - AFFIRMATIVE ACTION EMPLOYER

Iowa State has a major effort in biotechnology which includes providing
substantial start-up funds to new investigators.  Active
interdepartmental programs in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental
Biology,  Genetics,  Plant Physiology and Molecular Biology, and Signal
Transduction provide ample opportunities for cross-disciplinary 
interactions and provide access to large pools of graduate students with
diverse interests.  Successful applicant's lab would be on a floor with 7 other
plant molecular biology labs and a well-equipped multiuser facility.
