BIOCHEMISTRY AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
Applications are invited for two tenure-track faculty positions in
the Department of Biochemistry at the rank of Assistant Professor.
Candidates with excellent training and accomplishments at the post-doctoral
level in eukaryotic molecular biology will be considered.
For one of the positions, we are seeking an exceptional candidate
who employs innovative approaches to investigate fundamental problems in
plant biochemistry and molecular biology. For the other position, all
research areas of eukaryotic biochemistry and molecular biology will be
considered, but preference will be given to individuals with expertise in
the application of biophysical approaches to problems related to
macromolecular structure, function, or assembly of complexes.
The successful candidates will be active participants in the
teaching programs of the department, which include undergraduate, graduate,
and medical curricula. A significant part of the evaluation of faculty
candidates will be the perceived effectiveness of the candidate as a teacher.
Competitive start up funds and excellent laboratory space will be
provided. University-wide support facilities include antibody production,
peptide and DNA synthesis and sequencing, mass spectrometry, macromolecular
NMR analyses, and the computing center. The life science research community
at Purdue numbers well over 100 investigators actively engaged in all aspects
of modern biological research.
Curriculum vitae, the names and addresses of three individuals who
can supply letters of reference, and a two-page summary of research
interests are required for an application. The screening of applications
will commence immediately and will continue until the positions are filled.
