MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF BIOCHEMISTRY

The Department of Biochemistry at Michigan State University seeks
applications for a tenure-track position at the ASSISTANT or ASSOCIATE
PROFESSOR level in the area of GENETIC ENGINEERING OF PLANT METABOLISM WITH
THE OBJECTIVE OF DEVELOPING NEW PLANTS OR PLANT PRODUCTS.  This is one of
six new positions intended to further enhance the position of Michigan
State University as a leader in the plant sciences.  Applicants must have a
Ph.D. and postdoctoral research experience that demonstrates productivity
and gives evidence of potential for independent research.  The successful
applicant will participate in the Departmental Program in Plant
Biochemistry, an area of research emphasis within the Biochemistry
Department.  Other areas of strength in the department include Programs in
the Biochemistry of the Cell Nucleus and in Protein Structure, Function and
Design.  Thus, the department provides a stimulating environment and areas
for collaboration.  In addition, the successful candidate will participate
in interdisciplinary interactions with plant scientists in other
departments and at the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory.
	The Department of Biochemistry occupies a modern research building with
well-equipped research and teaching laboratories and support facilities,
and has vigorous undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral training
programs.  Excellent greenhouse space is readily available in close
proximity to the Biochemistry Building.
	Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae and a description of
research
accomplishments and future interests, and have three letters of
recommendation sent on their behalf to Dr. William L. Smith, Chairperson,
Department of Biochemistry, Box P, Michigan State University, East Lansing,

increase the diversity of its ranks, and accordingly, candidates from
groups currently underrepresented in academic science are encouraged to
apply.  To ensure consideration, applications should be received by
December 8, 1998.  Further information about the Department of Biochemistry
is available at www.bch.msu.edu.
