                    PLANT GENOMICS AT CORNELL UNIVERSITY

As part of a university-wide genomics initiative, Cornell University in
partnership with the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research and
USDA/ARS is soliciting applications from outstanding candidates for faculty
and staff scientist positions in plant biochemistry/metabolism,
developmental biology, and genetics.  The appointees are expected to form
an interactive team utilizing genomic approaches and, as appropriate, the
latest techniques in biochemistry, genetics, analytical chemistry, and cell
biology.  Topics of interest include understanding fundamental mechanisms
in plant development or unraveling the catalytic and regulatory pathways by
which plants produce, accumulate and recycle primary and secondary
metabolites and determining the adaptive and nutritional properties of such
compounds.


                           FACULTY POSITIONS
               College of Agriculture and Life Sciences

Assistant Professor of Plant Biochemistry: Candidates are sought whose
research focuses on the characterization of fundamental metabolic and/or
signaling pathways essential to the growth and development of the plant
and/or to the plant's response to environmental stimuli or biological
stress, using functional genomics approaches. Contribution to the design
and teaching of a curriculum in plant biochemistry is expected. Applicants
should send curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and names of
at least three references to:  Plant Search Committee, 252 Emerson Hall,
Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853-1901, attn: Laurie Hanley
(ljh4 at cornell.edu).  phone 607 255-1655; fax 607 255-6683.  Position open
until filled;  review of applications to commence on May 30, 1999.

Assistant Professor of Plant Biochemistry: Candidates are sought whose
research deals with the identification and modification of biosynthetic
pathways responsible for production of secondary chemicals that are
involved in nutrition, plant responses to pathogens or the environment.
Contribution to the design and teaching of a curriculum in plant
biochemistry is expected. Applicants should send curriculum vitae,
statement of research interests, and names of at least three references to:
 Plant Search Committee, 252 Emerson Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY
14853-1901, attn: Laurie Hanley (ljh4 at cornell.edu).  phone 607 255-1655;
fax 607 255-6683.  Position open until filled;  review of applications to
commence on May 30, 1999.

Assistant Professor of Plant Developmental Biology: Candidates are sought
whose research focuses on the analysis of developmental processes in
plants. Those studying the molecular and genetic bases of development and
who employ genome-based methodologies will be viewed with particular
interest. Contribution to teaching in the area of plant developmental
biology is expected. Applicants should send curriculum vitae, statement of
research interests, and names of at least three references to:  Plant
Search Committee, 252 Emerson Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY

fax 607 255-6683.  Position open until filled;  review of applications to
commence on May 30, 1999.

Assistant Professor of Plant Developmental Biology and Evolution:
Candidates are sought whose research deals with the study of plant
development, especially in the context of molecular evolution.   Preference
will be given to candidates with a strong background in molecular and
developmental biology and who utilize modern genomic approaches to ask
interesting questions in developmental/evolutionary biology. Contribution
to teaching in the area of plant developmental biology/evolutionary biology
is expected. Applicants should send curriculum vitae, statement of research
interests, and names of at least three references to:  Plant Search
Committee, 252 Emerson Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853-1901,
attn: Laurie Hanley (ljh4 at cornell.edu).  phone 607 255-1655; fax 607
255-6683.  Position open until filled;  review of applications to commence
on May 30, 1999.

Assistant Professor of Plant Breeding/Genetics:  Candidates are also sought
to develop and direct an innovative program for the genetic improvement of
potato using techniques of genomics, cell/molecular biology, genetics, and
breeding.  The appointee will be a key member of an interdisciplinary group
working on pathogen/pest resistance in potato and will interact with other
Cornell programs working on genetics/genomics of solanaceous species.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae and statement of research
interests, and have at least three references sent to: Potato Search
Committee Chair, Department of Plant Breeding, Cornell University, Ithaca,
NY 14853-1901.  For additional information, see http://www.plbr.cornell.edu or
