Cereon Genomics' mission is to apply genomics technology to transform
agriculture...
making plants hardier, naturally disease- and pest-resistant, and able to
grow in less hospitable conditions, all to improve the quality and quantity
of the world's food supply. Cereon has an unparalleled plant genomics
research facility in Cambridge, Massachusetts and is situated between MIT
and Harvard.

In little more than one year we have:
-Created a world class genomics research facility;
-Implemented key projects in genomics, bioinformatics, and automation
technology;
-Brought together a team of exceptional professionals at all levels.

We continue to hire in key areas of agricultural genomics, and seek focused,
motivated, and creative individuals to conduct research in gene discovery in
plant and microbial genomics with a strong focus on agricultural
applications.

Scientist Positions in Plant and Microbial Discovery Genomics
We seek colleagues in functional genomics for Arabidopsis, and
agriculturally relevant microorganisms. A Ph.D. and at least 2-3 years of
successful postdoctoral training in genetics, biochemistry, molecular plant
physiology, or a related field is preferred. Special consideration will be
given to applicants with strong training in more than one of these areas.
Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to work as
part of a multidisciplinary research team are essential.

Research Associate Positions in Plant Functional Genomics
We are seeking outstanding Research Associates in Plant Genomics to work
with scientists in discovery genetics, physical genomics, and
bioinformatics. Candidates should have an MS or BS and preferably 2+ years
of research experience, though we encourage highly motivated recent
graduates to apply. A working knowledge of molecular biology techniques and
familiarity with the use of computers in biology is required. Experience in
genetic mapping, mutant analysis, biochemistry, or natural products analysis
is highly desirable.

Cereon provides an unusually stimulating research environment, and offers
excellent compensation and a strong benefits package. A resume, including
contact information for three individuals who are willing to provide a
reference, should be sent to: Thomas J. Leahy, Cereon Genomics LLC, 45
Sidney Street, Cambridge, MA 02139, Fax: 607-551-1990. Applications will be
considered until the positions are filled. Cereon Genomics is an equal
opportunity/affirmative action employer.
