Biological Sciences at Duke University
Five tenure track faculty positions

Systematics
We seek a broadly trained systematic biologist with research interests in
vascular plants, algae, or lichenized fungi for a tenure track position as
Assistant Professor.  The systematic botany group has a long tradition of
research and training in flowering plants, mosses, algae, fungi, and
lichens, with strong links to the larger evolutionary biology program at
Duke University.  We are especially interested in candidates who use a
combination of collections-based, experimental, and molecular approaches,
and whose interests promote interactive links with evolutionary biologists,
molecular biologists, and ecologists.  The successful candidate will be
expected to develop an externally-funded research program, and to
participate in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
More information on our Programs can be found at
http://www.botany.duke.edu, http://www.zoology.duke.edu, and
http://www.env.duke.edu/index.html.  Applicants should provide 1) a CV, 2)
a letter detailing accomplishments, future research plans, and teaching
goals, 3) reprints of recent papers, and 4) arrange for three letters of
reference to be sent directly to:  Dr. A. Jonathan Shaw, The Plant
Systematics Search Committee, Department of Botany, 139 Biological Sciences
Building, Box 90338, Duke University, Durham, NC 27708-0338.  Tel.
919-660-7372.

Cellular and Developmental Biology
We seek two biologists with research interests in molecular aspects of
genetics, cell biology and/ or development. Applications at both Assistant
Professor and more senior levels will be considered. We are interested in
applicants who have made important research contributions, have the ability
to establish a strong independent research program, and who have a strong
commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching in an Arts and Science
Environment.  Successful candidates will join the Developmental, Cellular
and Molecular Biology Group in the new Levine Science Research Center.
Applicants should provide the information requested below  to The Cellular
and Developmental Search Committee at the address given below.

Plant Developmental Biology
We seek a biologist using genetic, biochemical and molecular approaches to
study aspects of plant development.  Successful candidates will be expected
to develop an externally-funded research program and to participate in
teaching undergraduate and graduate courses.  The successful candidate will
be  part of  the Developmental, Cellular and Molecular Group situated in
the new Levine Science Research Center, with a tenure track  appointment as
an Assistant Professor. Applicants should provide the information requested
below  to The Plant  Developmental Search Committee at the address given
below.

Plant Biology Using Functional Genomics
We seek a biologist using functional genomics to study plant biology.
Special interest will be shown in applicants focusing on structure-function
analyses of proteins and who are able to develop an externally-funded
research program.  The successful candidate will receive a tenure-track
appointment as Assistant Professor and will be expected to teach at the
undergraduate and graduate level.  Participation is also anticipated in the
newly formed Institute for Genomic Sciences and Policy. Applicants should
provide the information requested below  to The Plant Functional Genomics
Search Committee at the address given below.
