The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina
is in the process of enhancing its strength in Plant Sciences, and
announces the availability of two tenure-track faculty positions in the
following areas:

1. PLANT MOLECUALR BIOLOGY.  Applications are invited in any area of plant
molecular, cellular, or developmental biology.  Individuals using
molecular, biochemical and/or genetic approaches to the study of signal
transduction or gene expression in plants are particularly encouraged to
apply.  Contact person:  Dr. Michael J. Dewey, Department of Biological
Sciences, University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC  29208
(email:dewey at biol.sc.edu)
2. PHYTOREMEDIATION.  Applications are invited from individuals using plant
genetic engineering strategies for phytoremediation.  The successful
candidate will collaborate with an EPA-funded team focusing on
dehaloperoxidases as remediating agents, and should be knowledgeable in
techniques of genetic manipulation in plants, including DNA transformation
and transgene expression.  Contact person:  Dr. Laszlo Marton, Department
of Biological Sciences, University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC  29208
(email: marton at biol.sc.edu)

Successful applicants will be expected to develop an active, collaborative,
and extramurally funded research laboratory, and to participate in the
teaching of both undergraduate and graduate students.  The Department
maintains a wide-range of core facilities that are readily available to all
faculty, including:  greenhouses, plant growth chambers:  oligonucleotide
synthesis and automated DNA sequencing services; light, electron, and
confocal microscopy.  Further information about the Department can be
obtained at our website (http://www.biol.sc.edu).  Interested individuals
should send updated curriculum vitae, along with a research plan and three
letters of recommendation, to the appropriate contact person listed above.
Review of applications for both positions will begin on December 1, 1999.
The University of South Carolina is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
