Sitlington Chair in Molecular Plant Biology

The Oklahoma State University (OSU) Division of Agricultural Sciences and
Natural Resources invites applications at the Associate or Full Professor
level to fill the Sitlington Chair in Molecular Plant Biology. Applicants
should have a doctorate in a biological science and an internationally
recognized research program that focuses on fundamental mechanisms in
plant biology.  Research areas of interest include, but are not limited
to, biotic and abiotic stress, metabolic engineering, signal transduction,
genome evolution, development, and gene silencing.  Applicants with a
strong background in functional genomics are especially encouraged to
apply.

This full-time (11-month) position encompasses a 75% research and 25%
teaching effort.  A significant endowment is available to support ongoing
research activities.  The successful applicant is expected to: 1) develop
a strong, externally funded research program, 2) provide innovative
training at the undergraduate and graduate levels; and 3) foster strong
academic ties among 25 interdisciplinary research groups associated with
the OSU Plant Biotechnology Network (http://plantbionet.okstate.edu).
State-of-the-art research facilities at OSU include a Recombinant
DNA/Protein Resource Facility, Plant Transformation Facility, Hybridoma
Center, Microscopy Center with TEM, SEM and confocal microscopes, and an

for significant research collaborations with the Plant Biology Division of
the S.R. Noble Foundation in Ardmore, Oklahoma.  Preference will be given
to individuals who complement and enhance areas of research strength in
Oklahoma.
