The Department of Botany and Plant Pathology at Purdue University is
seeking outstanding applicants with strong records of research
accomplishment for two tenure-track assistant professor positions in the
area of functional genomics. These academic year (10-month) appointments
will expand and strengthen basic plant pathology in the department and
support Purdue=EDs overall initiative in plant genomics. The successful
applicants will be expected to develop strong, externally funded
research programs that address relevant questions regarding
plant-pathogen interactions, such as molecular and genetic mechanisms of
disease resistance in crops or model systems, or mechanisms of
pathogenicity and virulence in plant pathogens. Teaching
responsibilities will include undergraduate and graduate courses in
plant pathology as well as mentoring graduate students. A Ph. D. in
plant pathology or related discipline is required and post-doctoral
experience is desirable. Applicants should submit their curriculum
vitae, a short statement of research interests, a statement of teaching
interests and philosophy, and the names and contact information of four
references to:

Dr. Ray Martyn
Head, Department of Botany and Plant Pathology
1155 Lilly Hall
Purdue University
West Lafayette, IN 47907-1155

Applications should be received by October 31, 2001, to ensure full
consideration. The Department of Botany and Plant Pathology is a
multidisciplinary unit comprised of research, teaching and extension
programs in plant pathology, weed science, plant physiology, and plant
molecular biology.

Purdue University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.


Please note that these positions are targeted at basic scientists
working on plant-pathogen interactions and that working on a model
system is  not a problem. The School of Agriculture at Purdue houses a
thriving Arabidopsis community and I would strongly encourage people
working on plant-pathogen interactions using Arabidopsis to apply for
these positions.

Best wishes,


Robert E. Pruitt, Associate Professor
Botany and Plant Pathology
