I would like to post the following text on your news group.
Thank you


Several faculty positions are available at Cornell University as part 
of a continuing campus-wide Genomics Initiative that includes the 
Boyce Thompson Institute and the USDA-ARS Federal Nutrition 
Laboratory.  Below is the text of the advertisement that appeared in 
the September 28, 2001 issue of Science.
Please bring these positions to the attention of qualified scientists.


PLANT GENOMICS AT CORNELL UNIVERSITY

As part of a university-wide genomics initiative at Cornell 
University is seeking applications for seven positions in plant 
genomics.  Successful candidates will be located in various 
departments/units on the Ithaca campus but will be part of the larger 
Cornell Genomics Initiative. They will have access to multiple 
genomics resources on campus and encouraged to form collaborations 
throughout campus.  For more information on the Cornell Genomics 
Initiative see: www.genomics.cornell.edu

Assistant Professor Positions
Plant Developmental Biology:  Applications are sought from candidates 
whose research focuses on the molecular genetic analysis of plant 
developmental processes, preferably from an evolutionary perspective. 
The successful candidate will be based in the Department of Plant 
Biology and is expected to contribute to teaching in the area of 
plant developmental biology.
Plant Molecular Genetics:  Applications are sought for a molecular 
geneticist working with either maize or Medicago truncatula.  The 
successful candidate will be based in the Department of Plant 
Breeding and is expected to develop an active basic research program 
with potential long-term applications to crop species.  Preference 
will be given to candidates interested in forming interactive 
networks with other researchers working in either grasses or legumes. 
Responsibilities include teaching a course in plant 
genetics/genomics/molecular biology.
Plant Molecular Biology:  Applications are sought for a molecular 
biologist to work on molecular and physiological aspects of plant 
senescence with potential long-term applications to plants important 
in horticulture.  Applications from candidates working on model 
systems (e.g. Arabidopsis) are welcomed.  The successful candidate 
will be based in the Department of Horticulture, and is expected to 
teach a modern postharvest course at the undergraduate level and to 
participate in interdisciplinary graduate education.
Applicants for these three positions should send a cover letter 
stating the position(s) for which they wish to be considered, a 
curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and the names of 
at least three references to: Plant Genomics Search Committee, 520 
Bradfield Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853-1901, attn: 
Laurie Hanley (ljh4 at cornell.edu; phone 607-255-1655; fax 
607-255-6683).
Cornell University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

Plant Molecular Biologist/Biochemist  at USDA-ARS/Cornell
The USDA-ARS Center for Health-Based Crop Genomics, which is part of 
the USDA-ARS Plant, Soil, and Nutrition Research Unit on the Cornell 
University campus in Ithaca, New York, is soliciting applications 
from outstanding candidates in the areas of plant molecular biology 
and/or plant biochemistry. The research associated with this position 
will focus on plant genomic approaches to study the accumulation 
and/or synthesis of inorganic and organic constituents of plant foods 
that impact human health and nutrition either through diet or as 
pharmaceuticals/ nutraceuticals. Research may also deal with the 
genetic/molecular control of toxic mineral accumulation in plant 
foods. The successful candidates will be part of the Cornell Genomics 
Initiative; as such, he/she will participate as an adjunct faculty 
member in an appropriate Cornell University department. The salary 
range for this position is $51,927-$80,279 per annum. Candidates must 
have U.S. citizenship and at least a doctorate degree in plant 
molecular biology or related disciplines such as plant biochemistry, 
plant physiology, or molecular genetics.
To obtain additional information and application forms, visit our web 
site at www.afm.ars.usda.gov/divisions/hrd/hrdhomepage/empopp.htm  or 
call Sharon Maio at 607-255-5487. Applications in response to this ad 
must include the Vacancy Announcement Number ARS-X1E-1525 and be 
postmarked by December 3, 2001. Review of applications will begin 
November 15 and will continue until the position is filled.
ARS is an equal opportunity employer. Women and minorities are 
encouraged to apply.

Plant Molecular Biologists at the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research
The Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) for Plant Research, a 
not-for-profit organization at Cornell University, invites 
applications for three faculty positions, at any level, although 
preference will be given to junior applicants. We are seeking 
scientists who use molecular, biochemical, genetic, cell biological, 
genomic and/or proteomic approaches to elucidate mechanisms 
underlying plant-microbe/insect interactions, chemical/molecular 
ecology, or plant development.  Research emphases of interest 
include, but are not limited to, gene expression, signal 
transduction, and primary or secondary metabolism.  The successful 
candidates will be part of the Cornell Genomics Initiative; as such, 
they will participate as adjunct faculty members in an appropriate 
Cornell University department.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a three- to five-page 
statement of research interests, and the names of four references to 
Dr. Gary Blissard, Chair, Plant Molecular Biology Search Committee, 
Boyce Thompson Institute, Ithaca, New York 14853; e-mail 
gwb1 at cornell.edu. Review of applications will begin November 15 and 
will continue until the positions are filled.  See 
http://bti.cornell.edu for more information about BTI.
BTI is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
