FACULTY POSITIONS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF PLANT BIOLOGY
  UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, TWIN CITIES

The Department of Plant Biology is participating in the University of
Minnesota's interdisciplinary initiatives in Molecular and Cellular Biology
and in Evolutionary Biology. Over the next several years, we will recruit
13 new scientists who will join a
  25-member faculty, 7 of whom are recent hires in the areas of genomics,
evolution and plant development. A large and diverse community of
developmental biologists at the University includes world-class scientists
studying Arabidopsis, worms, flies, zebra fish and mice and provides a
supportive environment and access to a full array of expertise. Genomics
hires will have a large group of colleagues working on genomics of crops
and plant model systems, as well as a growing bioinformatics and microbial
genomics community. In addition, a new building, housing scientists working
in plant and microbial genomics, is planned for completion in early 2003.
All new hires will be considered for inclusion in the Plant Molecular
Genetics Institute and/or the Center for Microbial and Plant Genomics
allowing a broader base for interaction at the University.

Two Positions in Plant Developmental Biology

  We are seeking broadly trained individuals whose research focuses on the
mechanisms of plant development using molecular, cellular and/or genetic
methods.


Three Positions in Genomics, Proteomics and/or Bioinformatics

Applications are sought from scientists using genomic, proteomic and/or
bioinformatic methods to study plant, fungal, or algal evolution, cell
biology, physiology, molecular biology, plant-microbe interactions,
biochemistry, and/or genetics.

For both the Department is accepting applications for tenure-track
positions at the level of Assistant Professor. Applications will also be
considered from outstanding senior scientists at the Associate/Full
Professor level.

Successful candidates will be expected to develop a strong, externally
funded research program, contribute to the teaching programs of the
Department, and participate in professional service. All candidates must
have a Ph.D. or international equivalent and a demonstrated research
emphasis in plant developmental biology or genomics. Required background
includes post-doctoral training and a strong publication record. Successful
candidates will receive a substantial start-up package and a salary
commensurate with their experience. Please send a curriculum vitae,
statement of research and teaching interests, and three letters of
recommendation to: Plant Development or Genomics Search Committee,
Department of Plant Biology, University of Minnesota, 220 BioScience
Center, 1445 Gortner Ave., St. Paul, MN 55108. Review of applications will
begin on December 3, 2001 and will continue until these positions are
filled. For more information concerning the Department and these positions,
