Iowa State University, Ames

The Department of Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Molecular Biology 
(BBMB) (www.bb.iastate.edu) at Iowa State University invites 
applications from outstanding candidates for two tenure-track 
Assistant Professor positions in the area of plant biochemistry. 
These positions are part of the new Plant Sciences Institute 
(www.plantsciences.iastate.edu), which represents a major commitment 
by the state and the university to improve its already strong 
position in basic plant science research.  The Department of BBMB 
offers excellent facilities and an interactive research environment 
including plant biochemistry, molecular structure determination, 
enzymology, metabolic analysis, molecular biology, signal 
transduction, functional genomics, and computational biology. 
Preference will be given to candidates who clearly demonstrate the 
potential to develop and lead a nationally prominent, competitively 
funded program within this research environment, and who display a 
commitment to excellence in teaching at the graduate and/or 
undergraduate level.  High quality laboratory space and a generous 
startup package will be made available.  In addition, the successful 
applicants will have access to a state-of-the-art metabolomics 
research laboratory recently funded by $2.3M from the university and 
the W. M. Keck Foundation (www.wmkeck.org). 
Candidates should hold the Ph.D. or equivalent degree and have 
postdoctoral experience.   Applications should include a cover 
letter, a curriculum vitae, a description of research accomplishments 
and planned future proposals, a statement of teaching interests, and 
three letters of recommendation sent under separate cover.  To
