<x-flowed>LECTURER  (REF:  A67/02)
Plant Genomics/Functional Genomics

SALARY RANGE:   Level B  $53,722 - $63,797 p.a.

The University seeks to strengthen its research base in plant molecular
biology and genetics by establishing a new position in the area of plant
genomics/ functional genomics. This is a joint initiative of the faculties
of Natural and Agricultural Sciences and Life and Physical Sciences. The
post will be a joint appointment between the School of Plant Biology and
the School of Biomedical and Chemical Sciences.  The duties of this
tenurable appointment will be primarily research-based for the first three
years and thereafter will revert to a normal lectureship. Generous start-up
funding will be provided in a laboratory within the Biochemistry precinct
of the School of Biomedical and Chemical Sciences. Relocation to a new
building for Molecular and Chemical Sciences is anticipated early in 2005.

UWA's strong research base in plant physiology and biochemistry has
recently been strengthened with funding for gene analysis (real-time PCR,
microarray, etc) and proteomics equipment (including mass spectrometry) and
the construction of new growth facilities for transgenic plants. The
successful candidate will establish a competitive research programme to
complement existing research in the plant sciences (current strengths
include plant carbon and nitrogen metabolism, plant nutrition, and plant
responses to biotic and abiotic environmental stresses). Applicants should
have a strong record of research in molecular biology/genetics,
demonstrated ability in the area of genomics or functional genomics, a
commitment to collaborate with colleagues in cognate areas and a
willingness to supervise honours and postgraduate students. A PhD in
molecular biology, genetics, cell biology or related discipline is
essential. For further information regarding the position please contact
Professor David Day on (08) 93803325 or email dday at cyllene.uwa.edu.au.

CLOSING DATE:   Friday, 27 September 2002
