in plants and who can participate in an interdisciplinary Ph. D.
program applying basic research in cellular and molecular biology
to environmental problems. A strong commitment to teach
undergraduate and graduate courses in cell biology, developmental
biology, or general education for non-science majors is expected.

independent research program, therefore a Ph.D. and postdoctoral
experience (or equivalent professional experience) in cellular,
developmental or molecular biology is required.
