Dear Colleagues,

The Department of Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics
(http://www.life.umd.edu/CBMG/) at the University of Maryland is
searching for a molecular geneticist working on a fundamental problem in
biology using a model plant, algal or microbial system and the tools of
comparative genomics (see ad below).  We are especially interested in
recruiting a new colleague who will fit well with the existing research
strengths in the department.  We have already organized two overlapping
groups of outstanding faculty in molecular genetics from the department,
the UM campus, and the greater Washington DC area.  The GEMS group
(http://www.life.umd.edu/labs/GEMS/) is a highly interactive group
working on all eukaryotic model systems, while the ATRIUM group
(http://www.life.umd.edu/labs/ATRIUM/index.html) is specifically focused
on Arabidopsis research.  As part of UM's commitment to substantially
enhancing the College of Life Sciences, the construction of a large
research building is scheduled for 2006 completion.  Ample opportunities
for research collaboration exist with prominent researchers at the UM
Biotechnology Institute and the nascent UM Center for Bioinformatics and
Computational Biology as well as at NIH, USDA, TIGR and other nearby
research institutes.  Of course, the Washington DC area is a very
appealing place to live with unrivaled cultural, artistic and historical
resources and beautiful natural areas
(http://www.life.umd.edu/CBMG/metro.html).  We encourage all qualified
applicants to apply for this position.
