Plant Sciences Initiative at MSU - New Faculty Positions

Michigan State University seeks to hire three faculty members at the 
Assistant or Associate Professor level who are using integrative and 
molecular approaches such as functional genomics, proteomics, 
bioinformatics, metabolic profiling, flux modeling or subcellular 
imaging to study important problems in plant biology. Successful 
candidates will also participate in undergraduate and/or graduate 
teaching. We seek individuals exploring questions in plant 
development, cellular organization, nutritional enhancement, response 
to the environment, or host-pathogen interactions for the following 
positions:

Assistant/Associate Professor jointly appointed between the 
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB: 
<>www.bch.msu.edu) and the Department of Plant Biology (PLB: 
<>www.plantbiology.msu.edu) with potential for recurring research 
support pending negotiation.  For further information contact search 
committee co-chairs: Dr. Christoph Benning (BMB; 517-355-1609; 
benning at msu.edu) and Dr. Katherine Osteryoung (PLB; 517-355-4685; 
osteryou at msu.edu).

Assistant/Associate Professor in Horticulture (www.hrt.msu.edu) with 
the option of a joint appointment in Biochemistry and Molecular 
Biology, Crop and Soil Sciences, Entomology, Forestry, Plant Biology 
or Plant Pathology and potential for recurring research support 
pending negotiation.  For further information contact search 
committee chair: Dr. Rebecca Grumet (517-353-5568; grumet at msu.edu).

Assistant Professor in Plant Pathology (www.plantpathology.msu.edu)

Michigan State University has a large and vibrant community of plant 
biologists with research interests spanning all major areas in the 
plant sciences.  State-of-the-art analytical core facilities include 
the Genomics Technology Support Facility, Macromolecular Structure, 
Sequencing and Synthesis Facility, Mass Spectrometry/Proteomics 
Facility and Center for Advanced Microscopy.   Because of the 
opportunity for synergistic appointments, we encourage applications 
from candidates who are present or potential collaborators. 
Candidates must have a Ph.D. and post-doctoral experience in relevant 
areas.  The application should include:  cover letter (including 
preferred position(s) or home department(s)), C.V., statement of 
research interests and future directions, and three or more letters 
of reference.  Application materials for all positions should be 
addressed to: Plant Sciences Initiative, c/o Ms. Julie Oesterle, 
Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Michigan State 
University, East Lansing MI 48824, USA.  Review of application 
materials will begin on December 10, 2003 and continue until suitable 
candidates are identified.

MSU is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer.
