Dear Arabidopsis Researchers. We are searching for a colleague to 
help us build  on our strength in plant molecular genetics in the 
Biology Department at IU Bloomington (see ad below). She or he would 
join  us on the third floor of the newly renovated Myers Hall, home 
of  the Indiana Molecular Biology Institute 
( At least one 
additional  plant molecular geneticist will be hired in the next few 
years, also to occupy contiguous space on this floor.
The Biology Department is a collegial  and highly interactive group 
with outstanding  faculty working in the areas of developmental 
biology, molecular biology,  microbiology, biochemistry,  genomics, 
and evolutionary biology. In  addition  the University is about to 
begin  construction of a 80,000 sq. ft. building devoted to new 
initiatives in biochemistry, proteomics, and genomics. This  building 
will be directly adjacent to the existing Myers Hall and Jordan Hall 
homes of  the Biology Department.
Bloomington is a liberal and lively town situated in the  beautiful 
forested hills  of southern Indiana. If you are looking for a 
position that combines a strong scientific environment and a 
beautiful location, we encourage you to  apply.
