A tenure-track position (80% research and 20% teaching) is available 
at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level beginning August 
2, 2004.  The successful candidate is expected to develop a vigorous 
and independent research program to address important problems in 
plant biology (e.g. application of molecular/biochemical genetics to 
study and manipulate plant chromosomes; comparative and computational 
genomics; plant microbe interactions).  Opportunities exist for 
research collaborations with faculty in the department and in related 
departments through the Institute of Biomedical Sciences and 
Biotechnology.  The successful candidate will be expected to 
participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching including a course 
that integrates classical plant breeding and molecular genetic 
technologies. The position requires a Ph.D. degree in plant genetics 
or a related field and documented experience in 
cytogenetics/molecular genetics.  Candidates are expected to have 
postdoctoral training and must demonstrate excellence in research and 
the communication skills necessary to be an effective teacher.  In 
addition, the successful candidate must have an ability to attract 
extramural funding.

The salary will depend upon qualifications and experience.  Review of
