Arabinetters, please take note of the following advertisement for a 
tenure-track faculty position.

The Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology (BCMB) Department 
at the University of Tennessee seeks to fill a tenure-track position 
at the assistant professor level to begin August 2005.  Applications 
from candidates who will take genetic/genomic approaches to problems 
in plant molecular/cellular biology are particularly welcome. The 
successful candidate for this position will join a recently 
consolidated group in plant molecular & cellular biology within the 
BCMB Department and will have opportunities to interact with other 
plant biologists in the College of Arts and Sciences and the College 
of Agriculture and Natural Resources, as well as cell biologists, 
geneticists and structural biologists elsewhere on campus and at the 
nearby Oak Ridge National Laboratory.  The University of Tennessee is 
the major state institution for training and education of 
undergraduate and graduate students and the person filling this 
position will share with other biologists teaching responsibilities 
in both undergraduate and graduate programs, particularly in plant 
physiology, and molecular and cellular biology.  Required 
qualifications include a Ph.D. and postdoctoral experience in 
relevant areas of plant biology, evidence of significant scientific 
productivity, and a commitment to an integrated program of teaching 
and research.  Interested candidates should send a resume, a 
description of the proposed research program, and the names and phone 
numbers of three individuals who can provide letters of reference to: 
Ms. Julia Collins, Plant Biology Search Committee, BCMB Department,
