Faculty Positions
Department of Biology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA


Plant Biology

The Department of Biology at The University of Pennsylvania expects 
to make a tenure track appointment in Plant Biology with a starting 
date of July 2006.  It is anticipated that this appointment will be 
made at the Assistant Professor level.  An appointment at the 
associate or full professor level with tenure might be available for 
an exceptionally well-qualified candidate.  The ideal candidate would 
have demonstrated expertise in both genetic and molecular approaches 
to problems in Plant Biology.  Specific areas of interest include, 
but are not limited to, epigenetics, evolution, development, 
population genetics and plant-pathogen interactions.  The successful 
candidate will be associated with the Plant Science Institute of the 
University of Pennsylvania.  Candidates will be expected to teach at 
the undergraduate and graduate levels in addition to maintaining a 
vigorous, independent research program.

Applicants are encouraged to email their cover letter, CV, 
description of research interests and up to three reprints as pdf 
files to: PennPlantBiologySearch at sas.upenn.edu with Plant Biology in 
the Subject line.    Alternatively, these documents may be sent to: 
Plant Biology Search, Department of Biology, University of 
Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6018. 

Applicants at the Assistant Professor level should also arrange for 
at least three letters of reference to be sent to the email address 
above (as pdf files) or to the postal address.  Review of 
applications will begin December 1, 2005 and continue until the 
position is filled.



Cell Biology

We seek a colleague employing modern methods to study fundamental 
problems in cell biology using any experimental system (animal, 
fungal, plant, microbial).  Possible areas of interest include but 
are not limited to: cytoskeleton organization and dynamics; cellular 
adhesion and motility; cell division and cell cycle regulation; 
signal transduction, cell growth, survival and death; organelle 
organization and membrane trafficking; cell-cell or host-pathogen 
interactions.

Applicants are expected to have demonstrated excellence and 
productivity in research and a desire to teach at the undergraduate 
and graduate levels.  We anticipate that this appointment will be 
made at the Assistant Professor level, but outstanding senior 
candidates will be given serious consideration.

Applicants are encouraged to email their cover letter, CV, 
description of research interests and up to three reprints as pdf 
files to: PennBiologySearch at sas.upenn.edu with Cell Biology in the 
Subject line.    Alternatively, these documents may be sent to:  Cell 
Biology Search, Department of Biology, University of Pennsylvania, 
Philadelphia, PA 19104-6018. 

Applicants at the Assistant Professor level should also arrange for 
at least three letters of reference to be sent to the email address 
above (as pdf files) or to the postal address.  Review of 
applications will begin November 1, 2005 and continue until the 
position is filled.
