I would like to draw your attention to two openings for tenure-track 
faculty at the University of South Carolina. These positions are part of 
a recently funded multi-year plan for hiring in the general area of 
plant signaling.   The successful candidates will join an active group 
of researchers in plant biology 
(http://www.biol.sc.edu/~plant/PlantBiology/). 



STRUCTURE BIOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY
THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in the College of Arts and 
Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track position in Structural 
Biology and Biochemistry at the ASSISTANT PROFESSOR level. The 
successful applicant will be expected to develop and maintain a 
productive, extramurally funded research program in the broad area of 
structural biology including x-ray and electron crystallography, 
electron microscopy (HRTEM) and MS proteomics. New faculty would be 
expected to actively interact with the established groups working in 
plant virology, nanobiotechnology, plant signal transduction, and 
protein/nucleic acid interactions at the University of South Carolina. 
The candidate is also expected to have a strong commitment to teaching 
at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants should submit a 
letter of application, curriculum vitae, three letters of 
recommendation, and a description of research plans to Structural 
Biology Faculty Search Committee, Department of Chemistry and 
Biochemistry, University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC  29208.  The 
committee will begin reviewing applications November 15, 2006.  Homepage 
at http://www.chem.sc.edu/.  The University of South Carolina is an

are encouraged to apply. The University of South Carolina does not 
discriminate in educational or employment opportunities or decisions for 
qualified persons on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national 
origin, age, disability, sexual orientation or veteran status.



COMPUTATIONAL NANOSCIENCE

The University of South Carolina seeks to hire three tenure-track 
faculty members in computational nanoscience in one or more of the 
departments of Biological Sciences, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, 
Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, 
or Physics. The goal is a cluster hire of expertise independent of 
department location, although hires will be made into specific 
departmental tenure-track positions.  Successful candidates will have 
demonstrated the ability to conduct computational nanoscience research 
that augments and complements existing USC expertise in catalysis with 
special emphasis in fuel cell and hydrogen technologies; 
nanoelectronics; bio/nano particles; polymer nanocomposites; and 
mathematical models and computational approaches for understanding 
signaling networks in a cellular and organismal context. (see 
www.nano.sc.edu for more information).

Applicants should submit a letter of application, a vita, statements of 
research and teaching interests, names of three references, and copies 
of selected publications to the Chair of the Computational Nanoscience 
Search Committee, Office of the Dean, College of Engineering and 
Information Technology, University of South Carolina, Columbia SC 29208, 
or electronically to compunano at engr.sc.edu.  Review of applications will 
begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled.

The University of South Carolina does not discriminate in educational or 
employment opportunities or decisions for qualified persons on the basis 
of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual 
orientation or veteran status.
