Faculty Positions in Genetics
Department of Genetics
North Carolina State University

The Department of Genetics at North Carolina State University invites  
applications at the assistant professor level for two tenure-track  
faculty positions in genetics. Successful candidates will establish  
research programs that complement existing departmental research  
strengths in quantitative, evolutionary and developmental genetics.  
Preference will be given to applicants with research expertise in  
population genetics, systems genetics or epigenetics. Applicants  
should have a PhD or equivalent, be broadly trained with at least two  
years of productive post-doctoral research experience, embrace  
interdisciplinary research and have a commitment to student training.  
New faculty members are expected to develop and maintain vibrant,  
extramurally-supported research programs and contribute to  
departmental teaching. A competitive salary and startup package will  
be provided to ensure a successful research program.

Faculty in the Department of Genetics (http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/genetics/ 
) are engaged in basic genetic research using model organisms. The  
department has strong graduate and post-doc programs and will be home  
to a new undergraduate major in genetics starting in 2009. NCSU has  
outstanding facilities and programs for plant (http://www.ncsu.edu/phytotron/ 
) and animal (http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/brf/) research, genomics (http://gsl.cals.ncsu.edu/ 
) and bioinformatics (http://bioinformatics.ncsu.edu/).

To apply go to jobs.ncsu.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=82501, and

teaching interests, and arrange to have at least three letters of
