The Department of Biology at The Pennsylvania State University invites  
applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant,  
Associate, or Full Professor level in Plant Biology, with research  
programs in molecular, cellular, and/or developmental aspects of plant  
biology. We particularly encourage applications from individuals whose  
work is related to energy storage in plants (including carbon  
partitioning; synthesis of cell walls, starch and lipids; and genetic  
control of these metabolic pathways) as well as other areas related to  
the physiology and development of land plants.  Penn State is an  
international center for plant biology research, with particular  
emphases in cell biology, development, genomics, ecology, and  
evolution. Penn State has an outstanding interdisciplinary plant  
biology graduate program (http://www.huck.psu.edu/education/plant-biology 
), excellent plant growth facilities, and a number of core resources  
that provide research support (http://www.huck.psu.edu/facilities),  
including bioimaging, molecular biology, genomics, and proteomics.  
Interaction with existing research programs is particularly  
encouraged. Prospective candidates should have a strong record of  
research accomplishments, ability to secure extramural grants, and a  
commitment to teaching undergraduates. Candidates should email a  
letter of application, curriculum vitae, research prospectus,  
statement of teaching interests, and names and contact information of  
at least three references, all as a single PDF document, to plantenergy4 from bio.psu.edu 
. Publications and manuscripts (not more than three) may also be  
submitted as separate PDF documents along with the application. Review  
of completed applications will begin November 23, 2009.

Penn State is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity and  
the diversity of its workforce.
