Tenure-Track Position-Plant Molecular Biologist
Department of Biology, Syracuse University

The Department of Biology invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position to be filled by fall 2010 in plant cell molecular biology, with emphasis on biofuels. The areas of research include but are not limited to energy storage in plants, cell walls, metabolic pathways, biomass, biotic and abiotic stress resistance etc.   The applicant's interests should augment existing Biology Department strengths (see department website (http://biology.syr.edu/).  Candidates are expected to develop an independent, sustainable research program and contribute to departmental teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Competitive salary, start-up funds and new laboratory space will be provided.


The individual filling this position will be part of an interdisciplinary initiative in biofuels currently underway at Syracuse University.  There will be a concurrent faculty hire in the area of biofuels by the Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering.  Thus, this position offers an outstanding opportunity for collaboration with colleagues in Biology, Biomedical and Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, as well those at the State University of New York-Environmental Science & Forestry (http://www.esf.edu/). These two institutions (Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF) form one nearly contiguous campus. The Syracuse University Biology Department recently moved to the new 110,000 net sq ft Life Sciences Complex (LSC), which we share with the Department of Chemistry. The LSC features generous, well-appointed research laboratories designed to promote interaction, and the option to customize a component of research space. In addition, LSC has a brand new 5000 sq ft state-of-the-art greenhouse on the roof.

To apply, candidates should visit www.sujobopps.com<http://www.sujobopps.com> to complete a Dean/Senior Executive/ Faculty application form and attach a current curriculum vitae plus (1) a cover letter outlining the candidate's qualifications, (2) a brief statement of research interests and future goals, and (3) a summary of teaching experience and teaching interests as a single PDF file.

Please include the name, address, phone number and e-mail address of each of your references in your cover letter.  Personal inquiries may be directed to:
