BOTANY AT UVM:
 
     The Department of Botany has a prominent history of both excellent
     undergraduate and graduate education and active research in a broad
     array of plant biology disciplines.  Our emphases are in plant
     molecular biology, physiology, ecology and evolution.  Most of the
     faculty of the Department are located in Marsh Life Science Building,
     a modern facility with teaching and research instrumentation to match.
     Other facilities of the University directly of interest to those
     conducting teaching and research in Botany include: the Proctor Maple
     Research Center, the University Horticultural Farm, the University
     Farm, the Pringle Herbarium, extensive natural holdings of diverse
     ecological types, the School of Natural Resources and the College of
     Medicine.
 
     The candidate should benefit from interactions with a large number of
     successful scholars with diverse interests in the area of molecular
     genetics and molecular biology including Departments of Agricultural
     Biochemistry, Animal Sciences, Biochemistry, Microbiology and
     Molecular Genetics, Nutritional Sciences, Plant and Soil Science,
     Zoology, and interdisciplinary programs in Cell and Molecular Biology
     (graduate) and Biological Sciences (undergraduate).  Both the
     department and the University as a whole enjoy extensive collabora-
     tions between faculty in both research and teaching functions.
 
 
THE UVM/BURLINGTON COMMUNITY:
 
     The University of Vermont is located in Burlington in the rural Lake
     Champlain Valley, nestled between the Adirondack State Park in New
     York (the largest wilderness park in the United States) and the Green
     Mountains of Vermont.  Opportunities for outdoor activities abound
     during all four seasons of the year.  Additionally, the University
     of Vermont and the population center of greater Burlington attract a
     diverse array of cultural activities.  Also, several large metropolitan
     centers are within easy travel by auto or plane (Montreal, 100 mi.,
     Boston, 225 mi. and New York City 275 mi.).
