for a 11-month, tenure-track faculty position in the Department of
Nematology, emphasizing 75% research, and 25% teaching in molecular
biology.  Appointment level and salary to be commensurate with
experience.  The position requires a Ph. D. and demonstrated ability
to conduct independent research.  At least two years of postdoctoral
research experience with plant-parasitic nematodes is desirable.  The
successful applicant is expected to develop a molecular-based research
