Dear colleagues,

Apologies for any duplicate mailings.

The Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at the University  
of Massachusetts, Amherst invites applications from Ph.D.-level  
scientists for a tenure-track position at the level of ASSISTANT  
PROFESSOR. We seek candidates with research programs in topics that  
complement existing Departmental and campus strengths in cellular  
biochemistry, including signal transduction, membrane biology,  
metabolism, gene expression and regulation, and cytoskeletal  
organization. We are particularly interested in individuals who study  
plant systems.  The successful candidate will be expected to  
contribute to ongoing interdisciplinary programs focused on renewable  
energy, cellular engineering, and research at the interface of  
chemistry and biology. He/she will have access to students from  
several interdepartmental graduate programs and will be expected to  
participate in teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

The Five College Consortium, comprised of Smith College, Amherst  
College, Mount Holyoke College, Hampshire College, and the University  
of Massachusetts Amherst, provides a rich academic and intellectual  
environment. The Department is strongly committed to increasing the  
diversity of the faculty, student body, and curriculum.

Applicants should send curriculum vitae, a description of research  
interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent  
electronically to: Prof. Jennifer Normanly at bmbsearch from biochem.umass.edu 
  or BMB Search, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, LGRT 913, 710 N.  
Pleasant St., University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA 01003.  Review  
of applications will begin October 15, 2010 and continue until the  
position is filled.

The University of Massachusetts is an Affirmative Action/Equal  
Opportunity Employer.  Women and members of minority groups are  
encouraged to apply.

Sincerely,
Jennifer Normanly
