This advertisement is for a continued search for a suitable candidate for a tenure track position at the assistant or associate Professor level at Cornell University in the School of Integrative Plant Science, section Plant Biology.
Research should focus on aspects of plant metabolism, metabolic networks, metabolomics, natural plant products or natural variation of plant metabolism.
Cornell University Assist./Assoc. Professor in Plant Metabolomics
The School of Integrative Plant Science at Cornell University ( http://sips.cals.cornell.edu/ ) is searching for a strong candidate for a tenure track position at the assistant or associate Professor level in Plant Metabolomics. Application review will begin on March 7, 2016 but applications are welcome after this date, until the position is filled. Submit applications to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5922
The successful candidate will develop an internationally-recognized and well-funded research program in Plant Metabolomics that leverages technological innovation and high-resolution instrumentation to elucidate metabolic pathways and identify critical plant primary or secondary compounds. Possible research areas include, but are not limited to: (1) identification of metabolic networks, evaluation of metabolic flux and regulatory control points, and integration of such information in a 'systems' context; (2) the phylogenetic diversity of plant primary and secondary compounds; (3) plant metabolites in an environmental and ecological context, e.g. in relation to biotic or abiotic stress; and (4) the potential for utilization of such compounds in biomedicinal or nutraceutical applications or for the improvement of crops.
Questions about the application process can be addressed to Ms. Karin Jantz, Section of Plant Biology (kpg2 from cornell.edu<mailto:kpg2 from cornell.edu>). Questions about the position can be addressed to Search Committee Chair, Professor Klaas van Wijk (kv35 from cornell.edu<mailto:kv35 from cornell.edu>), SIPS, Plant Biology Section, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, tel: 1-607-255 3664
