              TWO FACULTY POSITIONS IN MICROBIOLOGY

               UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT AT STORRS

     The Department of Molecular and Cell Biology seeks

microbiologists to fill tenure-track positions beginning

September 1996.  Appointments will be made at the Assistant or

Associate Professor rank.  One position is for a microbiologist

with expertise and research interests in bacterial pathogenesis

or symbiosis.  The appointee is to develop and teach an

undergraduate course focused on pathogenic bacteria.  The second

position is for a microbiologist with expertise and research

interests in the biochemistry, genetics, and physiology of

prokaryotes.  This appointee will teach introductory

microbiology.  Appointees will be expected to participate in the

graduate teaching program in microbiology.

     The microbiology faculty research programs study the

biochemistry, diversity, ecology, evolution, genetics,

pathogenicity, and physiology of several prokaryotic groups.  The

appointment of individuals with similar perspectives is

anticipated.  The Storrs campus, situated in rural northeastern

Connecticut, is the main campus of UConn.

     Applicants should have postdoctoral research experience, a

strong research record, and plans to establish a vigorous program

in an environment of collegial interactions.  Excellence in

teaching and research are highly valued by the Department and

University.

     A curriculum vitae, statement of research interests and

plans, and three letters of recommendation should be sent to

Professor Edward Leadbetter, Chairman, Microbiology Search

Committee, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, University

of Connecticut, Storrs, CT  06269-2131.

     Review of applications will begin after publication of this

notice and continue until both positions are filled.  We

encourage applications from underrepresented groups including

minorities, women, and people with disabilities.
