Arizona State University is inaugurating Project Ingenhousz, a
University-wide project designed to enhance long-term interdisciplinary
research and education in the rapidly developing field of light-driven
biological and chemical processes and to promote the application of this
knowlege to problems in science and engineering.  Basic and applied
interdisciplinary research on light-driven reactions such as photosynthesis
holds great promise and offers broad impact in diverse areas such as the
development of novel light-driven technologies and the optimal use of solar
energy. This is particularly relevant in view of limitations in energy and
food sources and of increasing CO2 and pollution levels. Capitalizing on
its leading position in photosynthesis and related fields, Arizona State
University is poised to expand and broaden this area of excellence through
a University-wide initiative.

Senior Faculty Positions:	   As one of the first steps in this
process, applications are now being  accepted for three senior-level
tenured faculty appointments.  These faculty will play leading roles in
expanding the scope and depth of light-mediated biological and chemical
interdisciplinary research at Arizona State University.  These faculty are
expected to have vigorous, highly visible research programs and to help
collaboratively define and develop novel and imaginative research fields in
this area.  Some of these fields include light-mediated aspects of:
Molecular Electronics, Biomolecular Devices, Biotechnology, Bioremediation
and Biomedical Research.  Joint research endeavors with industry are
welcomed. Appointments will be made in Departments most suitable for the
successful candidates.

Postdoctoral Fellowships:   To catalyze interactive research between groups
in engineering, the chemical and life sciences, and industry, applications
are also being solicited from Ph.D.-level scientists and engineers to fill
approximately 6-10 postdoctoral research associate positions.  Successful
candidates will work on collaborative projects involving two or more
interdisciplinary research groups.  The initial appointments will be 1.5 -
2 years.  Appointments may be extended when warranted. Examples of projects
are available on the website specified below.

Industrial Liaison Position:   Project Ingenhousz is expected to lead to
the development of extensive collaborations between the basic and applied
sciences and industry. To aid in this process, we are accepting
applications for an administrative professional (industry liaison). The
successful applicant is expected to have academic and industrial experience
in a field related to the project, and/or to have extensive industrial
experience and a keen interest in science.

Application Procedure:   Applicants must send a letter, a detailed
curriculum vitae, and a list of the names, addresses and telephone numbers
of three professional references to: Patrick J. Burkhart, Office of the
Senior Vice President and Provost, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ
85287-3403.  First screening of these applications will begin July 1, 1997

ASU is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
