interested in a plant physiologist.  Other botanists on staff include a
plant molecular systematist, a plant ecologist, a plant cell biologist and
a mycologist.  Please pass along the job announcement to any interested
students, colleagues, etc.

opening it,
I'll paste the key elements here:

the area of plant sciences with a focus in plant physiology.
	The candidate should be prepared to teach botany classes and
participate in general biology offerings for majors and non-majors.
Experience in Applied Plant Science would be a bonus.  We are looking
