On October 4, 1996 the following advertisement ran in Science.  There
appears to be a reluctance for plant people to apply because of the
department name.  Plant people will be seriously considered for this
position and are encouraged to apply.  The department contains a number of
plant people already and there is ample opportunity to interact with members
of the Agronomy, Botany, Plant Pathology and Horticulture Departments,
particularly through interdepartmental programs on campus. We look foward to
your applications.
