The Department of Molecular Biosciences at the University of 
Kansas will recruit extensively over the next five years. We invite 
applications for three tenure-track positions in three research areas 
at the ASSISTANT and/or AS-SOCIATE PROFESSOR levels to 
begin Fall 2002. Candidates must have postdoctoral experience, 
demonstrated excellence in research and be committed to quality 
undergraduate and graduate education. Applicants at the 
Associate Professor level must have external funding. New faculty 
will have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty in the many 
interdisciplinary programs within the Department and University. (1) 
Biochemist/Structural Biologist: Research interests should be in 
the area of macromolecular structure and function, e.g., dynamics 
and structure of membrane proteins/receptors, nucleic acid binding 
proteins or protein-protein interactions. Required:  Ph.D. (or 
equivalent degree) in Biochemistry/Biophysics or a related field.
