The Department of Genetics at North Carolina State University invites
applications at the assistant professor level for two tenure-track
faculty positions in genetics. Successful candidates will establish
research programs that complement existing departmental research
strengths in quantitative, evolutionary and developmental genetics.

population genetics, systems genetics or epigenetics. Applicants
should have a PhD or equivalent, be broadly trained with at least two
years of productive post-doctoral research experience, embrace
interdisciplinary research and have a commitment to student training.
New faculty members are expected to develop and maintain vibrant,
extramurally-supported research programs and contribute to
departmental teaching. A competitive salary and startup package will
be provided to ensure a successful research program.

department has strong graduate and post-doc programs and will be home
to a new undergraduate major in genetics starting in 2009. NCSU has
