The Department of Biology invites applications for a tenure track
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR position in the area of plant molecular biology.
Candidates should be investigating fundamental questions specific to
plant biology at a mechanistic level.
IU-Bloomington is significantly expanding in the life sciences. These
efforts include construction of two major research buildings, a new
interdepartmental initiative in Biochemistry and Biophysics, and
numerous recent hires that have greatly expanded our strengths in the
areas of microbiology, biochemistry, structural biology, cell and
developmental biology, molecular evolution, and ecology. We are now
expanding in the plant sciences. We are pleased to announce that Dr.
Mark Estelle will be joining our department in the summer of 2002,
occupying the Miller Chair in Plant Developmental Biology. In
addition, will be hiring at least two additional plant molecular
biologists in the next two years.
Bloomington is located in the picturesque rolling hill country of
southern Indiana, with several nearby state parks and a federal
wilderness area. Our area is particularly noted for its hardwood
forests and fall colors. The city of Bloomington (pop. ~75,000)
offers numerous cultural opportunities, including a world-renowned
opera program run by the IU School of Music. Most of our faculty
lives within easy walking or cycling distance of campus, although
rural living can be found within a short commute. The quality of
life is high, and the cost of living is low. For additional
