I would like to post the following text on your news group.
Several faculty positions are available at Cornell University as part
of a continuing campus-wide Genomics Initiative that includes the
Boyce Thompson Institute and the USDA-ARS Federal Nutrition
Laboratory. Below is the text of the advertisement that appeared in
the September 28, 2001 issue of Science.
Please bring these positions to the attention of qualified scientists.
PLANT GENOMICS AT CORNELL UNIVERSITY
As part of a university-wide genomics initiative at Cornell
University is seeking applications for seven positions in plant
genomics. Successful candidates will be located in various
departments/units on the Ithaca campus but will be part of the larger
Cornell Genomics Initiative. They will have access to multiple
genomics resources on campus and encouraged to form collaborations
throughout campus. For more information on the Cornell Genomics
Initiative see: www.genomics.cornell.edu
Assistant Professor Positions
Plant Developmental Biology: Applications are sought from candidates
whose research focuses on the molecular genetic analysis of plant
developmental processes, preferably from an evolutionary perspective.
The successful candidate will be based in the Department of Plant
Biology and is expected to contribute to teaching in the area of
plant developmental biology.
Plant Molecular Genetics: Applications are sought for a molecular
geneticist working with either maize or Medicago truncatula. The
successful candidate will be based in the Department of Plant
Breeding and is expected to develop an active basic research program
with potential long-term applications to crop species. Preference
will be given to candidates interested in forming interactive
networks with other researchers working in either grasses or legumes.
Responsibilities include teaching a course in plant
Plant Molecular Biology: Applications are sought for a molecular
biologist to work on molecular and physiological aspects of plant
senescence with potential long-term applications to plants important
in horticulture. Applications from candidates working on model
systems (e.g. Arabidopsis) are welcomed. The successful candidate
will be based in the Department of Horticulture, and is expected to
teach a modern postharvest course at the undergraduate level and to
participate in interdisciplinary graduate education.
Applicants for these three positions should send a cover letter
stating the position(s) for which they wish to be considered, a
curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and the names of
at least three references to: Plant Genomics Search Committee, 520

Plant Molecular Biologist/Biochemist at USDA-ARS/Cornell
The USDA-ARS Center for Health-Based Crop Genomics, which is part of
the USDA-ARS Plant, Soil, and Nutrition Research Unit on the Cornell
University campus in Ithaca, New York, is soliciting applications
from outstanding candidates in the areas of plant molecular biology
and/or plant biochemistry. The research associated with this position
will focus on plant genomic approaches to study the accumulation
and/or synthesis of inorganic and organic constituents of plant foods
that impact human health and nutrition either through diet or as
pharmaceuticals/ nutraceuticals. Research may also deal with the
genetic/molecular control of toxic mineral accumulation in plant
foods. The successful candidates will be part of the Cornell Genomics
Initiative; as such, he/she will participate as an adjunct faculty
member in an appropriate Cornell University department. The salary
range for this position is $51,927-$80,279 per annum. Candidates must
have U.S. citizenship and at least a doctorate degree in plant
molecular biology or related disciplines such as plant biochemistry,
plant physiology, or molecular genetics.
To obtain additional information and application forms, visit our web
site at www.afm.ars.usda.gov/divisions/hrd/hrdhomepage/empopp.htm or
call Sharon Maio at 607-255-5487. Applications in response to this ad
must include the Vacancy Announcement Number ARS-X1E-1525 and be
postmarked by December 3, 2001. Review of applications will begin
November 15 and will continue until the position is filled.
ARS is an equal opportunity employer. Women and minorities are
encouraged to apply.
Plant Molecular Biologists at the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research
The Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) for Plant Research, a
not-for-profit organization at Cornell University, invites
applications for three faculty positions, at any level, although
preference will be given to junior applicants. We are seeking
scientists who use molecular, biochemical, genetic, cell biological,
genomic and/or proteomic approaches to elucidate mechanisms
underlying plant-microbe/insect interactions, chemical/molecular
ecology, or plant development. Research emphases of interest
include, but are not limited to, gene expression, signal
transduction, and primary or secondary metabolism. The successful
candidates will be part of the Cornell Genomics Initiative; as such,
they will participate as adjunct faculty members in an appropriate
Cornell University department.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a three- to five-page
statement of research interests, and the names of four references to
