The School of Integrative Plant Science at Cornell University ( http://sips.cals.cornell.edu/ ) is searching for a strong candidate for a tenure track position at the assistant or associate Professor level in Plant Metabolomics (see attached announcement). Application review will begin on October 9, 2015.
The successful candidate will develop an internationally-recognized and well-funded research program in Plant Metabolomics that leverages technological innovation and high-resolution instrumentation to elucidate metabolic pathways and identify critical plant primary or secondary compounds. Possible research areas include, but are not limited to: (1) identification of metabolic networks, evaluation of metabolic flux and regulatory control points, and integration of such information in a 'systems' context; (2) the phylogenetic diversity of plant primary and secondary compounds; (3) plant metabolites in an environmental and ecological context, e.g. in relation to biotic or abiotic stress; and (4) the potential for utilization of such compounds in biomedicinal or nutraceutical applications or for the improvement of crops.
Questions about the application process can be addressed to Ms. Karin Jantz, Section of Plant Biology ( kpg2 from cornell.edu<mailto:kpg2 from cornell.edu>). Questions about the position can be addressed to Search Committee Chair, Professor Klaas van Wijk (kv35 from cornell.edu)
