Dear Colleagues,
We would like to solicit your assistance in bringing the following faculty
positions to the attention of qualified individuals. These positions will

applications must be received by August 15, 2017*.

*Job summary:*
The College of Biological Sciences at the University of Minnesota is
recruiting two tenure-track assistant or associate professors in the
Department of Plant and Microbial Biology. New technologies and approaches
provide unprecedented opportunities to link fundamental properties of
plants at the molecular, cellular or tissue levels to phenotype. We seek
creative and collaborative plant biologists who utilize approaches such as
biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, physiology or systems biology to
discover novel facets of fundamental processes in plants. Ideal candidates
will be fluent in computational approaches for data analysis and will
utilize interdisciplinary approaches to advance our understanding of the
mechanistic basis of plant life.

*Duties and responsibilities: *
The successful candidates will develop strong, extramurally funded research
programs, teach effectively in biology courses, mentor undergraduate,
graduate and postdoctoral researchers, and participate in professional
service. Faculty positions at the University of Minnesota provide
opportunities for collaboration between researchers in all disciplines and
involvement in several excellent graduate programs.

*Required qualifications:*

   - Ph.D. (or foreign equivalent) in an appropriate discipline
   - Strong publication record in disciplines related to the position
   - Evidence of potential to initiate and sustain extramurally funded
   - Demonstrated effectiveness in communicating with multiple audiences
   - Evidence of commitment to equity and diversity

*Preferred qualifications:*

   - Track record of interacting creatively, collaboratively and
   productively with other scientists
   - Teaching experience at graduate or undergraduate levels

*How to apply:*
These positions will remain open until filled, but for full consideration
completed applications must be received by August 15, 2017. We expect to
conduct on-campus interviews in October and complete our review of

   - Cover Letter
   - CV
   - Names and contact information for three professional references
   (letters of recommendation will be requested after the applicant pool has
   been evaluated)
   - Statement of Research describing current and future research interests
   (maximum of three pages)
   - Statement of Teaching describing how your experiences have shaped your
   teaching philosophy and goals (maximum of one page)
   - Statement of Diversity and Inclusion describing why offering an
   educational environment that recognizes the importance of diversity and

The new Department of Plant and Microbial Biology
<https://cbs.umn.edu/academics/departments/pmb> comprises a diverse and
integrative group of scientists studying genetics, cell biology,
biochemistry, physiology, ecology, evolution, and systems biology.  The
larger University community provides exceptional opportunities to develop
strengths in research, teaching, and community outreach. Affiliated
research and outreach facilities include the Minnesota Supercomputing
Institute, the Center for Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics, the Microbial
and Plant Genomics Institute, the BioTechnology Institute, the
Biotechnology Resource Center, the University of Minnesota Genomics Center,
the Biological Imaging Centers, the University of Minnesota Herbarium of
the J. F. Bell Museum of Natural History, the College of Biological
Sciences Conservatory, the Lake Itasca Biological Station, and the Cedar
Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve. The campus is located in the heart of the
Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area, which is rich in cultural and
natural attractions.
