*Assistant Professor in Plant Molecular Biology*

*University of South Carolina -- Department of Biological Sciences*


The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of South 
Carolina at Columbia invites applications for a tenure-track faculty 
position in the general area of Plant Molecular Biology to begin August 
16, 2018. Areas of research interest include, but are not limited to 
biotic interactions, abiotic interactions, epigenetics, gene regulation, 
signaling, and cell and developmental biology. This individual might 
utilize a variety of approaches including high-throughput (e.g., 
genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics), computation and/or modeling to 
develop an integrated understanding of plant processes at the molecular, 
cellular and organismal levels. Successful candidates will be expected 
to develop an extramurally funded research program and teach at both the 
undergraduate and graduate levels, in courses appropriate to their 

Minimum qualifications include a PhD in plant sciences; evidence of 
established scholarship including a strong record of publishing in 
peer-reviewed journals; and the potential for excellent 
teaching.Post-doctoral experience is preferred.

The Department of Biological Sciences 
(www.biol.sc.edu<http://www.biol.sc.edu>) is a multidisciplinary unit of

Faculty representing a broad range of research areas, including 
Molecular and Cellular Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, 
Cancer Biology, Ecology and Evolution, Plant Sciences, and Neuroscience. 
The Department has ready access to strong core technical support 
facilities and is complemented by strong research programs in other 
science departments. The University of South Carolina's main campus is 
located in the state capital, close to mountains and coast. The Carnegie 
Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has designated the University 
as an institution with "very high research activity."  The University 
has over 34,000 students on the main campus, more than 450 degree

https://uscjobs.sc.edu/. (Posting Number FAC00138PO17) Candidates should 
be prepared to upload a curriculum vitae, a statement (4 page max) 
describing research accomplishments and future research plans, teaching 
interests and teaching philosophy, and at least three letters of 
reference. Review of applications will begin November 30, and will 
continue until the position is filled. More information on the
