MOLECULAR GENETIC STUDIES OF PLANT BIODIVERSITY AND PLANT GENOMICS
The Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research at Cornell University
invites applications for a tenure-track position for a scientist using
molecular or genetic techniques to address fundamental questions relating
to the functional and evolutionary diversity of plant genomes. Research
areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Adaptation to biotic or abiotic stresses;
- Genetics and biochemistry of plant-insect or plant-pathogen interactions;
- Evolution or analysis of complex traits;
- Comparative analysis of germplasms or natural populations;
- Genomic analysis of the evolution of plant form or function.
The successful candidate will establish an independent, extramurally-funded
research program and collaborate with colleagues at the Boyce Thompson
Institute and elsewhere on the Cornell University campus. This position
is synergistic with a molecular biodiversity/genomics initiative currently
being implemented at Cornell University. Generous start-up funds and
benefits are available. Candidates will be considered at all levels.
Review of applications will begin February 23 and continue until the
position is filled.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, statement of research interests,
and names of at least three references to Molecular Biodiversity Search
Committee, Boyce Thompson Institute, Ithaca, New York 14853. Questions
regarding appropriate research areas may be directed to Dr. David Stern,
(607) 254-1306; fax 255-6695; e-mail ds28 at cornell.edu. The BTI web site is:
