FOREST PRODUCTIVITY - TWO POSITIONS:
MOLECULAR GENETICS/GENOMICS AND PHYSIOLOGY

     The Daniel B. Warnell School of Forest Resources at the University of
Georgia invites applications for TWO tenure-track research faculty
positions in the area of Forest Productivity at the level of ASSISTANT
PROFESSOR.  The successful candidate for the Molecular Genetics/Genomics
position will be expected to develop a research program focused on
accelerating the development of genetically superior southern forest trees
by identifying genes that speed growth and reduce damage from insects and
disease.  He/she will join a collaborative team in forest biotechnology and
will have the opportunity for extensive interactions in an
interdisciplinary bioinformatics initiative newly underway at the
University.  Candidates for this position must hold a Ph.D., have
postdoctoral experience, and have demonstrated ability to obtain extramural
funding for high-quality research in plant molecular genetics.   Experience
with forest trees is desirable.
      The successful candidate for the Forest Productivity/Physiology
position will be expected to conduct research on the processes that affect
forest stand productivity, with the goal of improving understanding of the
physical and biochemical processes that control forest production,
including carbon gain and allocation, wood formation and quality, nutrient
and water uptake and metabolism.  Research is expected to lead to
development of biologically based models of tree and stand growth useful
for determining efficient strategies for increasing fiber production under
alternative management scenarios.  Applicants for this position must hold a
Ph.D., have research experience in both tree physiology and mathematical
modelling and be able to work as a research team member.  Postdoctoral
experience is desirable.   
	Salary for both positions is commensurate with experience.  Applications
should include curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching
interests, letters of evaluation from three references, transcripts of all
college-level work and reprints of selected publications.  Complete
application packages received by July 1, 1997 are assured consideration.
Send applications to:  Scott A. Merkle, Search Committee Chair, Daniel B.
Warnell School of Forest Resources, University of Georgia, Athens, GA
30602.  Telephone: 706-542-6112; Email: smerkle at uga.cc.uga.edu.  The
University of Georgia is a unit of the University System of Georgia.  The
University of Georgia is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action
