MOLECULAR BIODIVERSITY OF PLANTS
The Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research at Cornell University
invites applications for a tenure-track position for a junior level
scientist who uses genomics or proteomics approaches to study
fundamental mechanisms underlying plant biodiversity at the organismal
or population levels. Research areas of interest include, but are not
- Adaptation to biotic or abiotic stresses or environmental factors
- Genetics and biochemistry of plant-insect or plant-pathogen
- Molecular analysis of ecological systems
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 the Cornell Genomics
Initiative which is a comprehensive effort to recruit 20 new genomics
faculty to the Cornell campus and significantly upgrade facilities and
infrastructure for genomics and proteomics research. Excellent start-up
funds and benefits are available. Review of applications will begin
April 5, 1999 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 the position may be directed to Dr.
David Stern, 607-254-1306; e-mail ds28 at cornell.edu or Dr. Robert Kohut,
