Faculty Position in Plant Biology
Applications due: December 15, 2010.
The MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory (PRL) has a twelve-month per year tenure-track faculty position available at the Assistant, Associate or in exceptional cases Full Professor level. We seek to identify individuals who investigate fundamental questions in plant biology relevant to energy flow in the continuum between photon capture and the deposition of energy-rich molecules. Examples of such research include mechanisms of light harvesting, CO2 fixation, energy regulatory networks, enzymes and metabolites involved in energy conversion, and computational approaches to model biological networks.
The PRL, with core funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, provides an excellent environment for creative research in plant biology. Michigan State University provides a stimulating atmosphere with world class colleagues and facilities, and exceptional breadth and depth in the plant sciences. PRL faculty members are jointly appointed in an appropriate academic department and are full members of the MSU tenure-stream faculty.
