Associate Professor-Tenure System

Position Summary

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology invites applications for a position at the Assistant or AssociateProfessor level from individuals addressing fundamental aspects of plant response and adaptation to global environmental change.  Specific research areas of interest include, but are not limited to, environmental signal transduction and mechanisms of plant stress tolerance to biotic stresses, water deficit, high salinity, nutrient deprivation, and temperature extremes. Candidates whose research program integrates a broad spectrum of biochemical, molecular, and genomictechnologies, including gene-editing approaches applied to model or agriculturally relevant plants, are especially encouraged to apply. 

The mission of the Plant Resilience Institute (PRI) is to conduct basic laboratory and field research on plant resilience with the goal of improving the productivity and nutritional quality of agricultural and horticultural crops.  Research programs center on mechanisms that enhance plant resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses associated with changing environmental conditions. The PRI is an interdisciplinary cross-departmental program, with PRI members belonging to a range of home departments.
