Position Description (detailed version):

Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Plant Physiology

 

We invite applications for a faculty position in Plant Physiology at the Assistant/Associate Professor level. We seek candidates from all areas of plant physiology, especially individuals whose interests complement existing departmental strengths in plant molecular genetics, ecology, and systems biology. We are searching for individuals who integrate experimental laboratory and field studies with theory, and who consider physiological questions in a cellular, molecular, evolutionary or ecological context. Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to, metabolism/bioenergetics, biochemical structure and synthesis, plant cellular and structural biology, and plant growth/development. Applicants must be committed to both teaching and to developing an externally funded research program, contributing to both the undergraduate and graduate curricula through teaching and mentorship of student research. Responsibilities include teaching an upper-division plant physiology course with laboratory each year, and other courses in the undergraduate and graduate botany and physiology programs.

 

The successful candidate should have strong communication skills and the ability to work effectively with faculty, staff and students from diverse ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

 

Qualifications for this position are a Ph.D. degree, postdoctoral training, and a strong research record. Teaching experience is desirable. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, separate statements of research and teaching interests, and copies of significant publications. Applicants should send application materials and arrange to have three reference letters sent to: Chair, Plant Physiology Search Committee, Dept. of Biology, San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway Ave., San Francisco, CA 94132-1722. We encourage electronic submission of applications as a single PDF (excluding reference letters publications may be sent as separate PDF files) with “[Relevant Position] Search Committee” in the subject line to [hidden email]. Review of applications begins 15 November 2012 and continues until a suitable candidate is chosen.
