Postdoctoral research-teaching position*

The Biology Department at James Madison University (JMU) is seeking
applications for a Postdoctoral Research-Teaching position in the
laboratory of Jonathan Monroe at James Madison University beginning
January 2013. This position is funded through a Research at
Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) grant from the NSF. Candidates should
have a Ph.D. degree in plant molecular biology and be seeking a career
at a predominantly undergraduate institution. The research involves
investigating the functions of a family of beta-amylases in Arabidopsis
using expressed proteins, T-DNA insertion mutants and measurements of
starch metabolism. Experience with protein-protein interactions is
desirable. In addition to gaining experience in mentoring undergraduate
researchers, the postdoc will also undertake some classroom and
laboratory teaching in a sophomore-level Cell and Molecular Biology
course and in an upper-level course fitting the background of the
postdoc. Travel support is available to attend the national conferences
of ASPB and the Council on Undergraduate Research. This position is
offered for one year, with the option to extend one additional year.

The Biology Department at JMU is housed in a new Bioscience building
that opened Fall 2012. JMU is located in Harrisonburg, VA, in the heart
of the Shenandoah Valley and is about a two-hour drive from Washington,
D.C. The area affords many opportunities for outdoor recreation, with
the George Washington National Forest and Shenandoah National Park
located nearby.

Candidates should submit a cover letter, list of three professional
references, curriculum vitae, and brief statements of research and
