ENDOWED CHAIR in Molecular Genetics
Waksman Institute of Microbiology, Rutgers University

The Waksman Institute at Rutgers University invites applications for a newly established endowed chair in Plant Molecular Genetics, with a tentative starting date of September 1, 2018. The academic appointment of the position is expected to be in the Department of Plant Biology, School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, Rutgers University.

We seek somebody that is already well funded in plant molecular genetics, using genomics, metabolomics, NGS and other omics technologies as applied to understanding basic biological processes and to applications, but could use the income from the endowed chair to take on novel innovative ideas that are not supported by conventional funding programs. The candidate will be expected to teach and develop graduate courses in these areas, supervise graduate students, and serve on departmental, college and university committees.

Applicants must have a PhD or equivalent degree and be eligible for the rank of full Professor with tenure.
