ENDOWED CHAIR in Molecular Genetics

Waksman Institute of Microbiology

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, 2019. 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 undergraduate and graduate courses in these areas, supervise graduate students, and serve on departmental, college and university committees.

The Waksman Institute is home to over 15 faculty members who use a broad range of approaches and experimental systems in numerous well-funded research programs. The Institute is part of a vibrant and interactive life sciences community that includes the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, School of Arts and Sciences Division of Life Sciences, the Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine, the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the Human Genetics Institute of New Jersey, and the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. A leading research university, Rutgers is a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU).

Applicants must have a PhD or equivalent degree and be eligible for the rank of full Professor with tenure. They should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research accomplishments and plans, and full contact information for four individuals willing to provide confidential letters of reference at http://jobs.rutgers.edu/postings/59059. Direct all other inquiries to Ms. Erin Sorge, esorge@waksman.rutgers.edu. Review of applications will begin October 15, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.
