As seen in the 29 August issue of Science:

Plant Biology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln
The Plant Science Community at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is  
a vibrant, rapidly
growing group of scientists focused in research areas that include  
ecological, evolutionary,
genomic and molecular approaches. This year, we are pleased to  
announce two new
tenure-track faculty positions:

Plant Systems Biologist (Requisition # 80705): A joint, tenure-track  
Assistant Professor
position in the Center for Plant Science Innovation (http:// 
psiweb.unl.edu) and with its
academic home in the School of Biological Sciences (http:// 
www.biosci.unl.edu/) . The
successful candidate will be expected to maintain a vigorous,  
externally funded research
program on plant gene networks, systems biology and/or computational  
biology. Strong
preference will be given to research programs that focus on plant  
gene regulatory networks,
modeling of genotype x environment interactions, cellular and  
physiological complexity, or
plant interactions with other organisms. Teaching responsibilities  
include teaching one
graduate or undergraduate level course annually in a relevant area. A  
Ph.D. and
post-doctoral experience in genetics, molecular biology, cell  
biology, computational biology
or a related field are required. Salary is commensurate with  
qualifications and experience.

Plant Organismal Biologist (Requisition #80611): A tenure-track  
Assistant Professor
position in the School of Biological Sciences (http:// 
www.biosci.unl.edu/). Candidates will
be expected to develop a rigorous, externally funded research program  
in evolutionary
and/or ecological studies of plants. Strong preference will be given  
to research programs
that include a field component. Teaching responsibilities include  
teaching two courses
annually, taking primary responsibility for a lower division  
undergraduate course in
biodiversity one semester and teaching an upper division or graduate  
course emphasizing
the ecology and/or evolution of plants in the alternate semester. A  
Ph.D. in the life sciences
and post-doctoral research experience are required and teaching  
experience preferred.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Both positions have start dates of August, 2009. The positions will  
remain open until a
suitable candidate is selected.

To be considered for this position go to http://employment.unl.edu,
