Genomics Faculty Jobs at the Joint Genome Institute

Just got an email from Eddy Rubin the Director of the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) advertising faculty jobs in genomics at the JGI. Looks like this could be very nice. I have an Adjunct Appointment at JGI and do a lot of work there and am hoping that some great people apply for these jobs …

Dear JGI User Community,
I would like to bring to you attention an elite early career faculty position presently available at the DOE Joint Genome Institute. The Divisional Fellow position that we are advertising (in Nature and Science, attached) is equivalent to a tenure-track faculty position at a university, and is appropriate for highly-qualified scientists with a Ph.D. or M.D. degree, who have completed post-doctoral training or equivalent experience. We are specifically seeking individuals to direct a genomics-based research program in the study of either plants, microbes, metagenomes or genome informatics. Divisional Fellows are appointed to five-year term, provided with research and salary support and an accelerated path for achieving promotion to Senior Scientist status at the end of this term.

I urge you to contact me directly if you have questions about the position while interested parties should submit CV, summary of research interests, and references to recruiter Bill Cannan:

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
