Just got this in the intertubes:

Please forward

Dear Botanical Friends & Colleagues,

The department of Plant and Microbial Biology at UC Berkeley is hiring a cluster of Plant Biologists focusing on researchers investigating processes associated with plant adaptation, including evolutionary genetics & developmental evolution, broadly. We have two tenure-track positions at the Assistant Level and one at a Senior Level (Associate or Full). The senior hire will be involved as a leader in the Innovative Genomics Institute ( specific funding to develop genome editing as a tool for basic and applied plant research.

For Applicants at the Assistant Professor level: https:

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
