Assistant Professor/Associate Professor/Professor - Plant Science, Human Interface and Manufacturing, Chemistry
Boston, MA, USA
Applications Reviews Starting
October 30, 2023
The College of Science and College of Engineering at Northeastern University invite applications for positions at all ranks (Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor), beginning in academic year 2024-2025 in the field of plant-human interface, broadly defined. Areas of particular interest in the current search include plant RNA biology, plant biochemistry, plant inter-species interactions, food allergy, pharmaceutical biomanufacturing, metabolic engineering, climate change, and sustainable foods. Primary appointments will be in the College of Science (e.g., Biology or Chemistry and Chemical Biology) or College of Engineering (e.g., Bioengineering or Chemical Engineering), with potential joint appointments in other departments and across Colleges. In the meantime, the successful candidates will also be appointed as members of the newly forming Institute for Plant-Human Interface (IPHI). Appointments will have the opportunity to collaborate in cross-disciplinary teams across the University and will complement existing strengths.
Applicants must have a PhD in biology, chemistry, neuroscience, engineering or a related field by the appointment start date. The committee is particularly interested in research areas that include inter-species interactions between plants and other organisms, phytochemical interactions with human neuroimmune systems and microbiome, drug discovery based on medicinal plant natural products, and plant synthetic biology. We encourage applicants from a wide range of backgrounds, including academia and industry.
All applicants should have a strong record of scholarly accomplishment that demonstrates the ability to build a strong research program. Candidates seeking appointment at the Associate or Full Professor level should have substantial research productivity and an established history of grant support and academic service. Academic rank at the Associate Professor and Full Professor levels will be commensurate with experience and qualifications reflecting a record of demonstrated teaching and scholarly excellence. Research excellence is the top-most priority. Depending on the research profile and expertise, a joint or affiliate appointment in another department(s) within the University is possible

The University of Manitoba invites a world leading researcher to be nominated for a prestigious Canada Excellence Research Chairs (CERC) in the 2022 Competition. The CERC program was developed to recruit top researchers in Science, Technology, and Innovation (ST&I) priority areas to strengthen Canada’s research and training capacities. CERCs are among the largest awards granted in Canada, providing Chairholders and their teams with 8 million CAD over eight years to support their research programs.
The University of Manitoba welcomes applications from recognized scientific leaders developing transformative biotechnologies to join and expand an internationally recognized team of researchers in crop enhancement and protection research. Examples of research areas of interest for the CERC include plant or crop system resilience, plant engineering for enhanced traits or novel products, biotechnologies for crop protection, synthetic biology, molecular systems biology, plant-microbe interactions, microbiome engineering, plant adaptations to biotic and abiotic stress, and plant bioproducts. Researchers in any area of transformative plant/crop biotechnology are encouraged to apply. Candidates will have an outstanding track record of research contributions in their field and be at a career stage consistent with a tenured Associate Professor or Professor.
Submit your application directly to Dr. Steve Whyard firstname.lastname@example.org by July 1, 2022. A complete application will include: a curriculum vitae; a brief description of the research program related to the chair (maximum of three pages); significant contributions to the field (peer-reviewed articles, monographs, patents, etc.; maximum of three pages); a statement on teaching or mentoring philosophy; a statement on commitment to service to your organization and to the broader community; a diversity statement including your positionality and significant contributions to DEIJ (maximum of two pages); and the names of three experts prepared to submit a letter of recommendation.
