    The University of Missouri (MU) invites applications for three tenure-track faculty positions in the Department of Biochemistry. All positions will be in areas of fundamental biochemistry, two focused on plant biochemistry, and one relevant to biomedical problems. Applications at the Assistant Professor level are encouraged.  Candidates at a higher level will be considered if there is a record of extramural research funding, publications, teaching and service expected of tenured faculty at a research-intensive university, and such candidates in an appropriate area of Plant Biochemistry will be considered for the O’Dell endowed professorship.

    The department has an undergraduate teaching mission in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CAFNR), provides pre-clinical training in the School of Medicine and graduate education in both units. As a department in a Land Grant University that bridges two colleges, the Department of Biochemistry is home to fundamental molecular science and to its translation into both agricultural and biomedical applications.  Areas of interest include: fundamental biochemistry and/or applications such as synthetic biology; metabolic engineering; transgenic technology; and spatio-temporal biochemistry involving transcriptomics, proteomics, and other genome-wide approaches.  For two of the positions the successful candidates could represent any of many areas.  However, for one of the positions, we seek someone, more specifically at the interface of plant metabolism and radiochemistry, leveraging the generation of radio-isotopes at the University of Missouri Research Reactor (MURR). Such an investigator might be studying carbon or nitrogen dynamics utilizing radioactive 11C or 13N, micronutrient assimilation and/or exchange between plants, soil, and microorganisms, or metabolic flux, for example.
