Position: Assistant Professor/Comparative Genomics

We have an opening for a project on which I'm collaborating:

Full-time 12 month appointment academic position for a genomics scientist. The incumbent will spend 50% time as the Associate Director of the Comparative Genomics Laboratory, with duties in directing daily activities, long-range planning and seeking extramural funding, and 50% time to conduct research. Qualified candidates should have an earned Ph.D, training in Bioinformatics or Quantitative Biology and strong interests in evolution of early vertebrate genomes and functional genomics. Postdoctoral experience preferred. Initial appointment will be for three years as a fixed-term assistant professor in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Michigan State University, with possible renewal. Email a single PDF or word file containing cover letter, CV and statement of research interests to liweim<at>msu.edu before 30 Sept. 2008.

Note that this is a non-tenure-track assistant professorship, so it's fixed term and soft money. We don't have positions like this in my departments (comp sci & molecular biology) but you could think of this as a very senior, very well paid, and very independent postdoc position.
