Faculty Position in Plant Biology at Penn State University
The Department of Biology at The Pennsylvania State University invites
applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant,
Associate, or Full Professor level in Plant Biology, with research
programs in molecular, cellular, and/or developmental aspects of plant
biology. We particularly encourage applications from individuals whose
work is related to energy storage in plants (including carbon
partitioning; synthesis of cell walls, starch and lipids; and genetic
control of these metabolic pathways) as well as other areas related to
the physiology and development of land plants. Penn State is an
international center for plant biology research, with particular
emphases in cell biology, development, genomics, ecology, and
evolution. Penn State has an outstanding interdisciplinary plant
biology graduate program ([Only registered users see links. ]
), excellent plant growth facilities, and a number of core resources
that provide research support ([Only registered users see links. ]),
including bioimaging, molecular biology, genomics, and proteomics.
Interaction with existing research programs is particularly
encouraged. Prospective candidates should have a strong record of
research accomplishments, ability to secure extramural grants, and a
commitment to teaching undergraduates. Candidates should email a
letter of application, curriculum vitae, research prospectus,
statement of teaching interests, and names and contact information of
at least three references, all as a single PDF document, to [Only registered users see links. ]
.. Publications and manuscripts (not more than three) may also be
submitted as separate PDF documents along with the application. Review
of completed applications will begin November 23, 2009.
Penn State is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity and
the diversity of its workforce.

ON Sourcinggate With the undeniable popularity of AppleĄŻs iPad, itĄŻs not surprising that iPad clones have popped up all over the place, and the Zenithink tablet also joins the crowd of iPad clones out there. While pricing isnĄŻt available just yet, the specifications of this device arenĄŻt too bad at all, which include:
* 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor
* 512MB RAM
* 16GB flash storage
* 2400mAh battery
* 10-inch 1024 x 600 pixel display
* Supports full HD video playback
Of course, itĄŻs worth noting that the interface of the device will play a big part in whether itĄŻs successful or not, since there isnĄŻt any point of having good hardware crippled by bad software.
