As part of our current strategy, The Department of Plant Sciences at the University of California, Davis has initiated a major new 'Recruitment For Excellence' that over the next two years will see the appointment of at least eight new faculty members at assistant/associate professor rank. The department is world-leading and provides a vibrant and dynamic environment with engaged and highly collaborative faculty, working from molecule to ecosystem, applying fundamental knowledge to address real-world problems in Plant Sciences. We seek the highest quality applicants and in return offer a competitive start-up and outstanding opportunities across the agricultural, environmental and life science campus that is Davis.
