Then we want to hear from you. The College of Biological Sciences (CBS) at the University of Minnesota (UMN) is hiring two tenure-track assistant professor or associate professors in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology. New technologies and approaches provide unprecedented opportunities to link fundamental properties of plants at the molecular, cellular or tissue levels to phenotype.
Over the two decades George Weiblen has done field research research in Papua New Guinea he’s created more than new knowledge.
