MSU Seeking Assistant Professor/Garden Director
Michigan State’s Department of Horticulture is looking to fill a faculty position: an assistant professor who will do lots of teaching (65%), plus be Director of the MSU Horticulture Gardens, and also advise undergraduate majors, supervise their internships and help build relationships with horticultural industries, among other things. The new position fills, in part, the gap that will open when Dr. Art Cameron fully retires in 2018 (he’s been part time for a while and serving as head of the Gardens).
If you’ve got a Ph.D. in horticulture or other plant science-related fields or public gardens-related terminal degree (such as M.L.A. or Masters in Public Horticulture), have undergraduate teaching experience and a passion for teaching, and have the administrative chops needed for overseeing the gardens budget and funding opportunities, then this might be for you.
