|The candidate will be expected to develop a vigorous, independent research program; attract and maintain extramural funding for their research program in the Living Environments Laboratory; teach undergraduate and/or graduate courses; develop new course(s) in their area of expertise as appropriate; supervise graduate and postgraduate research; participate in faculty governance activities in the department, college and/or University; and actively engage with the national and international scientific community.
The Wisconsin Institute for Discovery (http://wid.wisc.edu/) is a public, transdisciplinary research institute at the University of Wisconsin¿Madison. The institute is situated in a public-private partnership with the private, non-profit Morgridge Institute for Research and hosts eight research themes: The Center for Complexity and Collective Computation, Core Computational Technology, Systems Biology, Epigenetics, BIONATES, Games+Learning+Society, Optimization, and the Living Environments Laboratory (LEL).
The Wisconsin Institute for Discovery is an exciting opportunity for creative applicants to work in a multi-disciplinary environment while pursuing independent research in a state-of-the-art facility. This venture requires candidates who will boldly participate in the shaping WID through their participation in the Living Environments Laboratory.
The Wisconsin Institute for Discovery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites applications for faculty openings in the Living Environments Laboratory (http://wid.wisc.edu/research/lel/). The LEL is a multidisciplinary lab that uses advanced and 3D visualizations to explore scientific, clinical and aesthetic research questions and applications including perception and visualization, human decision making and behavior as well as natural interfaces in virtual reality environments. A primary tool for researchers in the LEL is a fully immersive six-sided virtual reality CAVE. LEL's goals are to advance the science of immersive virtual reality, advance the art and science of design, and create innovative technologies. LEL provides the spaces and computational power to observe and imagine new possibilities for human behavior and scientific discovery. Successful candidates will occupy a new state-of-the-art and centrally located research facility specifically designed to spark and support cross-disciplinary collaborations. Each candidate will interview both with the LEL theme members and the department of the University that most appropriately matches their experience and interests.
