|The Department of Biomolecular Chemistry in the School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites applications for a faculty position to study the molecular aspects of cancer biology.
Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) cancer genomics or epigenomics, developing new genome-scale approaches to generate and analyze large data sets for advancing our mechanistic understanding of cancer, cancer systems biology, mechanisms of tumor initiation and progression, and tumor-host interactions. Use of genome-enabled approaches and expertise in computational biology and/or bioinformatics is also desired. The department is housed within the new Biochemical Sciences Complex offering state-of-the-art research space. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to engage the larger campus-wide initiative in precision medicine and human genomics and benefit from an interactive scientific environment with cutting-edge core facilities supported by the NCI-designated Carbone Comprehensive Cancer Center. The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a world-class academic institution with an international reputation for basic, translational and cross-disciplinary research and is located in the heart of one of the country's most livable cities.
We seek applicants with a vigorous research program and commitment to teaching to join this highly collegial and collaborative community. The successful candidate will be expected to (1) develop a vigorous and internationally-recognized research program, (2) attract and maintain extramural funding, (3) supervise graduate student and postdoc research, (4) participate in teaching, (5) participate in faculty governance activities in the department, school and/or University, and (6) participate in professional, public and university service.
