The Organization:

The Morgridge Institute for Research serves as a central hub for investigators to work collaboratively on fundamental biomedical questions, and as such offer an extraordinary interdisciplinary work environment.

The Opportunity:

The Morgridge Institute for Research (MIR), a premier private, nonprofit research institute affiliated with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, seeks outstanding early- to mid-career scientists to lead vibrant metabolism research programs. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and collaborative-minded scientists passionate about exploring the basic molecular and mechanistic underpinnings of cellular metabolism and its dysfunction in human disease as well as investigators that employ several distinct experimental approaches to studying metabolic processes, with the goal of maximizing cross-collaboration in the areas of metabolomics, large-scale systems & computational biology, mechanistic biochemistry & chemical biology, functional & integrative genomics, and model organism research.

Qualifications:

Candidates must have a proven track record of high quality research related to metabolism, have outstanding communication skills, and embrace the collaborative and interdisciplinary culture of the institute. Successful candidates will be eligible for appointment to a tenure track or tenured position in appropriate UW-Madison departments.
