As an independent research organization, the Morgridge Institute for Research explores uncharted scientific territory to discover tomorrow’s cures. In affiliation with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, we support researchers who take a fearless approach to advancing human health in emerging fields such as regenerative biology, metabolism, virology and medical engineering. Through public programming, we work to inspire scientific curiosity in everyday life.
The Morgridge Institute for Research, in partnership with the Departments of Biochemistry and Biomolecular Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, seek outstanding early- to mid-career scientists to lead vibrant metabolism-focused research programs based in biochemistry and/or chemical biology. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and collaborative-minded scientists passionate about exploring the basic molecular and mechanistic underpinnings of primary cellular metabolism, and how essential biological processes are linked to the metabolic state of a cell. This position will jointly include a faculty position at UW-Madison. The tenure home department of the successful applicant will be determined according to their areas of specialization.
The Morgridge Institute—a premier private, nonprofit research institute affiliated with UW-Madison—serves as a central campus hub for investigators affiliated with multiple university departments to work collaboratively on fundamental biomedical questions, and as such offers an extraordinary interdisciplinary work environment. This recruitment is part of the Institute’s new Metabolism Theme and the larger, campus-wide Metabolism Initiative that aims to enhance the pace, productivity, and international profile of metabolism-related research in Madison. The metabolism community in Madison includes hundreds of scientists spanning diverse areas of organismal biology, biochemistry, genetics, nutritional sciences, and medicine, and is home to world-class capabilities in proteomics, metabolomics, and computational biology.
Candidates must have a proven track record of high quality research related to metabolism, have outstanding communication skills, and embrace a collaborative and interdisciplinary research culture. Applicants should submit electronic copies of their curriculum vitae, a 2–3-page description of research vision and future research plans, a 1-page description of teaching experience and future teaching plans, and should arrange for at least three referees to submit letters of recommendation. All materials should be sent to email@example.com. Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2017, and will be considered on a rolling basis.
