FACULTY POSITIONS : SYSTEMS BIOLOGY THEME at the UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MADISON open

THE WISCONSIN INSTITUTE FOR DISCOVERY (WID)- SYSTEMS BIOLOGY THEME at the UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MADISON seeks three outstanding individuals with a Ph.D. and a strong background relevant to systems biology.

The Mission of the Systems Biology Theme is to advance the frontiers of knowledge by promoting synergistic research and education at the interfaces of quantitative, computational and evolutionary biology. The successful candidate will contribute to collaborative efforts combining these approaches.

Quantitative Experimental Biology

Development and application of new measures of biological entities (e.g. molecules, viruses, microbes), including their levels, functions, activities and interactions.

Computational Biology

Integration of diverse data to advance predictive models of how biomolecular networks, viruses, cells, or whole organisms function and interact.

Evolutionary Biology

Development of new experimental, mathematical or computational approaches to better understand how viruses, cells or organisms evolve and co-evolve. 

Areas of special interest for the Systems Biology Theme include: virus-host and microbe-host interactions (beneficial or pathogenic), innate and adaptive immunity, and ecological and evolutionary dynamics.

Details about the position and the application process are available at the website listed below. These tenure track positions will be at a rank commensurate with the qualifications and background of the successful candidates. Candidates should have a distinguished academic record, exceptional potential for creative research, and a commitment to both undergraduate and graduate instruction. For more senior applicants, an outstanding reputation in the field of specialty is a prime requirement. ;

Applications should be submitted via https://newfac.sysbio.discovery.wisc.edu/.

The University of Wisconsin is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer.
