The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Cancer Center (CC) in partnership with basic science departments (Biochemistry, Biophysics, Pharmacology & Toxicology, Cell Biology, Neuroscience & Anatomy, Microbiology & Immunology) has made a strategic decision to expand on its strengths in Structural and Chemical Biology (SCB) and now invites applications for tenure-track positions at all levels.
The Medical College of Wisconsin (www.mcw.edu) is the 3rd largest private medical school in the country, conducting over $250M annually in externally funded research, over $145M from the NIH. An established Structural and Chemical Biology Center is home to state-of-the-art NMR, chemical synthesis facilities with ready access to high-performance computing, X-ray crystallography, and a recently established Cryo-EM data collection. MCW is also home to an NIH-designated National Biomedical Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) Center and the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute of Southeast Wisconsin.
This cluster recruitment seeks individuals to establish internationally leading research programs that apply the tools of structural biology to fundamental questions in cancer biology or cancer therapeutics. The ideal candidate will focus on cryo-EM (Single-particle Analysis (SPA) or in-situ cryo-ET) and SPA data science. MCW is equipped with a state-of-the-art 200-keV cryo-EM with direct electron detector and energy filter capable of final data collection for sub-4Å structure determination. MCW Cryo-EM researchers have expanded instrumentation opportunities through participation in a statewide Cryo-EM consortium that includes the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Cryo-EM Research Center, which is within 60 miles from MCW and currently houses five new cryo-EMs, including two Titan Krios.
Applicants must have a doctoral degree in structural biology, biochemistry, biophysics or related discipline, at least two years of postdoctoral training, a strong publication record investigating structural and functional properties of biomolecules of cancer therapeutic relevance, and potential to obtain cancer-related extramural funding. MCW is intent on attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse workforce and faculty body that reflects the community we serve. We value diversity of backgrounds, experience, thought, and perspectives to advance excellence in science and medicine. MCW is a welcoming campus community with a strong culture of collaboration, partnership, and engagement with our surrounding community.
Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis until the positions are filled. Qualified applicants should submit a single pdf containing 1) a cover letter, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) summary of research accomplishments (4-page maximum) and future research plans (4-page maximum), and 4) names and contact information of four references to www.mcw.edu/careers requisition #31368. MCW is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and strongly encourages applications from individuals in groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. The Medical College of Wisconsin is an affirmative action / equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate in hiring or employment on the basis of age, sex, race, color, religion, national origin, veteran status, disability, or sexual orientation.
