Genetics is hiring two tenure track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor in genetics and genomics

The Department of Genetics in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University of Wisconsin – Madison invites applications for two tenure track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor in genetics and genomics. The Department seeks scientists who use genetic and genomic approaches to address fundamental aspects of inheritance or its phenotypic manifestation at the molecular, cellular, organismal or population level. Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to, cellular and developmental genetics, computation and quantitative modeling of cellular systems, and the functional integration of genetic information.

These new faculty positions are part of a larger expansion of the Department of Genetics and the college to strengthen genome-wide approaches toward improving basic understanding of biological systems and their applications to health, agriculture, ecosystems and bioenergy. These positions are also accompanied by an ongoing search in human genetics in the Department of Medical Genetics, as well as additional campus-wide initiatives. The Laboratory of Genetics, the home of the Departments of Genetics and Medical Genetics, is an active participant in these initiatives. The department offers a stimulating and collegial environment with dedicated mentoring for early-career scientists. The Laboratory of Genetics excels at discovering biological mechanisms through the integration of diverse approaches made possible by a vibrant culture of collaboration. The Laboratory directs an NIH Graduate Training Grant in Genetics that has received continuous funding for 44 years. The University of Wisconsin – Madison is renowned for its strength in the life sciences and allied fields. Madison offers an exceptional quality of life in a beautiful landscape. Downtown and campus are bordered by lakes, and the city features thriving arts, music, and culinary communities. Madison routinely appears on a variety of lists of the most livable cities.

The UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences is committed to maintaining and growing a culture that embraces diversity, inclusion, and equity, believing that these values are foundational elements of our excellence and fundamental components of a positive and enriching learning and working environment for all students, faculty, and staff.
