Tenure track faculty position for Medical Genetics open

The Department of Medical Genetics in the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health invites applications for a tenure track position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in human genetics and genomics. The Department seeks scientists who address fundamental questions in human biology from a genetic perspective. Research areas of interest include analysis of human sequence data in families and populations, genetic and molecular investigation of human-derived cells and lines, model-organism interrogation of fundamental processes relevant to human biology, modeling of gene function and networks to predict phenotypic outcomes, or other areas directly related to human genetics and genomics.

This search joins ongoing, campus-wide efforts to recruit numerous faculty in human genetics and genomics. The foundation for this strategic expansion includes the newly established Center for Human Genomics and Precision Medicine, the Carbone Cancer Center, the Waisman Center, the Genome Center of Wisconsin, the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, and the UW Hospital and Clinics. The Laboratory of Genetics, the home of the Department of 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 department directs an NIH Graduate Training Grant in Genetics that has received continuous funding for 47 years.

The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
