Faculty Call: Biochemistry

These faculty positions are tenure-track (junior) or tenured (mid-career or senior). Although applicants of any rank will be considered, we particularly encourage applicants at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level. Candidates for a tenured position must possess a sustained record of professional achievement as indicated by outstanding research and publications, teaching, and other notable activities.

We particularly encourage applications in two areas: (1) individuals who use small molecule or chemical approaches to study important problems in biochemistry, or (2) individuals who use NMR, cryo-EM or other structural biology approaches in an integrative research program. We also will consider outstanding faculty applicants in other areas of biochemistry, including computational modeling and simulation, and development of novel techniques to study compelling problems in biochemistry.


The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of Biochemistry (biochem.wisc.edu) invites applications for new faculty positions to build on its strength in biochemical research and technology and contribute to its multi-year hiring plan.

The Department provides outstanding support and a stimulating research environment within the highly collaborative research community at UW-Madison. User facilities available in the department to enable faculty research include animal care, biophysical and advanced microscopy instrumentation, electronic media and information technologies, and structural biology including cryo-electron microscopy, NMR and X-ray crystallography. Other excellent additional resources available nearby on campus include metabolomics, mass spectrometry, next-generation RNA and DNA sequencing, and high-throughput computing.

The University and Madison are working to create a diverse environment with ready access to cultural activities, outdoor pursuits, and stimulating neighbors and colleagues. The Department of Biochemistry is committed to increasing further the diversity of is employees, its programs, and curricula. Candidates who can contribute to these goals are encouraged to identify their strengths and experiences in these areas in their research or teaching statements.

This position carries a commitment to the three functions of research, instruction, and outreach service as appropriate to the position and rank.
