The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Cancer Center (CC) in partnership with basic science departments (Biochemistry, Biophysics, Pharmacology & Toxicology, Cell Biology, Neuroscience and Anatomy, Microbiology & Immunology) have committed to expand strengths in Structural and Chemical Biology and now invites applications for multiple tenure-track positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor level (See attached job ads), including an endowed chair position for an established Cryo-EM investigator at the associate or full professor level. This cluster recruitment effort seeks individuals to establish internationally leading research programs that apply the tools of chemical, computational or structural biology to fundamental questions in cancer. 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 therapeutic relevance, and potential to obtain extramural funding.
The Medical College of Wisconsin (http://www.mcw.edu) is the 3rd largest private medical school in the country, conducting over $200M annually in externally funded research, over $145M from the NIH. A newly-established Structural and Chemical Biology Center is home to state-of-the-art X-ray, NMR, and chemical synthesis facilities with ready access to shared resources for high-performance computing, and on and offsite opportunities for Cryo-EM data collection. MCW is also home to an NIH-designated National Biomedical EPR Center and Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute.
