Position Summary:

The Wisconsin Institute for Discovery (WID) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has a rewarding opportunity for a tenure track faculty position to study 'molecules in motion' at the intersection of metabolism and human health.

New advances in technology and computational modeling enable understanding of small molecule movement and metabolism through complex pathways in unprecedented detail, creating the field of "fluxomics". A hire in the field of metabolic flux would provide 'glue' among research groups of diverse interests in WID, would provide a natural bridge with the Morgridge Institute, and would coalesce major interest in fluxomics on the UW campus.

WID's mission is to discover and inspire through interdisciplinary research conducted in a dynamic, collaborative community. WID advances frontiers of knowledge, accelerates development of solutions, and engages the State of Wisconsin through interdisciplinary research.The tenure home of the successful applicant will be from amongst a number of participating departments that include Biomolecular Chemistry, Biochemistry, or Chemistry. Other potential tenure home departments outside of those listed will be evaluated once a successful candidate is identified.

As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
