Medical College of Wisconsin, Medical College of Wisconsin , United States
Application deadline: 08 Jul 2021

Available Position:

An endowed chair, competitive salary support, generous benefits package, and start-up funds will be provided to candidates with commensurate scientific and leadership qualifications. The ideal senior candidate will help build bridges between these major cross-disciplinary research initiatives and integrate them with the Structural and Chemical Biology initiative. The successful candidate is expected to also develop, implement and lead strategic growth in structural biology with an opportunity to direct the ongoing instrument acquisition process and co-recruitment of junior cryo-EM (SPA and in-situ cryo-ET) and SPA data science faculty and staff. To this end, the ideal candidate will be supported in building the infrastructure necessary for onsite sample preparation and data collection, including the purchase of a state-of-the-art 200-keV cryo-EM with direct electron detector and energy filter capable of final data collection for sub-4Å structure determination. MCW Cryo-EM researchers have expanded instrumentation opportunities through participation in a statewide Cryo-EM consortium that includes the University of Wisconsin Madison’s Cryo-EM Research Center, which currently has four new cryo-EMs including a Titan Krios.


Who are we looking for?


Suitable candidates will have an M.D., Ph.D., or M.D/Ph.D. degree. The ideal candidate is expected to have an active research program applying single-particle cryo-EM methods (SPA) to determine mechanisms relevant to cancer biology. Applicants must have a doctoral degree in structural biology, biochemistry, biophysics or related discipline, and a proven track record of scientific accomplishment and extramural funding.


How do I apply?


Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Qualified applicants should submit a single pdf containing a cover letter, CV, summary of research accomplishments and future research plans (four pages maximum), and names and contact information of four references to requisition #27936.
