Assistant, Associate, or Full Professors in Metabolism Research
The Morgridge Institute for Research, in partnership with the Departments of
Biochemistry and Biomolecular Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, seek outstanding early- to mid-career scientists to lead vibrant
metabolism-focused research programs based in biochemistry and/or chemical
biology. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and collaborative-minded scientists passionate about exploring the basic molecular and
mechanistic underpinnings of primary cellular metabolism, and how essential
biological processes are linked to the metabolic state of a cell. This position will
jointly include a faculty position at UW-Madison. The tenure home department
of the successful applicant will be determined according to their areas of
specialization. See www.morgridge.org and www.wisc.edu.
The Morgridge Institute—a premier private, nonproft research institute affliated
with UW-Madison—serves as a central campus hub for investigators affliated
with multiple university departments to work collaboratively on fundamental
biomedical questions, and as such offers an extraordinary interdisciplinary
work environment. This recruitment is part of the Institute’s new Metabolism
Theme and the larger, campus-wide Metabolism Initiative that aims to enhance
the pace, productivity, and international profle of metabolism-related research
in Madison. The metabolism community in Madison includes hundreds of
scientists spanning diverse areas of organismal biology, biochemistry, genetics,
nutritional sciences, and medicine, and is home to world-class capabilities in
proteomics, metabolomics, and computational biology.
To Apply: Candidates must have a proven track record of high quality research
related to metabolism, have outstanding communication skills, and embrace a
collaborative and interdisciplinary research culture. Applicants should submit
electronic copies of their curriculum vitae, a 2–3-page description of research
vision and future research plans, a 1-page description of teaching experience
and future teaching plans, and should arrange for at least three referees to
submitlettersofrecommendation.Al l materials should be sent to metabolism@
morgridge.org. Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2017, and
will be considered on a rolling basis. Morgridge Institute for Research promotes
and supports a diverse and inclusive environment.
Applications are invited for:-
School of Biomedical Sciences
Associate Professor(s) / Assistant Professor(s)

research programmes focusing on: cancer biology and experimental therapeutics; developmental
and regenerative biology; and neural, vascular and metabolic biology. Further information is
available at http://www2.sbs.cuhk.edu.hk/en-gb/research/thematic-research-programs. The School
welcomes individuals who are highly devoted to innovative biomedical research and who value
the opportunity to work in close collaboration with basic and clinical scientists to apply for the
post(s) of full-time non-clinical Associate/Assistant Professor(s).
Applicants should have (i) a PhD, MD, or DVM degree or its equivalent in the biological and
biomedical sciences or related disciplines; (ii) experience in using cutting-edge technologies
such as bioinformatics, genomics, molecular genetics, stem cells, transgenic animal and imaging,
animal models of human diseases in their studies; (iii) a competitive track record of research and
publication in top peer-reviewed scientific journals in one or more related areas; and (iv) a good
track record of external funding support. Individuals with track record in research on genetics and
genomics of human diseases, neurodegeneration, vascular and metabolic biology, mammalian
reproduction, and regenerative biology are particularly welcome.
The appointee(s) is/are expected to lead a vigorous independent research programme aside from
teaching undergraduate, postgraduate, medical and general education courses. Appointee(s) will
be provided with appropriate laboratory and office space and a start-up package commensurate
with his/her qualification and experience.
Appointment(s) will normally be made on contract basis for up to three years initially commencing
in the third quarter of 2018, which, subject to performance, funding and mutual agreement, may
