Metabolism Investigator

The Morgridge Institute for Research, a premier private, nonprofit research institute affiliated with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, seeks 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.

The Morgridge Institute serves as a central hub for investigators to work collaboratively on fundamental biomedical questions, and as such offers an extraordinary interdisciplinary work environment. Our recruitment of investigators into the new Metabolism Theme is part of our larger Metabolism Initiative that aims to enhance the pace, productivity, and international profile 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.

Candidates must have a proven track record of high quality research related to metabolism, have outstanding communication skills, and embrace the collaborative and interdisciplinary culture of the institute. Successful candidates will be eligible for appointment to a tenure track or tenured position in the UW-Madison Biochemistry, Biomolecular Chemistry, or Chemistry departments. The institute provides an attractive salary and benefits package and offers generous start-up support.

To Apply: 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 submit letters of recommendation. All materials should be sent to
