The Department of Biochemistry invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level.

Candidates with expertise in computational and NMR-based methods for drug discovery are especially encouraged to apply.  The Medical College of Wisconsin (www.mcw.edu) is the largest private research institution in Wisconsin, conducting nearly $150 million annually in funded research. The Department of Biochemistry (www.mcw.edu/biochemistry) is equipped with state-of-the-art X-ray, NMR and mass spectrometry facilities. The College recently established the Research Computing Center, a shared resource for high-performance computing, and MCW is home to an NIH-designated National Biomedical EPR Center and the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (ctsi.mcw.edu). Institutional disease-focused initiatives and established centers for cardiovascular, neuroscience, infectious disease, genetics and cancer research provide translational opportunities for structure-based drug discovery in many areas. Applicants must have a doctoral degree, at least 2 years of postdoctoral training, a strong publication record, and potential to obtain extramural funding.  Competitive salary support, generous benefits package and start-up funds will be provided.
