 Chair, Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology

The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health invites  applications and nominations for the position of Chair of the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology.

The department has a longstanding tradition of excellence, and its mission is to provide comprehensive scientific instruction to students, conduct novel and meaningful research, and offer consultation and service in microbiology and immunology as they relate to human health and disease.

A key and distinguishing feature is its institutional setting within a top-tier research institution and the nation’s first School of Medicine and Public Health. The department’s interests in infectious disease, host immune response, and microbial contributions to human health are illustrated in its research areas of bacterial pathogenesis, fungal pathogenesis, immunology, parasitology, symbiosis, and virology.

The Chair will be an innovative leader in the study of infectious disease and immunity and will champion outstanding qualities of strategic management and leadership with a commitment to diversity and inclusion. The Chair will provide strategic, academic, and administrative leadership of the highest quality to this distinguished department in its research, teaching, and service missions.

Applicants must have substantial academic accomplishments that merit a tenured appointment  at the rank of Professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. A PhD or equivalent degree(s) are required.
