The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) invites applications for a full-time tenure track ASSISTANT PROFESSOR or ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR beginning in Fall 2023. All areas of research related to cellular and molecular biology will be considered. We especially encourage applicants interested in host-pathogen interactions, immunology, neurobiology, cell biology, or developmental biology. Candidates studying plant or animal systems are welcome to apply. This position requires a Ph.D. degree and postdoctoral experience in Cell Biology or in a related area. Applicants to the rank of Associate Professor must have a strong record of scholarly productivity and external funding. The successful candidate is expected to establish a vigorous, extramurally funded research program involving students (undergraduate, M.S., and Ph.D.) and postdoctoral associates. Responsibilities also include teaching a core course in Cell and Molecular Biology and an advanced course in their area of expertise. We encourage applications from members of groups that are typically under-represented in science.
A completed application should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests (4 page maximum), teaching philosophy (1 page maximum), and a diversity statement (1 page maximum). Additionally, as part of our application process, three letters of reference will be required. Review of applications will start on November 1, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. Applications received after November 1, 2022 may not receive full consideration.
