The Department of Pathobiological Sciences, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Wisconsin-Madison is seeking candidates for an Assistant Professor or early-stage Associate Professor tenure-track faculty position in the field of quantitative modeling of infectious diseases. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an independent, extramurally funded nationally-recognized research program in the mathematical, statistical, or computational modeling of infectious disease-associated processes at any scale (molecular to population). Potential areas of research include, but are not limited to, modeling host-pathogen molecular interactions, modeling host responses to infectious agents at the tissue, organ, or organismal levels, or modeling the dynamics of infectious agents in populations. Minimum requirements include a PhD and at least 2 years of postdoctoral or equivalent experience in a relevant field.
There are excellent opportunities for the new faculty member to benefit from existing departmental strengths in infectious disease, which emphasize emerging and zoonotic diseases of importance to global animal and human health. The University of Wisconsin-Madison campus excels in infectious disease, quantitative biology, computer science, engineering, mathematics, and statistics across its varied departments and units, creating a rich environment for cross-disciplinary collaboration.
In addition to developing a strong extramurally funded research program, the successful candidate is expected to make significant contributions to departmental and campus professional, undergraduate, and/or graduate teaching programs and to mentor trainees in the Comparative Biomedical Sciences graduate program and other programs. Participation in departmental and university service and commitment to fostering a diverse academic environment are expected.
The Department of Pathobiological Sciences is one of four within the School of Veterinary Medicine and consists of faculty members with expertise in infectious diseases (immunology, parasitology, bacteriology, virology, epidemiology, and public health) and comparative pathology (anatomical and clinical). Faculty within the Department and School train graduate students in the Comparative Biomedical Sciences and other campus graduate programs. They also serve as trainers on a variety of NIH training grants administered through the School and other units on campus. The UW-Madison is a top-tier institution for research and graduate training with $1.16 billion in annual expenditures for research across all fields, about half of which comes from federal awards. The campus embraces a culture of collaboration, collegiality and inclusion, and the exceptionally high quality of life offered by Madison, Wisconsin provides an outstanding environment in which to pursue an academic career.
Salary and a start-up package will be commensurate with the rank and experience of the successful candidate.
