Job Summary:

The Wisconsin Blood Cancer Research Institute (WBCRI), in collaboration with UW Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC) and several departments at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (School of Medicine and Public Health), is recruiting a full-time, tenure-track Professor. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a cutting-edge, extramurally-funded, independent (and collaborative) research program focusing on normal or malignant hematopoiesis and related areas. This opportunity will allow the scientist or physician-scientist to develop a major research program on basic and translational science relevant to blood cancer. The highly supportive scholarly environment resides in state-of-the-art facilities. The successful candidate will be a member of WBCRI and UWCCC, an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center, which provides outstanding collaborative opportunities and exceptional core facilities, including flow cytometry, informatics, metabolomics, circulating biomarker, genome editing/animal models, pathology and small animal imaging among others. Research programs utilize genetic mouse models, human pluripotent cells, primary human samples and diverse systems to address problems on normal and malignant hematopoiesis, including regulatory networks controlling stem and progenitor cells, bone marrow microenvironment, cell therapeutics and mechanisms underlying myeloid leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: innovative models to understand hematopoiesis, genome/epigenome biology, hematology-immunology interface, single-cell biology and multi-omics. We offer competitive start-up packages, including substantial salary support, and a dedication to facilitate career development.
The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.


The successful candidate will be expected to (1) develop an internationally-recognized research program studying cancer, (2) attract and maintain extramural funding, (3) mentor students, and/or postdoctoral fellows, (4) teach medical students, residents, and fellows, (5) participate in faculty governance activities in the tenure home department, the school and/or University, and (6) participate in professional and/or university service. Actively participate and collaborate with other faculty in the Wisconsin Blood Cancer Research Institute and the Department of Oncology.
The successful applicant will participate in administrative and committee work to support the clinical and scholarly missions of UW Health and the School of Medicine and Public Health. An essential part of these duties will be working in a collegial relationship with other faculty members.
