Faculty Position in Cryo-EM Image Analysis

*** only a few days left to apply !!! ***

The Morgridge Institute for Research, in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Departments of Biochemistry and of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics, seek a tenure track assistant/associate/full professor to develop and collaboratively apply cutting-edge computational and statistical image analysis approaches to advance the use of cryo-electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) in structural and cell biology.

Please bring this position to the attention of all potentially interested applicants. To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by December 15, 2018, but the search will continue until the position is filled. For application procedures and further information, please see: https://morgridge.org/job-posting/investigator-cryo-em/

This position is part of a major campus cryo-EM expansion, comprising new faculty hires in experimental and computational cryo-EM, and a facility to house four new cryo-microscopes including Thermo-Fisher’s 300 kV Titan Krios, 200 kV Talos Arctica, 120 kV Talos L120C, an Aquilos cryo-FIB-SEM.

Candidates should have a PhD and productive record in computer sciences, math, physics, statistics, computational biology or another relevant area, demonstrated ability to work in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment, and deep motivation to advance image analysis to match recent cryo-EM developments. Examples of relevant approaches include but are not limited to image analysis, machine learning, computer vision, and data visualization.

The successful candidate will join a dynamic, expanding community of cryo-EM investigators and an image analysis community spanning light and electron microscopy. The interactive partner units in this hire will mutually support this position with substantial computational facilities, diverse biological collaborators and computational colleagues, high quality students, and other resources. Following proven, attractive models, the successful candidate will become a Morgridge Institute Investigator and a UW-Madison faculty member, providing many synergistic benefits.

Please let me know if you have any questions. With best regards,
