The University of Wisconsin-Madison seeks faculty candidates for a tenure track faculty position in the broad area of Advanced Biomanufacturing, with a specific emphasis on advancing our understanding of regenerative biology and cellular therapy.
This position is a part of a campus-wide cluster hiring initiative to add to the vibrant community in this area at UW-Madison. Participating units include: the Departments of Cell and Regenerative Biology, Biomedical Engineering, Orthopedics & Rehabilitation, Chemical & Biological Engineering, and Pediatrics. Tenure home for this position will be Cell and Regenerative Biology. Further information regarding this initiative can be found at: https://facstaff.provost.wisc.edu/cluster-hiring- initiative/.
UW is a recognized world leader in regenerative biology and medicine, and a national leader in stem cell and tissue engineering approaches. In addition, UW is one of the few institutions in the U.S. that co-localizes top programs in life sciences, engineering, clinical medicine, and veterinary medicine. These local strategic strengths and resources make UW an ideal location for new faculty in emerging areas of regenerative biology and stem cell therapies. The current hiring focus will complement existing strengths throughout the university, and will continue to build strategic strength in this rapidly emerging field.
