Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to draw your attention to an outstanding opportunity for an individual with leadership expertise in high-resolution cryo-electron microscopy to join the faculty in the Department of Biochemistry at University of Wisconsin-Madison. For more information, use this url:
We are requesting your help in identifying candidates who will have the capability to carry out a vigorous, externally funded research program at the forefront of the application or the development of cryo-electron microscopy (or both). Please feel free to forward this message to any individuals you think would be a suitable candidate or contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.

Candidates who have already identified compelling biological research interests suitable for investigation by cryo-electron microscopy, who show exemplary skills in public presentation, teaching and scholarly writing, and who have interests in participating in the sustainable operation of our new state-of-the-art research infrastructure will be given highest priority. Candidate may be at any tenure-track rank, and we will continue our search until a suitable candidate is hired.

The Department of Biochemistry is leading this campus-wide initiative with support from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, the School of Medicine and Public Health, the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, the College of Engineering, Morgridge Institute for Research, and other campus partners to assure that the start-up package and other parts of the recruitment are sufficiently compelling to attract the interest of top candidates in this exciting and highly competitive field. To start, we have purchased a Titan Krios that will come on line in Fall 2018. A PhD-level support staff member has been hired to build the awareness and collaborator base. The successful candidate will incorporate access to this instrument into their own research program and play a leading role in shaping the deployment of the Krios microscope for the enhancement of campus research activities.

As one of the largest and most vibrant research institutions in the world, UW-Madison is an excellent place to carry out research. The campus embraces experts with interesting questions in virtually every discipline of research that might be impacted by cryo-EM, and so opportunities to collaborate abound. We hope you will partner with us to identify the best possible candidate to join us.

For more information, please, feel free to contact:
