This is a tenure-track faculty position within the Department of
Medicine, Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, at
the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
The incumbent will function as a physician-scientist, engaging in
active collaborative research, providing clinical patient care for
patients with Endocrine related diseases at UW Health approved
locations, and teaching medical students, residents and fellows
within the context of their clinical practice. Opportunities for
didactic teaching and participation in other educational activities
in the division may also be available.
The Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at
UW-Madison includes 19 faculty, nine Advanced Practice Providers,
and five Fellows. The division's faculty lead cutting-edge
NIH-funded research programs in diabetes, obesity, metabolic bone
disease, and endocrine-related cancers that complement existing UW
strengths in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine, type 1
and type 2 diabetes, islet transplantation, cancer biology,
nutrition and public health. The division is currently undergoing a
significant expansion in research related to diabetes and obesity
to build on our strong tradition of interdisciplinary translational
research in metabolism across campus.
Collaboration is an integral part of our approach. Focusing on team
science, the division's faculty collaborate with some of the
world's top scientists here at UW including experts in stem cell
biology and regenerative medicine, aging, type 1 and type 2
diabetes, islet transplantation, cancer biology, nutrition, and
public health. The outstanding research environment at the
University of Wisconsin-Madison, which is home to some of the top
basic science departments in the nation and a vibrant scientific
community, is a unique asset of our program. In addition, our
researchers have a close relationship with the Institute for
Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), which provides support
for all aspects of clinical/translational research including
intramural funding opportunities.
This is a tenure track position and will involve research, teaching
and patient care as expected of a tenured faculty member. Research
time will be devoted to the general field of diabetes,
endocrinology and metabolism. Clinical responsibilities will
include seeing patients with Endocrine related diseases in the
outpatient clinic at UW Health approved locations. An equitable
role in the teaching activities of the Endocrinology Division will
be expected along with attendance at Division Grand Rounds, fellow
conferences, and precepting residents/fellows in clinics and while
on the inpatient service.
University and community service will be expected as
