Initiative in Social Genomics Cluster Faculty Positions

The Initiative in Social Genomics is one of six successful proposals for Cluster Hires at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The aim is for UW to become home to the largest and most innovative group of researchers pursuing topics in Social Genomics in the world, and to expand research into the impact of Genomics in a wide range of areas.

As part of the new Cluster Hiring Initiative in Social Genomics, an interdisciplinary group of scholars is seeking to hire three new tenure-track faculty members, all with appointments in relevant home departments, with expertise and interests in Social Genomics, defined as a field of research that integrates theories, data, and methods across the social, health, and genetic sciences.

These areas of interest are broadly characterized in three new tenure-track faculty searches in Social Genomics. See the flyer or the webpage for more information.
