UW-Madison invites applicants for a full time, 9-month, tenure track faculty member at the rank of Assistant Professor in the Department of Nutritional Sciences. This newly-created position is supported by the Dairy Innovation Hub in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. The Hub is an exciting new initiative at three of the leading UW agricultural schools (UW-Madison, UW-Platteville, and UW-River Falls) and fosters dairy research, education and outreach in the priority areas of Stewarding Land & Water Resources, Ensuring Animal Health & Welfare, Growing Farm Businesses & Communities, and Enriching Human Health and Nutrition. The position will support the "Enriching Human Health and Nutrition" priority area, and will have a tenure home within the Department of Nutritional Sciences. The vision for this priority area is to elucidate novel links between milk components and human health leading to new dairy product(s) for individuals across the human life cycle consistent with "personalized nutrition". The position carries a commitment to the three functions of research, instruction, outreach, and service, as well as professional and university service as appropriate to the position and rank. Additionally, as a Hub-supported position, the faculty member will also have the opportunity to collaborate with other Hub researchers, pursue Hub funding opportunities, and participate in Hub programs.
