Academic appointments will be within one of the MCW Departments of Pediatrics, Medicine, or Microbiology & Immunology, with memberships in the Center for Immunology and the MCW CC. These positions provide attractive start-up packages and outstanding opportunities for collaboration with basic, translational, and clinical investigators.
