The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
Working with the Zika virus and clinical samples that contain viruses is an essential function of this position. UW-Madison complies with all applicable health and safety regulations. Nevertheless, working with pathogens poses health risks. Adults infected with Zika virus can experience negative health consequences. Individuals, both men and women, can transmit Zika to their offspring through semen, gestation, and breastmilk, which can cause birth and developmental defects. Applicants are encouraged to consult their healthcare provider about risks. UW-Madison will provide necessary personal protective equipment, but a successful candidate must be willing to work with the Zika virus despite the aforementioned known risks.
