Concordia University (CU), a Lutheran higher education institution in Mequon, Wisconsin, committed to helping students grow in mind, spirit, and body, is currently seeking a qualified and motivated professional for our Fellowship Program in the Department of Pharmaceutical and Administrative Sciences of the School of Pharmacy (SOP).

We are seeking recent graduates of terminal degree programs in the biological and chemical (pharmaceutical) sciences for this fellowship. Recent doctorates and post-docs are ideal. Professional doctorates will be considered. Ideally, the candidate would bring laboratory skills which would complement the skills of our faculty, creating a synergism that results in research advances. The candidate should also demonstrate a high interest in teaching as a career since one of the major purposes is to provide teaching experience to future professors. Candidates with a specific interest in research prioritized to unmet needs and service to the underserved are encouraged. Prospective candidates may contact faculty members directly about their research (https://www.cuw.edu/academics/schools/sop/faculty.html).

Fellows will spend 50% of their effort in mentored research with a CUW SOP faculty member.  Fellows will spend 25% of their time in a variety of faculty preparation activities in SOP, including both teaching and grant proposal writing, such as submission of an NIH K-award by the Fellow.  The Fellow may elect to complete a Master's in Education with emphasis on teaching and learning.  The graduate will be prepared specifically for success in pharmaceutical science faculty positions as well as general academic positions in life sciences.

We anticipate that our Fellows will become highly effective faculty members who will be sought after for their advanced academic preparation and experience developing service oriented curriculum, research, and outreach educational activities.  

For more information please contact the chair of the department, Dr. Robert Burlage at Robert.burlage@cuw.edu or call 262-243-2774.
