Requirements: Successful applicants will be highly motivated scientists with a strong record of published success and a PhD or equivalent. While not required, a strong applicant will have experience in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, or bioinformatics. We believe successful science is done in a diverse, inclusive and equitable lab, and applicants who can work with us to create such an environment are particularly encouraged to apply.

Job Duties: The Harrison Lab at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is seeking a highly motivated postdoc to join our team studying transcriptional regulation of developmental transitions. We use a multidisciplinary approach, including genomics, imaging, biochemistry and genome engineering, to investigate how transcription factors at the top of gene regulatory networks control cell fate in both the early embryo and neural stem cells of Drosophila melanogaster. Because the processes we study are conserved across metazoans, our research has widespread impacts on our understanding of development and disease. This fully funded position will provide the postdoctoral trainee opportunities to develop high-impact research projects, hone grant and paper writing skills, and present research at national and international conferences. Projects in the lab are currently funded by an R01, a MIRA, an American Cancer Society Research Scholars grant, a Vallee Scholars Award and a H.I Romnes Award. To apply, send a CV and cover letter explaining your prior research and specific interest in the lab to Melissa Harrison (mharrison3@wisc.edu).

Research Associate (Postdoctoral) Medical Microbiology and Immunology Rolling review

Requirements: Successful applicants will be scientifically ambitious with a strong record of published research success and a PhD or equivalent. Experience with influenza virus is not required, although a strong background in virology, biochemistry, molecular biology, high-throughput sequencing and coding/bioinformatics would be advantageous. We believe a diverse, inclusive and equitable lab is the best way to do science, and our actions try to match this belief. Applications are particularly welcome those who can contribute to such an environment.

Job Duties: Funded postdoc position studying virus:host interactions and replication dynamics in the Mehle Lab. The Mehle lab at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is looking for a highly motivated postdoc to study the influenza viral replication machinery and the host factors that regulate expression of viral genes and replication of the viral genome. We seek a new lab member to maintain our diverse and supportive environment. Influenza virus exploits and subverts host processes while at the same time evading cellular antiviral responses. The balance between these pro- and antiviral forces influences the outcome of a viral infection and pathogenicity to the host. The Mehle Lab studies this battle with a focus on the viral replication machinery. We have three major themes that address the gaps in our knowledge about the virus:host interface - 1) define how influenza virus engages, and even exploits, antiviral responses to support viral replication 2) determine how RNA:protein interactions impact translation of viral messages 3) investigate the population dynamics of influenza virus as it replicates and moves within and between infected hosts (collaboration with the Friedrich lab). We couple classic molecular virology with the newest approaches in genetic screening, genomics, and proteomics (e.g. we currently idssect influenza virus replication using multiple CRISPR-based techniques, CLIP-Seq, RiboSeq, quantitative proteomics, bioinformatics, and rely on the creativity of lab members to bring new techniques and ideas to the project). The projects are currently funded by 2 R01s and a BWF PATH fellowship, in addition to NSF and LSRF grants obtained by lab members. Find out more at mehlelab.com or @mehlelab

Research Associate (Postdoctoral) Chemical and Biological Engineering Until filled

Requirements: Applicants must hold a PhD in a field related to chemical engineering, chemistry, industrial engineering, or similar fields. Strong computational skills, including experience in either molecular modeling (quantum chemical calculations and molecular dynamics simulations) and/or process modeling (process synthesis and simulation, optimization), are expected. The successful applicant will have strong writing and communication skills. Experience with separations technologies and thermodynamic property prediction will be viewed favorably. Applicants should provide (1) a letter summarizing research experience and interests, (2) a current CV, and (3) contact information for three references.

Job Duties: The University of Wisconsin–Madison is a top institution for research that involves the intersection of computing with engineering. We seek to fill a Research Associate (Postdoc) position with the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC). The postdoc will conduct research related to the design of solvent systems for liquid-liquid extraction. The valorization of lignocellulosic biomass requires separation technologies capable of recovering bioproducts with high efficacy and low cost. Liquid-liquid extraction is a promising separation technology, but it requires the identification of solvent systems capable of the effective separation of specific chemicals. Accordingly, we seek to develop a computational framework that would couple molecular modeling with process modeling to design optimal solvent systems for the separation of GLBRC-relevant bioproducts. The successful applicant will be independent, motivated, capable of working as part of a collaborative team, and will have substantial experience in computational modeling (including molecular and/or process modeling). The position will be located at the University of Wisconsin–Madison in Madison, WI. The postdoc will be jointly supervised by Reid Van Lehn, who has expertise in molecular modeling for the prediction of thermodynamic properties, and Christos Maravelias, who has expertise in process modeling for the development of separations processes. We expect the postdoc to integrate these disparate computational techniques to develop broadly applicable liquid-phase separation methods that will be applicable to experimental efforts ongoing with the GLBRC. This exciting project will further involve extensive collaboration with experimentalists throughout GLBRC to improve the recovery of chemicals derived from biomass feedstocks.
