Research Associate (Postdoctoral) Anesthesiology Sept 1 2022

Requirements: A PhD at the time of appointment in Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Molecular and Cell Biology or a closely related field. Skills: A high degree of motivation, detail oriented, organized, excellent communication written and verbal, time management skills, willingness to help train graduate students, ability to receive and provide feedback, collegiality, willingness to learn new skills, and strong ability to troubleshoot a broad array of problems. Preferred qualifications: experience in one or more of the following areas - mouse behavior, mammalian cell culture, IHC tissue imaging, neuronal physiology, functional genomics assays. Ideally, a strong track record of publications and independent funding.

Job Duties: The Campbell Research Lab in the Department of Anesthesiology at UW-Madison is seeking a post-doctoral scholar interested in the molecular mechanisms that drive chronic pain. Pain is pervasive and devastating. Poorly treated chronic pain is the largest source of disability in America with an estimated economic cost of more than 500 billion dollars per year. Moreover, existing strategies to disrupt pain (e.g. opiates) have well known and highly undesirable effects on reward circuits in the CNS. Better strategies for preventing chronic pain are desperately needed. In the vast majority of cases, pain originates in the periphery in a specialized type of sensory neuron called a nociceptor. Long-lived changes in their excitability - which are intimately linked to chronic pain - require de novo protein synthesis. Multiple groups have shown that peripheral inhibition of protein synthesis diminishes pain associated behaviors in pre-clinical rodent models. This suggests that translation, likely in nerve fibers, is critical for nociceptive plasticity. But what are the mRNAs that need to be locally translated and what governs the specificity of protein synthesis in nociceptors? To address these key questions, we make use of functional genomics, pharmacology, physiology, and genetic approaches. The ideal candidate for this position will work with Dr. Campbell to develop projects related to our overarching goal of discovering new targets and pathways that can be exploited to diminish pain associated behaviors. A list of the lab's publications can be found at www.RNAcentral.com.

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
