Requirements: PhD in Electrical Engineering with emphasis on mathematical analysis, image/signal processing, machine learning and preferably optimization theory.

Job Duties: The UW–Madison Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) is recruiting a postdoc who will have the unique opportunity to develop statistical image inference and machine learning methodologies for atmospheric science applications; the postdoc's work has the potential to directly impact current and future NASA and NOAA spaceborne missions. These missions include a variety of active (e.g. lidar) and passive (e.g. imager / radiometer) instruments which provide measurements for both climate and operational science. The postdoc will be focused on the following statistical image inference and machine learning problems: denoising very low signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) nighttime images as observed from space, denoising low SNR lidar observations and inferring the optical properties of aerosols (dust/smoke) and clouds from lidar, inferring the motion of multiple layers of clouds from geostationary images (i.e. sequence of image separated by 10min), identification of cloud types and aerosols from geostationary images. The statistical and machine learning aspects of these problems are similar to that in medical imaging and related fields. For example, lidar denoising and inference methodologies currently employed at SSEC are based on medical denoising methodologies. The successful candidate will work with both NASA, NOAA and NCAR instrument teams to apply new statistical and machine learning methods and will have the opportunity to develop collaborative connections with the atmospheric science community.

Research Associate (Postdoctoral) Waisman Center Open until filled

Requirements: Ph.D. in Hearing Science, Audiology, Neuroscience, Biomedical Physics/ Engineering, Computer Science, or related disciplines is required. Technical skills in signal processing and programming are highly desired. Previous research experience in EEG, neuroplasticity, psychoacoustics, and clinical audiology certification are desired but not mandatory. Interested candidates should send a CV, a brief statement/summary of research interests and contact information of two references to Viji (veaswar@wisc.edu).

Job Duties: The Child Hearing Lab (PI: Viji Easwar) at the Waisman Center, University of Wisconsin–Madison, is looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work on projects that use electroencephalography (EEG) and behavioral methods to understand developmental aspects of speech encoding during early childhood. The anticipated duration of the position is 3 years. The position will involve setting up experiments, data collection/overseeing data collection, processing, analysis, and interpretation of EEG, and behavioral data. It is expected that the applicant will write, and assist in the writing of, manuscripts and grant applications, and attend conferences to present data. The position involves collaboration with Dr. Sriram Boothalingam (University of Wisconsin–Madison) on calibration-related aspects. Several Doctor of Audiology and undergraduate students take part in research in the lab providing mentorship opportunities for the postdoctoral fellow. Opportunities to gain experience in other audiological measures like otoacoustic emissions are available through collaborations with the Efferent Systems Lab led by Dr. Sriram Boothalingam and other labs at the Waisman Center. The University of Wisconsin–Madison has a rich history of hearing research with researchers spanning across departments such as Communication Sciences and Disorders, Neuroscience, Anesthesiology, Otolaryngology, and Population Health Sciences. The environment is collegial and highly conducive for research and sharing ideas. The Waisman Center, where the lab is located, houses more than 50 researchers from 27 departments working towards understanding human development and developmental disabilities and has several graduate students and postdocs, providing an excellent community for peer networking. Madison is a vibrant and naturally beautiful city well-known for food options, and provisions for several outdoor activities, including well-maintained and connected bike paths.

Research Associate (Postdoctoral) Biomolecular Chemistry Rolling review

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
