Requirements: The Venturelli lab is recruiting research interns in several areas of microbial systems and synthetic biology. Areas of interest include ecological systems biology of the human gut microbiota, molecular basis of microbial interactions including metabolite interchange, design of genetic circuits for realizing novel functions in complex environments and microfluidic platforms to probe spatiotemporal behaviors of microbial systems. A B.S. or B.S.E. in biosciences or engineering is required.
Job Duties: The Venturelli lab investigates the evolutionary design principles of microbial systems across multiple scales spanning intracellular networks to microbial communities. Biological and engineering design rules will be exploited to design genetic circuits for realizing novel functions in complex environments. Our research combines multiplexed measurements of single cells and populations with concepts from engineering and dynamical systems for systems-level characterization and design.
Begin Date: Flexible

Requirements: A research intern opportunity is available in the Landick lab for a highly motivated individual with a recent Bachelor's or Master's degree, who is interested in gene regulation across multiple scales. Our research seeks to connect the structure, function, and mechanism of the central cellular information processor, RNA polymerase, and its diverse regulators to genome-scale mechanisms that control when and how genes are expressed or silenced. We use bacteria as model systems and seek to understand the complex network of noncoding RNAs, nucleoid organizers, transcriptional regulators, and biomolecular machines that controls cellular gene expression in microbes and microbiomes.
Job Duties: This is an outstanding opportunity for a creative, motivated recipient of a baccalaureate degree in 2017 or May-June, 2018 who seeks additional training before entering a graduate or professional training program. We seek interns to work on one of two projects: (1) use of microbial genetics and genome-scale, high-throughput sequencing based assays of gene regulation and RNA polymerase function, including ChIP-Seq, NET-Seq, Ribo-Seq, and TSS-Seq to understand how regulatory mechanisms work in living cells; or (2) biochemical analysis of RNA polymerase structure-function using in vitro transcription, cryo-electron microscopy, or single-molecule biochemistry. The position requires a two-year commitment. An ideal candidate will be excited to pursue a scientific research career; able to work well in a highly interactive group; able to work semi-independently after a period of training; possess strong quantitative skills and knowledge of or ability to learn statistical and computational methods; and have 1-2 years of lab experience as an undergraduate. UW–Madison and our research group offer an outstanding training environment for research interns, and have a strong track-record of alumni achievement in graduate school and beyond. To apply, please send a cover letter explaining your career goals and research interests, a CV, and names of three references to ramooney@.wisc.edu. Questions are welcome. Landick lab
