Post-doctoral Openings in Systems Biology (starting in 2008)

We are advancing new technologies to better understand the growth, spread and evolution of viruses. Active and new NIH-supported projects are in three areas: (1) flow-enhanced spread and characterization of infections in microfluidic devices, (2) phenotype distributions from measurements and models of infections initiated by single virus particles, (3) dynamics of virus populations in anti-viral environments. Systems of current interest are influenza virus and vesicular stomatitis virus. The most competitive applicants will be exceptionally creative, highly-motivated individuals with significant experience in:

Engineering or physical sciences: modeling or simulation of reactive systems, fluid and particle dynamics, and/or microfluidics
Quantitative biology: live-cell reporting of gene expression, RNA and protein quantification, microscopy, imaging and analysis, and/or flow cytometry

Madison, Wisconsin is an attractive and affordable city surrounded by beautiful lakes. It routinely ranks as a 'best place to live,' and residents thrive on its rich diversity of outdoor and cultural opportunities. All researchers in our laboratory develop and maintain
standards of institutionally-approved biosafety (BSL 2) protocols.
