Postdoctoral Research Scientist, the Kang lab at the University of Wisconsin

Posted 4/12/2021

The Kang lab at the University of Wisconsin – Madison is seeking an outstanding and talented Postdoctoral Research Scientist who is interested in regeneration research. Our research will utilize established genetic zebrafish strains, discovered by forward genetics or generated by genome editing technique, and a wide range of molecular, cellular, biochemical and genetic approaches. The research goals are to identify novel regeneration-associated genes and to understand how injury signals are transduced to trigger tissue regeneration programs. The positions require experience with biological and biochemical techniques (subcloning, PCR, western blot, CRISPR/Cas9), imaging skills (in vivo imaging, confocal imaging, immunofluorescence, in situ hybridization, etc.) and/or genomic skills (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, and scRNA-seq). Experience in zebrafish or animal models is preferred, but not required. Successful applicants will be highly motivated with good communication skills, interest and experience in tissue regeneration research, a proven publication record, and the ability to work independently.
