Postdoc Researcher, Tissue Regeneration, University of Wisconsin – Madison

Posted 9/10/2021

Requirements: Ph.D. trained in, but not limited to, developmental biology, molecular biology, tissue regeneration, or animal genetics.

Job Duties: Perform scholarly research for tissue regeneration using zebrafish as a model system. Research projects 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/or 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.
