We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to join the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the lab of Dr. Feyza Engin. The lab aims to understand the mechanisms of pancreatic beta cell dysfunction and death in autoimmune diabetes, with focus on endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and ER/mitochondria dysfunction, beta cell-immune cell crosstalk and other mechanisms that may contribute to beta cell death. More information about our research and publications (Cell Metab, 2020, Sci Tansl Med, 2013, Cell Rep 2016) can be found at https://enginlab.org/
Candidates should have a doctoral degree (PhD) in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology or related field. The ideal candidate is a creative, productive and self-motivated individual with the ability to think critically, learn quickly, function both independently and within a team, and possess strong written and verbal communication skills. One or more of the following skills is highly desired: Working with transgenic mouse colonies, islet biology, epigenetics, immunological assays (adoptive transfers, multicolor FACS analysis), or prior experience with large data sets (sc-RNAseq, ATAC-seq, ChIPseq).
The UW-Madison is the flagship school in the University of Wisconsin system and is a top-tier research institution. In 2017, it was ranked 6th by the National Science Foundation among all US schools for total dollars spent on research. The Engin Lab is a dynamic group in the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry. Madison is consistently listed as one of the best small cities to live. The university presence contributes immensely to the Madison cultural scene—see a Broadway show, eat at a national award-winning restaurant, experience nationally-touring musical acts—all at about the average cost of living for the US. Madison is an excellent place to raise a family, with good schools and daycare centers within walking or biking distance of home and campus. Surrounded by three lakes, extensive back-country areas, and with a crisp but snowy and bright winter, outdoor activities abound, regardless of season.
