The Ahlquist laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is seeking a highly motivated research technician to study the molecular mechanisms of genome replication and host interactions in positive-strand RNA viruses. Projects include multiple aspects of the structure, assembly and function of viral RNA replication complexes, which are fascinating molecular machines and major targets for virus control. These studies integrate molecular genetics, biochemistry, and cutting-edge cryo-electron microscopy, and provide excellent opportunities to expand skills.
The successful candidate will join a dynamic, multidisciplinary team with diverse backgrounds and expertise in a well-equipped, interactive research environment on the campus of the UW-Madison. We offer an extraordinary work environment built around a multi-disciplinary fusion of ideas, state-of-the-art facilities, and commitment to mentorship. UW-Madison consistently ranks among the top U.S. universities for research and development and the City of Madison among the 'best places to live in the US' with a diversity of outdoor and cultural opportunities.
