Quantitative Biology of Virus-Host Interactions
A position is available immediately for a highly motivated individual to
develop methods that advance our mechanistic and systems-level understanding
of virus and host processes during virus infections.  Our approach combines
single-cell measures of viral and cellular processes, within-cell readouts
of viral and anti-viral intermediates, use of established and novel culture
systems, mathematical modeling, and quantitative imaging of infection
spread.  Our studies focus on RNA viruses relevant to human health and
technology development, including human rhinovirus and vesicular stomatitis
virus.  This NIH-supported work involves close collaboration among
biological and physical scientists, including molecular biologists,
engineers and clinicians. Applicants with a strong background in
quantitative imaging or data-driven mathematical modeling are especially
encouraged to apply. 

We pursue our research at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, a major
public- and private-sponsored initiative, housed in an award-winning
facility, that promotes cross-disciplinary training and research, as well as
public outreach, for societal benefit (see  Madison is
an attractive and affordable city surrounded by beautiful lakes.  Among U.S.
cities, Madison routinely ranks among “best places to live,” and residents
thrive on its diversity of educational, cultural and outdoor opportunities.  

Interested candidates should submit by email a single PDF that includes a
letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and contact information for at least
three references to:
