As an independent research organization, the Morgridge Institute for Research explores uncharted scientific territory to discover tomorrow’s cures. In affiliation with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, we support researchers who take a fearless approach to advancing human health in emerging fields such as regenerative biology, metabolism, virology and medical engineering. Through public programming, we work to inspire scientific curiosity in everyday life.
The Coon Laboratory develops and applies mass spectrometric technology to study human health. We use these tools to answer fundamental questions in cell biology and to study human diseases including Alzheimer's, diabetes, heart failure, cancer, obesity, asthma, among several others. The research team currently consists of twelve Ph.D. students, two postdoctoral fellows, two undergraduate researchers, and six staff scientists.
This position will serve as the administrative manager of the NIH Center for Quantitative Biology of Complex Systems (NCQBCS), an NIH Biotechnology Research Resource that is the central focus of the Coon Laboratory. This center has the mission of developing new technologies to make whole proteome analysis faster and broadly accessible. In addition to our technology development mission, we apply these technologies to various biomedical problems through collaboration. For those seeking to learn basic proteomic methodology or advanced training in our techniques, we offer hands-on learning experiences. This position is expected to establish and maintain effective working relationships with diverse individuals and groups at all levels of the organization to advance the mission of the center while working independently using initiative, creativity, and judgment to manage projects and solve problems.
