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 Morgridge Institute for Research seeks a highly motivated individual to fulfill the role of Assistant Research Specialist in the newly established Cantor Laboratory within its growing Metabolism Theme. The Cantor lab studies cellular metabolism and how it is influenced by environmental factors, with a particular focus on hematological cancers and normal lymphocytes. We apply a highly interdisciplinary approach that combines principles from biochemistry, engineering, and molecular biology with cutting-edge technologies in metabolomics, functional genomics (CRISPR), and chemical genetics. The successful candidate will have both a strong analytical background and an interest in the research scope described above, and will be responsible for learning, carrying out, and ultimately assisting in the instruction of various experimental protocols to fellow team members.
