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/Associate/Senior) Scientist in the Pagliarini lab within its growing Metabolism Theme. The Pagliarini lab takes a multi-disciplinary approach to investigate uncharacterized proteins. By integrating classic biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics with large-scale proteomics and systems approaches, the Pagliarini lab aims to elucidate the biochemical underpinnings of mitochondrial dysfunction in human disease. The successful candidate will have a strong analytical background and an interest in the research scope described above, and will be responsible for fully leveraging protein expression and purification technologies to support the research area. The candidate will provide technical support regarding strategy and implementation of purification initiatives, and the subsequent design of protein-based assays. Areas of focus include, but are not limited to, purification and biochemical characterization of proteins related to coenzyme Q biosynthesis, complex I assembly, and mitochondrial phosphorylation.
