Full-time research intern Positions in Stem Cells and Neurodevelopment at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

Two full-time research intern positions are available at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to investigate mechanisms regulating brain development (details: https://zhao-lab.com/). We use a combination of molecular, cellular, genetics, and imaging methods to investigate transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms that regulate mammalian brain development and their implications in neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism and fragile X syndrome.

The Research Interns will work closely with experienced scientists and contribute to research projects and publications. The interns will learn techniques and generate data using state-of-art molecular and cell biology methods. The interns will also carry out some lab management duties, including maintaining stocks, equipment keeping, etc. In addition, the interns will also learn scientific concepts and participate in research presentation and manuscript writing.

The candidates should be a recent (within 1 year) college graduate with bachelor’s degree in a biology-related major. Previous work experience (e.g. as an undergraduate) in a biomedical research laboratory is a plus. A minimum of 1-year commitment is required but 2 years commitment is highly preferred.

If interested, please email a cover letter, resume, and contact information of at least 2 references, to Dr. Xinyu Zhao: xinyu.zhao@wisc.edu

Deadline is June 1, 2024
