Postdoctoral Positions


 Department of Surgery

Voice Research Training Grant –  Stem Cell Laboratories

Link:  https://www.surgery.wisc.edu/education-training/training-for-researchers/voice-research-training-program/

Positions available on a NIH NIDCD T32 training grant here at the University of Wisconsin Madison in the Department of Surgery for Predoctoral and Postdoctoral fellows.  The Voice Research Training program is one of the only of its kind in the country focusing on well-rounded training in voice science.  This program includes a pool of experienced, extramurally funded trainers from a. variety of voice-related disciplines including surgery, medicine, oncology, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and communication sciences and disorders.  Specific to stem cell research – Dr. Susan Thibeault whose work involves the use of induced pluripotent stem cells and adult stem cells; Dr. Nathan Welham who has an aligned research focus in tissue engineering with adult stem cells, Dr. William Murphy in Biomedical Engineering whose work with bioinspired materials and stem cells is outstanding ; and Dr. Sean Palacek with Chemical and Biological Engineering who uses engineering platforms to regulate human pluripotent stem cell differentiation.

Please apply for these competitive fellowships. Information can be obtained via emailing  voiceresearchtraining@surgery.wisc.edu.


Stem Cell Virology

Two NIH-funded postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Robert F. Kalejta in the Institute for Molecular VirologyMcArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research, and Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The Kalejta lab is interested in Human Cytomegalovirus replication and pathogenesis, and focuses specifically on viral latency and modulation of the cell cycle (searchGoogle or PubMed for more information). Projects are available specifically to use ES and IPS cells as models to study viral latency and reactivation. No virology experience is needed, but the ability to culture ES/IPS cells is required. Please forward a cover letter briefly describing your past research, future goals, and preferred starting date, along with a CV containing the names and email addresses of three references to: Dr. Robert KalejtaUW-Madison is an equal opportunity employer.


UW-Madison Blood Research Program

Emery Bresnick Cell & Regenerative Biology web page

​The Bresnick laboratory is recruiting one or two postdoctoral fellows to join our group in the UW-Madison Blood Research Program in the Wisconsin Institutes For Medical Research (WIMR) at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. The Blood Research Program provides a cutting-edge scholarly environment for conducting innovative basic and translational research. We use multidisciplinary approaches to understand important biological processes, including stem/progenitor cell function, normal and malignant hematopoiesis, and epigenetics. Such approaches include genomics, proteomics, chemical genetics, and computational analysis, as well as traditional molecular, cellular, and biochemical methodologies. In addition to elucidating biological principles, we aim to develop innovative therapeutic strategies based on targeting novel mechanisms.

The successful candidate(s) will develop both independent and collaborative research efforts in one or more of our focal areas and will obtain rigorous training in the further development of critical thinking skills, grant/manuscript writing and other skills required to successfully compete for academic and private sector positions in biomedical science. Please apply to ehbresni@wisc.edu with your cv, and details regarding potential areas of interest. UW-Madison is an equal opportunity employer.
