Current HHMI Employees, click here to apply via your Workday account.

The Newmark Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is looking for an ambitious and self-motivated scientist interested in understanding the mechanisms by which stem cells drive regeneration in free-living flatworms (planarians) as well as disease pathology in parasitic blood flukes (i.e., schistosomes). Guided by experiments pioneered in planarians, our team is leveraging shared aspects of flatworm biology to characterize schistosome stem cells and development with the goal of understanding their biology and ultimately developing effective therapeutics. The successful candidate will have the chance to work in the exciting and rapidly expanding field of planarian and schistosome biology, with opportunities for interdisciplinary research. More information on the Newmark lab can be found at our website or on Twitter: @planapalooza.

Principal Responsibilities

  • Spearhead projects to investigate development/regeneration in planarians and/or intra-mammalian development of schistosomes.

  • Independently design and conduct experiments under the supervision of the Principal Investigator.

  • Keep up-to-date of pertinent literature to inform project design and experimental approaches.

  • Present data to the entire lab (~1-2 times a year), and occasionally at scientific meetings.

  • Train, supervise, and collaborate with other students and scientists.

  • Share research findings via peer-reviewed publications.

Qualifications

  • Ph.D. (currently or by May 2021) with experience in developmental biology, parasitology, immunology, genetics, biochemistry, or molecular biology.

  • Experience working with rodents preferred but not required.

  • Strong scientific publication history.

  • Excellent troubleshooting and organizational abilities.

  • Excellent oral communication and interpersonal skills.

Physical Requirements 

Remaining in a normal seated or standing position for extended periods of time; reaching and grasping by extending hand(s) or arm(s); dexterity to manipulate objects with fingers, for example using a keyboard; communication skills using the spoken word; ability to see and hear within normal parameters; ability to move about workspace. The position requires mobility, including the ability to move materials weighing up to several pounds (such as a laptop computer or tablet).

Persons with disabilities may be able to perform the essential duties of this position with reasonable accommodation. Requests for reasonable accommodation will be evaluated on an individual basis.
