JOB TITLE:

Research Scientist

JOB TYPE:

Full-time

JOB LOCATION:

Madison Wiltz United States

JOB DESCRIPTION:

jpg\" height=\" 86\" width=\" 250\" alt=\"Logo\" border=\"0\"/>

Job Summary:

The Research Scientist will play key roles in identifying research problems and developing research methodologies and procedures, implementing in vitro and in vivo experiments and training students.

The Engin Laboratory within the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry (BMC) is focused on understanding how cellular stress response and organelle dysfunction plays a role in beta cell physiology and pathology.
Current projects involve studying molecular mechanisms of cellular stress responses in pancreatic beta cells in autoimmune diabetes, ER-mitochondria communication, lysosome dysfunction, cellular senescence and the crosstalk between stressed beta cells and immune cells.
The work involves working with the beta cell or immune cell-specific mouse models of the unfolded protein response pathway and mechanistic studies using cell culture (primary mouse and human islets), biochemical and immunological assays (Engin et al.
, Sci Transl Med 2013, Lee et al, Cell Metab 2020, Chen, et al.
, Nat Comm 2022).
More information about our research and publications can be found at enginlab.
org.


Candidates should have demonstrated ability to work effectively in a collaborative manner with faculty and staff, as well as other institutional representatives; strong organizational, written, and verbal communication skills in English; high levels of critical thinking, excellent technical skills, and a strong track-record of accomplishment and productivity in research as evidenced by high-quality publications related to physiology, immunology, metabolism, cell signaling/signal transduction and disease mechanisms.


Since our inception in 1921, BMC has celebrated 100 years of discovery related to biochemical research, integrating fundamental molecular mechanisms with human disease, within the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.


Of the 16 faculty, five affiliate faculty, and emeritus faculty, several have been recognized with national and international honors, including by the National Academy of Sciences, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, American Academy of Microbiology, and American Association for the Advancement of Science.


The department is housed within the Hector Deluca Biochemical Sciences complex, a state-of-the-art research and instructional complex located on Henry Mall, and has a reputation for carrying out federally funded, high level, competitive biomedical research.
