Experience handling either molecular profiling data sets (transcriptome, proteome, etc.) or microscopy-based imaging will be viewed highly favorably, and a working knowledge of metabolism would be a plus. The candidate must have a proven academic publication track record, including first-author publications. Previous experience instructing and/or mentoring undergraduate and graduate students is also expected.||Position Summary: The successful candidate will conduct research focused on the basic biological mechanisms of aging as part of the Anderson laboratory. The funded project for this position opening focuses on the intersection of aging, caloric restriction (CR), and the progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathology using genetic mouse models of AD. In particular, the work will test the hypothesis that CR creates a healthy neuronal environment through changes in brain metabolism, and that these metabolic shifts will oppose AD-related pathology. The successful candidate will design and implement strategies for investigating the mechanisms connecting metabolism, caloric restriction, and aging. The candidate is also expected to explore new avenues and seek independent funding as part of their own career development. - Assist in the execution of ongoing projects performing experiments in accordance with the goals of the Metabolism of Aging Program. Compile and analyze experimental results. Prepare illustrations and data elements and contribute text and background research for manuscripts, assist with publication in scholarly journals. Develop new avenues of research both as part of the Anderson research program and in anticipation of transition to independent career. Participation at research meetings and academic conferences will also be expected, including oral and poster presentations. Principal duties: - Work both individually and collaboratively with principal investigator, collaborators, and other lab members to pursue shared and independent funding opportunities. Prepare content for grant applications. - Provide mentoring to graduate/undergraduate students and training in laboratory techniques.

We believe a diverse, inclusive and equitable lab is the best way to do science, and our actions try to match this belief. Applications are particularly welcome those who can contribute to such an environment.||Funded postdoc position studying virus:host interactions and replication dynamics in the Mehle Lab. The Mehle lab at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is looking for a highly motivated postdoc to study the influenza viral replication machinery and the host factors that regulate expression of viral genes and replication of the viral genome. We seek a new lab member to maintain our diverse and supportive environment. Influenza virus exploits and subverts host processes while at the same time evading cellular antiviral responses. The balance between these pro- and antiviral forces influences the outcome of a viral infection and pathogenicity to the host. The Mehle Lab studies this battle with a focus on the viral replication machinery. We have three major themes that address the gaps in our knowledge about the virus:host interface - 1) define how influenza virus engages, and even exploits, antiviral responses to support viral replication 2) determine how RNA:protein interactions impact translation of viral messages 3) investigate the population dynamics of influenza virus as it replicates and moves within and between infected hosts (collaboration with the Friedrich lab). We couple classic molecular virology with the newest approaches in genetic screening, genomics, and proteomics (e.g. we currently dissect influenza virus replication using multiple CRISPR-based techniques, CLIP-Seq, RiboSeq, quantitative proteomics, bioinformatics, and rely on the creativity of lab members to bring new techniques and ideas to the project).

Shawn Green (UW-Madison), Aaron Seitz (UC-Riverside) and Susanne Jaeggi (UC-Irvine) are seeking to hire a post-doctoral researcher to work on a project funded by the National Institute on Aging. The project is focused on investigating features of cognitive training that differentially lead to learning and transfer of learning in both young adults (college-aged individuals) as well as in older adults. Successful candidates should have strong technical skills, including in data analysis (R preferred), management skills, creativity and a high-level of conscientiousness, as these are required to play a lead role in this sizable project. They should also have expertise in one or more of the following areas (and knowledge of the others): working memory, cognitive training, perceptual learning, and methods of assessing individual differences and effects of interventional studies. Experience in programming psychophysical experiments, in either MATLAB or Python, is preferred. Researchers must possess a doctoral degree in Psychology, Education, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, or a related field. The ideal starting time for the position would be during the Fall of 2022. However, we will also consider possible start times through the first few months of 2023. Thus, individuals planning to complete their dissertation during Fall 2022 are encouraged to apply. Review of materials will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.||The post-doctoral researcher is expected to take a lead role in the funded cognitive training project, including setting up experiments, collecting and analyzing data, training and supervision of graduate students and undergraduate research assistants, and dissemination of results at conferences and in research publications. The primary appointment will be at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Learning and Transfer Lab of C. Shawn Green (https://greenlab.psych.wisc.edu/). The lab's broad focus is to examine factors that alter the rate and generality of learning in both the perceptual and cognitive domains. The University of Wisconsin offers excellent benefits. Salary is based on research experience. The initial appointment is for 1 year with a possibility of extension. Furthermore, although the postdoc's primary location will be at UW-Madison, the postdoc will also spend time on the UCR and UCI campuses and work closely with both Seitz and Jaeggi to insure that procedures are coordinated between all three sites and that all personnel are properly trained and supervised. At UCR (Seitz), the project will fall under the purview of the Brain Game Center, whose mission is to research, test, and disseminate evidence-based, scientifically optimized brain fitness games that transfer benefits to real-life activities. The Center has recently moved into a 3000 square foot facility that provides an ideal environment for the proposed work with a staff of full time research coordinators, full time programmers and a team of postdocs, graduate students, and an army of research assistants that facilitates the development, testing and dissemination of brain training games and cognitive assessment tools. The Brain Game Center is the only university-based research center focused on research of brain training games, and it has a track record of making tested procedures publically available so that people can try them out for themselves. At UCI (Jaeggi), the project will fall under the purview of the Working Memory and Plasticity Lab (http://wmp.education.uci.edu) whose mission lies in the development of working memory interventions for populations across the lifespan, with the aim to understand the underlying cognitive and neural mechanisms that drive training-related changes using behavioral and neuroimaging methods, as well as transcranial electrical stimulation.
