Future Lab Members

We are always looking for smart, productive, and fun colleagues to join us in our studies of Human Cytomegalovirus replication and pathogenesis.  Experience with HCMV or virology is not required (we can teach you that), but a strong work ethic, collegial attitude, and inquisitive mind are essential.  Information about our lab can be found on this web site.  Projects are available in each of the main research areas of the lab, but new directions that expand the scope of the laboratory and fit with your interests and abilities are always welcome.  UW-Madison has the facilities and expertise to support high-level productivity, and is located in one of the most beautiful and livable small cities in the US.  If interested, please forward a cover letter briefly describing your past research and future goals, along with a CV containing the names and email addresses of three references to:  UW-Madison is an equal opportunity employer.
