Leading NIH-funded laboratory in ovarian biology, aging, and fertility preservation is looking for a postdoctoral candidate with strong background in ovarian biology, qRT-PCR, microarray analysis, RNA sequencing, single cell techniques and in vitro growth techniques. The candidate will work on the role of DNA repair in genotoxic damage to oocyte and as caused by aging, and the relationship of BRCA mutations to ovarian function. Please refer to our recent publication in Science Translational Medicine to understand the background behind the proposed work (Impairment of BRCA1-related DNA double-strand break repair leads to ovarian aging in mice and humans. Titus S, Li F, Stobezki R, Akula K, Unsal E, Jeong K, Dickler M, Robson M, Moy F, Goswami S, Oktay K. Sci Transl Med. 2013 Feb 13;5(172):172ra21. doi:10.1126/scitranslmed.3004925.). This multidisciplinary translational project demands good collaborative skills. This is a highly rewarding postdoctoral position for a highly motivated and well trained PhD. We will give priority to candidates with strong molecular biology experience and training.
Please forward letter of interest and CV to Kutluk.Oktay@yale.edu.
