Leading NIH-funded laboratory in ovarian biology, aging, and fertility preservation is looking for a postdoctoral candidate with strong background in ovarian and molecular biology. Firm knowledge in ovarian biology, and experience with single-cell qRT-PCR and RNA sequencing, epigenomics, bisulfite sequencing, microinjection and CRISPR techniques will be preferred. Interpersonal skills will be highly important as this is a multidisciplinary translational project. The Postdoctoral Associate will train and work on the role of DNA repair in oocyte aging as well as the relationship of BRCA and related mutations to reproductive and overall aging.

To understand the background of the Oktay laboratory’s theme, please refer to our recent publications:
