Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Jeremy Wang, Ralph L Brinster President’s Distinguished Professor, at the University of Pennsylvania to study meiosis and spermatogonial stem cells. Our group focuses on the study of germline development and meiosis in mice. Spermatogonial stem cells are vital to life-long production of sperm (Lin et al., Genes Dev, 2022). Meiosis, a cell division unique to germ cells, allows the reciprocal exchange of genetic material between paternal and maternal genomes (Guan et al., Science Advances 2020; Nucleic Acids Res., 2022).

Candidates with a recent/expected Ph.D. should have a strong background and technical skills in protein biochemistry, cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM), molecular biology, mammalian cell culture, reproduction, or lentiviral technology. Candidates with less than one year of postdoctoral experience are preferred. Highly motivated and diligent individuals with at least one first-authored high-quality publication are encouraged to send a cover letter, CV, and names and contact information for three referees to: Jeremy Wang, Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA.
