Postdoctoral,Center for Reproductive Health

The focus of the Center for Reproductive Health (CRH) is on the prevention of obesity and related metabolic disorders in women of reproductive age in order to improve the short and long-term health of the woman and her offspring. The CRH is an exceedingly collaborative research environment, bringing together basic scientists and clinicians in a “team science” approach to research.

One postdoctoral position is open in a translational laboratory that studies the effect of maternal metabolism on placental nutrient handling and fetal growth. This NIH-funded position requires a candidate with excellent oral and written communication skills and a strong work ethic. The candidate’s primary focus will be a project related to the role of placental microRNA in maternal metabolic changes during pregnancy and fetal growth. The candidate will also contribute to other lab and CRH projects as necessary.

The successful candidate must have technical expertise in molecular biology and cell culture. A background in reproductive biology is desirable. A PhD or MD/PhD in the life sciences is required.
