Looking to recruit a Postdoctoral Associate in Dr. Sang Jun Han' lab . The primary focus of Sang Jun Han's laboratory is on elucidating the mechanisms underlying the progression of endometriosis through the growth factor/estrogen/immune axis, utilizing various genetically modified animal models and human endometrial organoids derived from patients with endometriosis. Subsequently, our goal is to develop innovative immmuno therapies aimed at eradicating endometriotic lesions and effectively alleviating endometriosis-related symptoms, such as infertility and pain. The Post-Doc researcher will conduct animal experiments using tissue-specific gene-deleted mouse models and analyze the data using single-cell RNA sequencing and Cytometry by Time of Flight (CyTOF) to uncover novel insights into how growth factor and estrogen signaling disrupt the immune system, exacerbating endometriosis. This project has the potential to provide groundbreaking insights, bridging scientific gaps in our understanding of the molecular etiology of endometriosis and paving the way for new immune-based therapies that can effectively treat endometriosis patients without the adverse effects associated with current hormonal treatments.

Job Duties

  • Plans, directs and conducts research experiments related to reproductive diseases.
  • Collects, analyzes, and documents experiment results.
  • Performs different cell and molecular biology studies using mice and primary cells.
  • Documents results of experiments and reports to the principal investigator.
  • Conducts literature searches and summarizes information for ongoing projects.
  • Works with other groups in the Molecular Cellular Biology Department and TMC at large on collaborative projects.
  • Conducts all experiments necessary to achieve the objectives of this project. Consequently, without a postdoctoral associate to oversee and prepare the experiments, progress on the project would be hindered. The outcomes of the research and the discoveries made will likely lead to additional funding opportunities.

Minimum Qualifications

  • MD or Ph.D. in Basic Science, Health Science, or a related field.
  • No experience required.

Preferred Qualifications

  • A postdoctoral associate with a research background in immunology, molecular biology, and animal experience is required for this position.
