A postdoctoral research scientist position is available at Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, in the Ronald O. Perelman and Claudia Cohen Center for Reproductive Medicine. The Postdoctoral Fellow will employ human induced pluripotent stem cells and genetically engineered mouse models to deconstruct the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying ovarian function. Specifically, the project aims are to: 1) develop in vitro methods for growth and maturation of ovarian follicles that foster oocyte generation; and 2) interrogate the functional relevance of ovarian somatic cells to reproductive function and infertility. (see http://reproendolab.weill.cornell.edu/ for further details). The ideal candidate will have experience with molecular biology, culture/differentiation of pluripotent cells, fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry/sorting, mouse developmental and/or surgical models. MD and/or PhD degree required. Please send CV and names of three references to Dr. Daylon James, djj2001@med.cornell.edu
