Postdoctoral Research Fellow Position – Mechanisms Controling Epigenetic Programming During Reproduction, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center

Posted 3/28/2018

Dr. Satoshi Namekawa’s laboratory in the Division of Endocrinology has an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow. The Namekawa laboratory is focused on elucidating the mechanisms and evolution of epigenetic programming events during germ cell development and early embryogenesis. The current goal of the project is to identify novel factors and related pathways that control epigenetic programming during mouse reproduction.

The ideal candidate will be a recent PhD graduate, energetic, highly motivated and creative individual, eager to explore challenging research. The new fellow is expected to independently design and conduct projects under the supervision of Dr. Namekawa. Candidates with a strong background in any of the following areas are encouraged to apply: reproduction, meiosis, spermatogenesis, DNA damage response and epigenetics including Polycomb, histone post-translational modifications and DNA methylation. Candidates with expertise in the analysis of next-gen sequencing (or strong interest in learning these skills) are preferred. Experience with basic molecular biology skills (DNA work including molecular cloning and vector construction) is required.

Please submit a cover letter, a statement of research interests, and a CV with contact details for 3 referees to Dr. Namekawa at
