Postdoctoral Position – Sperm Development – Maria Mikedis Lab

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

Cincinnati, OH

Posted 2/24/2023

Dr. Maria Mikedis’ laboratory is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow (recent PhD) or research associate (PhD with 3+ years of postdoc experience) who will investigate how spermatogonial stem cells/progenitors differentiate to form sperm. Specific topics include how translational control regulates spermatogonial stem cells’ differentiation into mitotically dividing progenitors (Mikedis, et al.,2020 eLife), and how post-transcriptional regulation of mRNA induces progenitors to transition from mitosis to meiosis (Soh, Mikedis, et al., 2017 PLoS Genetics). The Mikedis laboratory uses a multidisciplinary approach, including cutting edge tools in scRNA-seq, molecular biology, functional genomics, biochemistry, and mouse genetics.

The ideal candidate:
Candidates must hold a PhD in molecular biology, cell biology, or a related field. Expertise in at least two of the following six areas is required: reproductive biology, biochemistry, functional genomics, bioinformatics, mouse models, and cell culture techniques. A demonstrated track record of productivity via publications in peer-reviewed journals is a strong plus.

Please submit a coverletter describing your research interest, CV, and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Mikedis at [email protected].
