A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Ramakrishna Kommagani, in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Center for Reproductive Health Sciences at Washington University School of Medicine.
Dr. Kommagani’s research is primarily focused on understanding the cellular, biochemical, and molecular mechanisms that underlie reproductive tract function and dysfunction. We recently identified a novel factor associated with endometrial function and dysfunction through functional genomic approach. Successful applicants will utilize established cell culture and mouse models in conjunction with functional genomics to underscore the role of this factor in endometrial physiology as well in pathologies, including endometriosis. Candidate will also participate in translational efforts through our clinical collaborators within WUSM.
The appointee has earned a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent terminal or doctoral degree.
- Candidates that are 1-2 years past their doctoral degree are strongly preferred.
- Candidates with a strong background in cell and molecular biology, tissue culture and experienced with handling and using rodent models are strongly preferred.
- Candidates with a clear interest in molecular mechanisms of transcriptional regulation are highly encouraged to apply.
Base salary is commensurate with experience.
