A Postdoctoral Fellow is available in the laboratory of Dr. Larina in the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics at the Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX to investigate the role of cilia in the fallopian tube through live imaging in mouse models. We are a dynamic highly collaborative team of optical engineers and biologists, investigating biomechanical aspects of biological processes in mouse models of human disorders. Our studies bring together optical system design, OCT, confocal/multiphoton microscopy, optogenetics, technology development in functional optical imaging and data processing (4D angiography, cilia beat mapping, cardiodynamic analysis, elastography), vital fluorescent reporters, genetic mouse models of human disorders, developmental and reproductive biology questions. Positioned in the heart of the Texas
Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world, the lab takes advantage of unprecedented resources and cross-disciplinary collaborations. We are strongly dedicated to career development and advancement for all lab members. The candidates will be part of a vibrant reproductive biology program based in the Center for Reproductive Medicine, which is one of 36 Centers of Excellence at Baylor College of Medicine. Baylor College of Medicine is situated within the world’s largest medical center. Resources are state-of-the-art and include 26 Advanced Technology Cores for performing cutting edge science.
