JOB SUMMARY

The laboratory of Jianjun Sun at the University of Connecticut Department of Physiology and Neurobiology is inviting applications for a postdoctoral position funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and National Institutes of Health.

Our group studies female reproductive organ formation and function. We recently developed a Drosophila model to investigate the conserved mechanism of ovulation and developed high-throughput platforms for screening small compounds that can inhibit follicle rupture and be further developed into non-steroidal contraceptive medicines (Deady and Sun, PLoS Genet, 2015; Deady et al., eLife, 2017; Knapp and Sun, PNAS, 2017; Li et al., PNAS, 2018; Knapp et al., Development, 2019; Shen and Sun, Development, 2020).

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

The Postdoctoral Research Associate will participate in identifying the signaling network that control ovulation and fertilization, small compound library screens, and/or investigating molecular mechanisms of leading contraceptive compounds in inhibiting ovulation.

The candidate is also responsible in supervision and training of less experienced lab members.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

  • PhD or MD/PhD degree
  • Strong background in genetics, cell biology, or developmental biology
  • Ability to work independently and take a leading role on their project, under supervision and guidance of the PI

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

  • Previous experience in Drosophila genetics and/or reproductive biology is highly desirable 

APPOINTMENT TERMS

This is a full-time, 12 month position. Salary will be commensurate with appropriate experience according to NIH scale.
