A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Lei Lei, in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, University of Michigan Medical School.
The research in the Lei lab focuses on cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying mammalian oogenesis. We are particularly interested in how the primordial follicle pool (i.e. ovarian reserve) forms during fetal ovarian development and is maintained in adult ovaries. The research in the Lei lab utilize broad cellular and molecular experimental approaches, including genetic mouse models, in vitro organ culture, live-imaging, single-cell lineage tracing, RNA-sequencing and proteomics.
The Lei Lab is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to investigate the mechanism of intercellular bridge formation during fetal germ cell development, and the role of intercellular bridges in oocyte differentiation. The goal of this project is to identify novel fetal origins of adult ovarian diseases. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in biological science. Candidates should send a cover letter describing current research interests, a CV and the names and contact information of three references to Dr. Lei Lei (firstname.lastname@example.org)
