Essential Functions (Job Duties)
One postdoctoral fellowship is available in the field of Perinatal Genomics. The position is available immediately. Postdoctoral Fellows are expected to work with the Single Cell Genomics Unit of the Perinatology Research Branch (PRB) of NICHD/NIH and Wayne State University (WSU).
The PRB has unique clinical and translational programs focused on the mechanisms of disease responsible for pregnancy complications. The PRB is located at Hutzel Women's Hospital, which serves Southeastern Michigan and is the primary obstetrical care center for the Detroit Medical Center, which is affiliated with WSU. The Perinatology Single Cell Unit is based at the Medical Center, as well as the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will: 1) develop single cell genomic approaches to study gene regulation of human reproductive tissues at single cell resolution; 2) develop quantitative methods to characterize the transcriptional and epigenetic profiles of the human placenta and other reproductive tissues at single cell resolution; 3) integrate the single cell data obtained from healthy and complicated pregnancies from major obstetrical syndromes with other genetic datasets and molecular biomarkers that can be obtained early in gestation; and 4) characterize genetic and environmental causes leading to variation in the molecular profiles associated with higher risk of pregnancy complications.
Candidates must possess a MD/PhD or PhD with a strong research component in computational genomics including good programming skills (R or Python), strong background in quantitative/statistical methods, and a very strong interest in the biology of human reproduction.
