Postdoctoral Position Available

Eli Y. Adashi


The Laboratory of Reproductive Sciences of the Department of Obstetrics
and Gynecology at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center is
pleased to offer a position to qualified postdoctoral trainees with
C.elegans experience who may wish to secure exposure to mammalian
reproductive physiology while interfacing with the local C.elegans
community. Funding for one position is available effective immediately.
The purpose of this initiative, among other objectives, is to accelerate
the pace of discovery (through the use of the C.elegans paradigm) of
novel genes applicable to the mammalian reproductive axis. The
laboratory in question for which the principal investigator is Dr. Eli
Y. Adashi is focusing on the molecular endocrinology of the mammalian
ovary, novel gene discovery and tissue-specific gene ablation
technology. The Adashi Laboratory is currently comprised of postdocs
(7), technical personnel, and administrative personnel for a total of 15
members. The C.elegans community at the University of Utah is a strong
and vibrant one complimenting broad strength in developmental biology
and in human genetics. Strong parallel programs in mouse and Zebrafish
genetics are likewise available. 

Please feel free to send any and all inquires to Eli Y. Adashi, M.D.,
Presidential Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, John A. Dixon
Professor and Chair, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University
of Utah Health Sciences Center at eadashi@hsc.utah.edu.
