【団体名】:Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center Reproductive Science Center

【募集職種】:Postdoctoral Fellow

 シンシナティ小児病院 生殖科学部門の Sudhansu K Dey labではポスドクを募集しています。Dey教授は雌性生殖系研究、特に子宮機能に着目した着床研究の世界的権威であり、主に子宮特異的KOマウスを用いて解析を行なっています。Dey教授はこれまで40年以上のキャリアの中で400本以上の論文を出版しており、Referenceにもある通り、ごく近年においてもHigh impact journalで精力的に論文を発表し続けています。

シンシナティ小児病院では顕微鏡コア、Flow Cytometoryコアなどの共同利用実験施設が充実しており、専門スタッフの指導のもと最新機器を利用し研究遂行可能です。
また、当研究施設はオハイオ州シンシナティに所在し、大都市部と比べ物価が安く暮らしやすい場所です。日本人PI・日本人ポスドクが同研究施設や隣接したUniversity of Cincinnatiに多数在籍し、日本人研究者のコミュニティも存在します。また、近隣市に日本語補修校も設置されているため、家族連れでも駐在しやすい環境です。
応募者の方は、過去の研究略歴や将来の研究の展望を添えた履歴書(Curriculum vitae)を添えて、Prof. Dey (SK.Dey@cchmc.org)もしくはDr. Xioafei Sun (xiaofei.sun@cchmc.org)まで直接ご連絡ください。

Dr. SK Dey group (Lova Riekert Chair and Professor of Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation) is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow.Dr. Dey has been studying in the field of female reproduction for more than 40 years. He was awarded the Carl G. Hartman award (2008), the most prestigious award in reproduction field, and the IVI Foundation Award for the Best Clinical Research Record in Reproductive Medicine (2009). Pregnancy is a complex process, comprising ovulation, fertilization, preimplantation embryo development, oviductal embryo transport, embryo implantation, uterine decidualization, placentation and parturition. They are all critical, and failure at any of these events compromises pregnancy outcome. Implantation is the first direct encounter between the embryo and mother, while parturition is the end of this encounter, although soluble factors from the uterus and/or embryo influence the embryo-uterine dialogue prior to implantation. Therefore, implantation and parturition conceptually, physiologically and clinically are two distinct conundrums with different molecular and genetic signatures. While implantation failure is a significant cause of infertility and a clinical issue in IVF programs, preterm birth and prematurity, on the other hand, are problems that continue beyond birth, posing a huge long-term social and economic liability. Dr. Dey has published more than 400 articles in respected journals, including Cell, Nature, Science, Nature Medicine, JCI, Genes&Development, Nature review Genetics, PNAS, Nat Communication and Development. Currently, Dr. Dey is serving JCI and Science Translational medicine as a consulting expert.
