Postdoc Fellow
UC Irvine
Functional proteomics of uterine artery function in pregnancy and preeclampsia.

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of California, Irvine invites applications for full-time positions in the Postdoctoral Scholar Series to investigate an emerging role of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in the regulation of uterine and placental hemodynamics. The lab currently focuses on advancing the understanding of a physiological role of augmented H2S signaling in uterine and placental angiogenesis and vasodilation in pregnancy, whether impaired H2S signaling contributes to preeclampsia, and whether protein Sulfhydration and Nitrosylation serve as the primary signaling routes for H2S interacting with nitric oxide to elicit their proangiogenic vasodilatory effects in the uterine and placental circulations.
The ideal candidates should be self-motivated and within two years after obtaining a doctorate degree in biomedical sciences. Candidates with a strong understanding of female reproductive biology and endocrinology are strongly encouraged to apply. Previous experience with perinatal biology is preferred but not required. The successful candidate will have opportunities to work with human uterine artery and placenta and novel primary vascular cell models from these tissues and to learn a variety of perinatal vascular biology research skills such as functional proteomics to analyze protein sulfhydration in potassium channels and angiogenic signaling pathways regulating uterine and placental vascular sequelae in normal pregnancy and preeclampsia. Specific research projects will depend on the successful fellow’s interest, background, and training goals for career development.

Applications will be considered until the position is filled.

Postdoctoral Position in Reproductive Immunology
Yale University
The laboratory of  Dr Vikki Abrahams, PhD in the Department Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences at Yale School of Medicine is looking to recruit a motivated Postdoctoral scientist.

The lab focuses on the role of innate immune Toll-like receptors and Nod-like receptors in placental, fetal membrane, and maternal-fetal immune responses to infectious and non-infectious stimuli, and their role in regulating pregnancy outcome, including those complicated by infections and by autoimmune diseases. The lab uses basic and translational approaches; primarily in human models systems and samples, but also mouse models. The current position involves studying the mechanisms by which antiphospholipid antibodies, that are associated with lupus, induce trophoblast inflammation and impact their communication with the maternal vasculature. This position is for 2 years with the possibility of extension and is anticipated to start the fall of 2024.  Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant field such as Immunology; Reproductive Sciences; or Cellular and/or Molecular Biology. Prior Reproductive Immunology and/or Reproductive Biology experience is preferred but not essential. Applicants should have skills that include, but are not limited to cell culture, Western blot analysis, ELISA, and RT-qPCR. 
Candidates should be enthusiastic, highly organized, self-motivated, hard-working and reliable, with excellent interpersonal and written and oral communication skills. Applicants must have good attention to detail and problem-solving skills, be able to multi-task, and be able to perform both independently as well as in a team environment. Successful applicants will have a strong track record of research productivity, presentations, and publications.

Applicants should email: 1) a Curriculum Vitae; 2) contact information for three references; and 3) a description of their research background and interests and career goals to Dr Vikki M Abrahams, PhD (vikki.abrahams@yale.edu).
