新泽西州立罗格斯大学（Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey），通称罗格斯大学，简称罗格斯（RU或Rutgers），是一所在世界顶级的公立研究型大学，也是新泽西州规模最大的高等学府。罗格斯大学是美国最早成立的第八个高等教育机构，也是美国独立革命前的九所私立殖民地学院之一。
There are positions available in Dr. Shuo Xiao’s lab at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Ernest School of Pharmacy/Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute (EOHSI), Rutgers University.
The positions are funded by grants from the National Institute of Environmental Health (NIEHS) and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Dr. Xiao’s research focuses on how environmental chemicals and clinical drugs affect female ovarian functions and fertility. Another major research interest is to use the 3D ovarian tissue or follicle culture model and microfluidic and organ-on-a-chip technologies for ovulation-based new contraceptive discovery. More information about Dr. Xiao’s research can be found at:
The candidates will focus on 1-2 of the following projects:
(1) molecular mechanisms of female ovarian toxicities caused by harmful algal bloom toxins and other emerging climate change- related environmental contaminants;
(2) novel ovulation-based contraceptive discovery;
(3) molecular mechanisms of chemotherapy-induced premature ovarian failure and infertility.
Qualified candidates are required to have a PhD or a visiting scholar or an equivalent doctoral degree, experiences in molecular biology, animal science, or reproductive and developmental biology or toxicology.
Candidates should also be able to work independently, have critical thinking, perform team science, and have excellent oral and written communication skills.
Rutgers University is one of the largest research universities and has outstanding resources and facilities to support state-of-the-art research.
Both Dr. Xiao’s home department and EOHSI are nationally and internationally recognized for their basic and clinical research on pharmacology, toxicology, and exposure science.
Introduction to experimental group:
Dr. Xiao’s team has access to outstanding facilities of Genomics, Genetics, Proteomics, Confocal and high-content Imaging, Histopathology, Analytical Chemistry, Flow Cytometry, etc. Rutgers University provides excellent career development and training environment for postdoc fellows.
Interested candidates should send their Cover Letter, Resume/CV, and names and contacts of 3 references to Dr. Shuo Xiao at firstname.lastname@example.org or apply online
