Job Summary

The Hammoud Laboratory at the University of Michigan is seeking two highly motivated individuals interested in the fundamental principles of germ cell development or transgenerational epigenetic inheritance. Our two primary research interest includes: 1) Unraveling the molecular program of spermatogenesis –using single cell approaches. 2) Defining molecular carriers of epigenetic memory. Although these early studies aim to provide a fundamental understanding of germ cell biology and paternal contribution, the findings will have direct clinical and therapeutic relevance for infertility and fertility preservation.

The Hammoud lab is part of a highly collaborative environment we have extensive collaborations within the University of Michigan and abroad. We also have access to numerous state of the art core facilities, specialized equipment, and opportunities for career development.

This is a 100%-time research position with an initial appointment for one year with possible extension depending on performance.

Required Qualifications*

PhD in life sciences or bioinformatics with a strong background in cell and molecular biology, genetics, epigenetics, transcriptional regulation, high-resolution microscopy, or bioinformatics

Desired Qualifications*

Experience with mouse models is essential. Additional qualities should include the ability to work in a team, a passion for scientific endeavor, and excellence in communication skills.
