A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Shiying Jin, at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, Novato CA.
The Jin lab research focuses on ovarian biology and uterine stem cells. We are interested in how the quiescent primordial follicles are activated, and how stem cells maintain uterine homeostasis and regeneration (reference: Jin SY, Bipotent stem cells support the cyclical regeneration of endometrial epithelium of the murine uterus. PNAS, 2019). Experimental approaches, including genetic mouse models, in vitro organ culture, tissue transplantation, live-imaging, single-cell lineage tracing, RNA-sequencing and proteomics are used in our research.
A highly motivated postdoctoral researcher is welcome to join the Jin lab to investigate these questions. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in biological science.
Our success will ultimately change healthcare. At the Buck, we aim to end the threat of age-related diseases for this and future generations by bringing together the most capable and passionate scientists from a broad range of disciplines to identify and impede the ways in which we age. We are an independent, nonprofit institution located in Marin County, CA, with the goal of increasing human healthspan, or the healthy years of life. Globally recognized as the pioneer and leader in efforts to target aging—the number one risk factor for diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cancer, macular degeneration, heart disease, and diabetes—the Buck seeks to help people live better longer.
The Buck Institute has an excellent postdoctoral research program. We offer competitive salaries, excellent benefits, a dynamic work environment, and new state-of-the-art facilities.
