We are currently looking for highly motivated and talented students, medical as well as post-doctoral fellows and research associates.


Post-Doctoral Position

‘Molecular Mechanisms of Human Placental Development and Disease’
Medical School, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, USA

A post-doctoral position (3 years) is available in the newly established laboratory of Prof Sascha Drewlo, located in the Mott Center for Human Growth and Development on WSU campus.

The ultimate goal of our research is to provide clinician scientists new tools to identify and treat pregnant women and babies at risk. The research focuses of this lab are molecular models of human placental development and placental insufficiency. We investigate novel intervention strategies using different tissue and cell based models and molecular approaches including but not limited to RNAseq, qPCR, ChipSeq, MassSpec, standard protein as well as immuno-histochemical techniques to decipher pathways involved in placental development and disease.

The ideal candidate has a strong published background in human reproduction and/or related fields including but not limited to cell culture, qPCR, MassSpec and protein analysis. Proven English proficiency is essential. We are looking for a person who presents and communicates well and is able to work in different team settings. 

We offer an excellent training environment here at the Mott Research Center and actively support the development of our trainees. Our local and international affiliations to the clinical departments and the NIH research branch located on campus offer us cutting edge technology as well as specimen needed for these critical studies.
