Reproductive Physiology Club under Yale Pathways to Science (5/12/2018)

We hosted our 2nd annual Reproductive Physiology Club, an outreach program under Yale Pathways to Science. It was full of hands-on activity with local high school students together with Shannon Whirledge at Ob/Gyn again. Kids had fun looking at reproductive tracts, live sperm and eggs under microscope. Taking a look at human placenta was a big hit! Thank you for your participation, Nancy, Jae, and Jong-Nam!

Postdoctoral position available in Chung lab

The laboratory of Jean-Ju L. Chung, PhD, in the Department of Cellular & Molecular Physiology at Yale School of Medicine is seeking postdoctoral candidates in reproductive immunology research in the areas of sperm physiology and fertilization studies. 

Research Interest.The major focus of the lab is to understand cellular signaling via membrane receptors and ion channels in sperm physiology and fertilization under normal and pathophysiological conditions. For this position, there is a particular focus on reproductive immunity and evaluating new contraceptives that we develop in collaboration with a protein engineering laboratory.  

Minimum Qualification. Self-driven and highly motivated PhD (or PhD candidate) with an inquisitive nature and a quantitative mind, a working understanding of basic techniques in immunology and biochemistry, and a record of productive research with at least one peer-reviewed 1st author publication during PhD. 

Preferred Qualification. Ideal candidates would have a strong background on immunology, virology, or reproductive biology or a strong interest in discovering antibody candidates for developing novel contraceptives and experience in mice handling, breeding, genotyping, immune response analysis. 

To apply, please send me (1) Cover letter that describes what you did, and your motivation to apply, (2) CV, and (3) 2-3 names of references to Jean-Ju Chung at jean-ju.chung (at) yale.edu
