The Lengyel Laboratory (https://obgyn.uchicago.edu/research/lengyel-ovarian-cancer-laboratory) is seeking a highly motivated postdoc to join our laboratory’s efforts to understand human ovarian cancer biology. Our laboratory studies the role of the microenvironment in ovarian cancer development and progression; using knowledge gained to develop novel treatments for metastatic ovarian cancer. The postdoc will have the opportunity to work in a multi-disciplinary environment in close collaboration with physicians, device fabrication engineers, statisticians, and molecular and systems biologists at the University of Chicago.
The postdoc will map all cell types in the female reproductive system with a focus on site-specific cell-cell interactions, their response to environmental cues, and their role in ovarian cancer pathogenesis and progression. We aim to evaluate the function of different cell types using state-of-the-art, high-throughput single cell epigenomic and transcriptomic techniques. This position is a joint position with the Basu laboratory (https://wordpress.uchospitals.edu/basu-lab/).
