    The laboratory of Dr Vikki M Abrahams, PhD in the Department Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences at Yale School of Medicine is looking to recruit two motivated Postdoctoral Scientists.

    The Abrahams Lab focuses on understanding the role of innate immune Toll-like receptor, Nod-like receptor and inflammasome family members in placental, fetal membrane, and maternal-fetal immune responses to infectious and non-infectious stimuli, and their role in regulating pregnancy outcome, including those complicated by infections and by autoimmune diseases. The lab uses basic and translational approaches; primarily in human models systems and samples, but also using mouse models. The current positions will involve studying the mechanisms by which infectious and non-infectious triggers induce placental trophoblast and fetal membrane inflammation and their communication with the maternal vasculature and immune system. These positions are for 2 years initially and is anticipated to start summer-fall 2021. 

    Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant field such as Immunology; Reproductive Sciences; or Cellular and/or Molecular Biology. Prior Reproductive Immunology and/or Reproductive Biology experience is preferred but not essential. Applicants should have skills that include, but are not limited to cell culture, Western blot analysis, ELISA, and qRT-PCR. 

    Candidates should be enthusiastic, highly organized, self-motivated, hard-working and reliable, with excellent interpersonal and written and oral communication skills. Applicants should have good attention to detail and problem-solving skills, be able to multi-task, and be able to perform both independently as well as in a team environment.
