Postdoctoral Training Opportunities - Uterine Diseases

Two postdoctoral positions are available in Dr. Julie Kim’s lab at Northwestern University in Chicago, IL. The candidates will join a dynamic research team to study either molecular mechanisms of endometrial tumorigenesis or pathophysiology of uterine fibroids. The Kim lab uses state-of-the-art technologies to mimic reproductive tract biology and disease in vitro combined with cutting-edge genomics to understand the genetic and epigenetic contributions of disease development and progression. 

Qualified candidates should be highly motivated and independent with strong interests in uterine biology, molecular biology, genomics, epigenetics, or cancer biology.  An established track record of success, including first author publications, a Ph.D. degree in related field(s) is a must.   Excellent written and presentation skills and experience with cell culture, molecular biology, and bioinformatics are preferred.

For prompt consideration, please email the following items to Dr. Julie Kim (

  •  A one-­page cover letter describing areas of research interests and career goals
  • Curriculum vitae with bibliography
  • Contact information for 3 references
