Postdoc summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow in Stem Biology (Otolaryngology Dept)
We are looking for a motivated and creative post-doctoral fellow to join the 3D Stem Cell Biology Research Lab (https://www.hashinolab.com) and study normal and pathological development of the human inner ear using stem cell-derived organoids as a model system (Koehler et al., Nature 2013; Liu et al., Nature Communications 2016; Koehler et al., Nature Biotechnology 2017; Nie et al., Nature Communications 2022). We recently developed a human cochlear organoid system that recapitulates aspects of outer and inner hair cell development. Using this novel model system, we aim at elucidating the mechanisms underlying hair cell differentiation and identifying means to promote hair cell regeneration in the human cochlea. We are also developing a human cochlear–hindbrain assembloid system to study auditory neural circuity development. Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in biomedical sciences. Funding is available for supporting this position for up to 5 years. The start date is flexible.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Appointee in Viral Pathogenesis
The primary responsibilities of this role are to assist the principal investigator in conducting a wide range of complex experiments with a degree of independence in conducting research in: 1) identifying bacteria and specific bacterial enhancers of Coxsackievirus replication and pathogenesis; 2) accessing the role of Coxsackievirus sex bias in viral pathogenesis.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Sawyer Seminar Postdoctoral Fellow
The Sawyer Seminar explores and emphasizes the importance of studying the global interconnectedness of histories of slavery in the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific worlds, foregrounding how their evolutions shaped processes of racialization and the advancement of capitalism. It also draws attention to the various forms of fugitivity that challenged systems of slavery by acts of withdrawal and contestation. Temporally, the Seminar is grounded in relation to three key moments and processes. Firstly, Europe’s colonization of the Americas during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and the influence this had on the development of the Atlantic and Transpacific slave trades and the emergence of capitalism. Secondly, the different histories of abolitionism ranging from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century and the forms of coerced labor practices that emerged subsequently. Finally, contemporary memorializations of slavery, unfreedom, and fugitivity, particularly in the aftermath of the Black Lives Matter movement and in light of various forms of indigenous activism in the Americas and around the world.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow Position for National Science Foundation Research Project on Teachers’ Equity Beliefs and Practice
The project is entitled “Attributions of Mathematical Excellence in Teaching and Learning” (AMETL). The central hypothesis is that teachers’ beliefs attributing mathematical excellence to innate ability, cultural and social background, or personal characteristics widen the opportunity gap by resonating implicit bias and stereotype threat, and moreover, that beliefs attributing mathematical excellence to instructional opportunities narrow the gap because these beliefs amplify teacher expectations. The project comprises three studies focused on (1) item development to construct the AMETL scale; (2) validating the internal structure of the scale and determining relations with other variables; and (3) understanding relations between teachers’ scores on the AMETL scale with their classroom instruction. The overall research project is a collaboration between multiple partners at Indiana University, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Georgia State University. A short description of this NSF project can be found at: https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=2200990&HistoricalAwards=false

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Position in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Dr. Kim studies the molecular mechanisms underlying the development and progression of ovarian and breast cancer with genetically engineered mouse models and human specimens. The current research focus is to elucidate a conundrum surrounding high cancer risks and distinct cancer susceptibility among BRCA1 carriers. Despite the fact that every cell in their body has a harmful BRCA1 mutation, these women are predisposed particularly to ovarian and breast cancers. It remains a mystery. A seminal study (PNAS 2020; PMID: 33262282) from his lab points to the ovarian hormone progesterone as the culprit for BRCA1 carriers’ distinctive susceptibility to ovarian and breast cancer. Integrating this novel insight and unique Brca1 mouse models, his lab is seeking to decipher the molecular mechanisms underlying the progesterone regulation of ovarian and breast cancer development in BRCA1 carriers—with an emphasis on DNA damage/repair, cell-cycle checkpoint regulation, and immune modulation. This innovative, high-impact research will not only reveal a basic molecular mechanism of cancer susceptibility with BRCA1 mutations, but this knowledge will also offer an innovative strategy for the effective nonsurgical prevention and control of these formidable cancers wreaking havoc on women.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow in Medicine – Hematology/Oncology
The postdoctoral fellows will be working independently with the goal to rapidly develop their own career goals. The primary research focus will be defined together with Dr. Y. Alan Wang in consultation of postdoctoral fellows’ prior research experience and motivation in area of interest. Both cell culture work and animal studies will be conducted using many different types of models, including 2D, 3D culture systems, organoids, PDX, GEMM and rapid ES-derived GEMM, among others. In addition, it is expected that the postdoctoral fellows will gain expert level skills for various techniques required to address scientific questions, including spatial transcriptomics, CyTOF, imaging-CyTOF, scSeq, other omics and downstream bioinformatic analysis in consultation with in house computational scientists. As the goal of our research projects are translational, we expect that postdoctoral fellows will actively participate in collaborations with outstanding clinicians to potentially move the bench discoveries to the clinics as exemplified by several ongoing clinical trials in prostate cancer and colon cancer. Finally, the postdoctoral fellows are expected to seek fellowships and also support PI’s grant application as well as writing reviews and manuscripts through which the postdoctoral fellows will gain a deep understanding on the art of scientific writing and presentation.
