We are seeking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow who holds aPh.D. in biophysics, physiology, or biochemistry.
Our research laboratory aims to understand the relationship betweenstructure and function of ion channels (e.g., transient receptor potential andmechanosensitive channels) involved in somatosensation and in the vascularsystem using a multi-disciplinary approach that includes molecular biology,biochemistry, structural biology, and electrophysiology. The fellow willinvestigate the molecular basis by which different stimuli promote channelactivation using functional (patch clamp) and structural approaches(cryo-electron microscopy).
The position will offer many opportunities to learn and apply avariety of functional and structural techniques to study ion channels, such asmolecular biology, patch clamp, two-electrode voltage clamp, calcium imaging,and cryo-EM.
