Postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Vivek Garg in the Department of Physiology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore ( https://www.medschool.umaryland.edu/physiology/ ). Research in the laboratory focuses on the molecular physiology of mitochondrial proteins specifically ion channels and transporters, their role in human disease, and how different organisms adapt to defects in mitochondrial functions. We use high resolution electrophysiological, imaging and biochemical approaches to elucidate signaling pathways that are fundamental to mitochondrial bioenergetics. More information is available at: www.vgarglab.com
Located in the Howard Hall, we have access to extensive core facilities ( https://www.medschool.umaryland.edu/physiology/Core-Facilities/ ; https://www.medschool.umaryland.edu/cibr/core/ ) for imaging, genomics/proteomics, and mouse phenotypic and transgenic studies. The environment within Dept. of Physiology is highly collaborative and opportunities are available to develop new collaborations depending on the research interest as long as it aligns with the major goals of the lab. Our group is also a part of BioMet - The Center for Biomedical Engineering and Technology ( https://www.biomet.umaryland.edu/ ), and thus has extensive collaboration within it, and has access to its resources including multiple imaging modalities like, Zeiss Airyscan, super-resolution imaging and multiphoton microscopes etc.
We are seeking exceptional individuals, with a track record of impactful publications, to join our new and highly collaborative team. Relevant areas of expertise include imaging, electrophysiological and molecular biology skills, and a strong desire to make a career in mitochondrial biology. Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than outstanding intellectual ability and strong research and quantitative skills. These individuals will work in collaboration with an outstanding group of scientists and engineers with long-standing track records in basic and translational research.
Interested applicants should contact Dr. Garg at email@example.com and include a Cover letter with a brief description of research interests, career goals, and a detailed CV with Names/contact information for three references (and the expected starting date) in a single PDF.
