Vascular smooth muscle and endothelial cell ion channels
NIH-funded Postdoctoral Fellow position immediately available to studyphysiological functions and pathological alterations in arterial smooth muscle andendothelial cell ion channels.Projectsinclude studying blood pressure regulation by ion channels and regulation of trafficking,signaling and functions of TRP, BKCa, Kv and voltage-dependent Ca2+channels, similar to studies we have recently published (Kidd et al. ScienceSignaling 2015, Leo et al. Science Signaling 2017, Bulley et al. eLife 2018,Hasan et al. PNAS, 2019). Techniques in the laboratory include, RT-PCR, Westernblotting, biotinylation, immunofluorescence, FRET, patch-clampelectrophysiology, calcium imaging, pressurized artery myography, bloodpressure telemetry and conditional knockout mouse models. Experience with molecularbiology, ion channel biochemistry, patch clamp electrophysiology, andcardiovascular physiology preferred.
