POSTDOCTORAL POSITION - Ion channels in endothelial cells
Postdoctoral Fellow position immediately available to study physiological functions and pathological alterations in endothelial cell ion channels. Projects include studying regulation of trafficking, signaling mechanisms and modulation of arterial contractility, similar to studies we have recently published (Bulley et al. eLife 2018, Hasan et al. PNAS 2019, MacKay et al. eLife 2020). Techniques in the laboratory include RT-PCR, Western blotting, biotinylation, immunofluorescence, FRET, super-resolution microscopy, patch-clamp electrophysiology, calcium imaging, arterial myography, blood pressure telemetry and the extensive use of conditional knockout mouse models. Experience with molecular biology, biochemistry, patch-clamp electrophysiology and cardiovascular physiology preferred.
