The Molecular Bioelectricity Lab Jianmin Cui, Principal Investigator

Postdoctoral Position to Investigate Ion Channel Biology

A laboratory at Washington University in St. Louis is seeking highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellows to study the biology of ion channels. The laboratory (P.I. Jianmin Cui; website: investigates molecular mechanisms and physiological functions of potassium channels in health and disease. A combination of animal models, electrophysiology, biophysical, biochemical, imaging and computational techniques will be used in the laboratory to understand the structure-function relation, modulation, association with diseases of these channels, and to discover compounds that regulate channel function.
Motivated and enthusiastic individuals with a recent Ph.D. training in neuroscience, physiology, cell biology, chemistry/biochemistry, biophysics or biomedical engineering are welcome to apply. The lab plans to expand research directions, so that candidates with interests and backgrounds in in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology/imaging, mouse genetics or mouse models of dieases are encouraged to apply. The expected start date will be no later than January 1, 2016.
