Job Description

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is immediately available in the MacLean lab in the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of Rochester, NY. They are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated researcher to join their team and study the biophysics of glutamate receptors and acid-sensing ion channels. Research focuses on understanding essential mechanisms of channel activation and desensitization and how these processes can be modulated. Their work combines patch clamp electrophysiology with fast perfusion, non-canonical amino acid incorporation, modelling and fluorescence spectroscopy approaches.

The Candidate

The successful candidate will have recently received a PhD degree in neuroscience, pharmacology, physiology or other related field. Expertise in patch clamp electrophysiology is expected and additional experience with any one of: fluorescence microscopy, non-canonical amino acids and/or neuronal cultures is preferred. The successful candidate will benefit from an outstanding research environment boasting a rich history of ion channel study as well as a focus on career development and mentoring.
