Available Postdoctoral Position Details
Posted: 5/6/2013
We have an NIH-funded postdoc position available to fill immediately. The ideal candidate will be within 3 years of completing their Ph.D. degree and will have extensive experience in ion channel electrophysiology/pharmacology and molecular biology. They must have excellent organizational/time-management skills, strong critical thinking skills, and be able to work independently or as part of a team. The project will focus on defining the mechanism of action/molecular binding sites for novel small-molecule modulators of clinically relevant inward rectifier potassium channels using electrophysiology, mutagenesis, MTS-protection assays, high-throughput screening, medicinal chemistry, and molecular modeling (Lewis et al., 2009, Bhave et al., 2010; 2011; Raphemot et al., 2011). Chemistry experience is not necessary. Experience with comparative homology modeling would be a plus, but not essential.
