The Departments of Pediatrics and Cellular & Molecular Physiology at Yale University School of Medicine are seeking outstanding applications for a unique postdoctoral position at the interface between embryology and electrophysiology to study the role of ion channels in early embryonic development in the laboratories of Dr. Mustafa Khokha and Dr. David Zenisek. Successful applicants will be part of an interdisciplinary team studying KCNH potassium channels for which mutations lead to embryonic patterning defects and are implicated in cardiac birth defects. Candidates must have (or expect to have) a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in biology-related discipline. The successful candidate is expected to preform electrophysiological measurements from Xenopus embryos and human embryonic stem cells. Preference will be given to applicants with expertise in electrophysiology, especially whole-cell voltage clamp, but excellent candidates from other fields will also be considered.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter describing previous research experience, CV/resume and contacts of three references to email@example.com
Yale University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from women, members of minority groups, persons with disabilities and protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
