Highly motivated postdoctoral candidates are invited to join the laboratory of Zhaozhu Qiu at Johns Hopkins University. Chloride is the most abundant free anion in animal cells, its movement is critical for life. However, chloride channels are considerably under-studied. The Qiu lab develops high throughput functional genomics screening approaches and has successfully identified two novel chloride channels: SWELL1 volume-regulated anion channel and PAC proton-activated chloride channel. Please visit https://www.qiulab.org/ for detail.
The Qiu lab is interested in elucidating the molecular identity, regulation, cell biological and physiological function of novel ion channels with a focus on the nervous system (neuron and glia), and revealing their potential role in diverse neurological disease. Candidates with a doctoral degree and strong background in molecular and cellular biology are encouraged to apply. Experience with electrophysiology, live cell/two photon imaging, opto/chemogenetics, single cell sequencing, genome editing, and molecular and cellular neuroscience is a plus.
Johns Hopkins University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and provides a stimulating and collaborative environment for biomedical research. Our lab is affiliated with the Departments of Physiology, and Neuroscience at the School of Medicine. The Baltimore/Washington D.C. region also offers rich professional and living opportunities.
To apply please provide a cover letter (with statement of prior experience and research interests), CV, and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Zhaozhu Qiu at email@example.com.
