An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Coetzee Lab (http://k-channels.com/coetzee/) at NYU School of Medicine, New York, NY.
Factors affecting the Na+ channel can precipitate serious cardiac arrhythmias. Such factors include proteins that interact with Na+ channels. Our new data, recently published in eLife (https://elifesciences.org/articles/52373) show that KATP channels and Na+ channels functionally interact with each other. We are looking for a qualified individual to investigate the molecular basis and functional consequences of this interaction. We will use a multi-disciplinary approach that takes advantage of advanced electrophysiology techniques, super-resolution STORM microscopy, biochemistry, molecular biology, subcellular imaging of ion concentrations, and genetically altered animal models. The candidate must have a PhD and be highly motivated with excellent communication skills. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in cellular electrophysiology and imaging modalities. Additional training is available. The candidate will be expected to assist in study design and analysis, present research findings at conferences, and compose manuscripts. Please send a curriculum vitae and a cover letter describing research interests and experience to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
NYU is an equal opportunity employer. The recent U.S. News & World Report ranks NYU School of Medicine at #9 for research out of 130 medical schools nationwide.
