ION CHANNEL PHYSIOLOGY/ PHARMACOLOGY/ AND CELL BIOLOGY, YALE MEDICAL SCHOOL: Two staff scientist positions (rank will be commensurate with degree and experience) available at the Center for Neuroscience & Regeneration Research, Yale Medical School. One position requires experience in cell biology and imaging. The second position is for an electrophysiologist with experience in patch-clamp and pharmacological analysis of ion channels. They will join a multidisciplinary research team investigating role of Na channels in hyperexcitability disorders including neuropathic pain (see Akin et al. Sci Adv, 5, eaax4755, 2019; Dib-Hajj and Waxman Annu Rev Neurosci 42, 87-106, 2019; Yang et al, Trends Pharmacol Sci, 2018). MD, PhD, or MD/PhD degree and publications in ion channel electrophysiology/pharmacology or cell biology/imaging are essential. Exceptionally well-trained scientists with a relevant master’s-level degree, 10+ years of relevant experience and publications may be considered. Experience with voltage- and/or current-clamp analysis of DRG neurons or neurons derived from iPSCs, live cell imaging in vitro or in vivo, experience with transgenic animals are desirable. Superb opportunity to work collaboratively within a highly productive, interactive team setting. Send statement of interest, CV and three letters of reference to: Stephen G. Waxman, MD, PhD (stephen.waxman@yale.edu) or Sulayman D. Dib-Hajj, PhD (sulayman.dib-hajj@yale.edu).
