Title: Postdoctoral Training Fellow – Cryo-Electron Microscopy & Electrophysiology
Postdoctoral position in the structure and mechanism of receptor/ion channel complexes with Cryo-EM and electrophysiology in the laboratory of Nami Tajima at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio.
One postdoctoral position is available immediately to investigate the structure and function of mammalian ion channel signaling complexes using multidisciplinary approaches including structural analysis, electrophysiological patch-clamp recording, proteomics, biochemistry, and biophysics.
We are seeking an enthusiastic, highly motivated and creative individual with strong knowledge and expertise in structural biology and electrophysiology to work on a project investigating the structure-function of ligand-gated ion channel signaling complexes. Our research interests are focused on (i) understanding the regulatory mechanisms of ion channels and (ii) dissecting the signaling networks/ ion channel- channel interacting protein interactions in the context of neuronal/synaptic signaling.
The successful candidate must have a recent Ph.D. obtained within three years (or being in the process of completing one) in a relevant field with a demonstrated track record of productive research. Experience in single particle cryo-EM and/or patch-clamp recording is highly desirable but not necessary.
Interested applicants should submit (1) a cover letter describing research interests; (2) a CV; and (3) contact information for three references by Email to Nami Tajima (email@example.com), Department of Physiology and Biophysics, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, OH 44106.
