We are seeking a self-motivated, highly committed individual with a PhD, and/or MD degree, or equivalent to join our group as a postdoctoral fellow, to study the regulation of Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) ion channels. We have projects on the heat-sensitive TRPM3 and TRPV1, the cold-sensitive TRPM8, the intestinal Ca2+ transporter TRPV6, and mechanosensitive Piezo1 and Piezo2 channels. We are interested in both the mechanistic regulation of these channels and their roles in biological processes such as pain, temperature and mechanosensation. The successful applicant will apply state-of-the-art molecular, electrophysiological and fluorescence-based tools to investigate the regulation of TRP channels. The applicant is expected to have a strong desire to understand basic science, and to perform mechanistic studies. The position requires experience in patch clamp electrophysiology. Experience in Ca2+ imaging and/or molecular biology and familiarity with computational modeling are also appreciated.
