A Postdoctoral Position is available for a highly motivated individual with a strong interest in integrated approaches to study ion channel function in sensory signaling, pain and inflammation. Candidates should have a strong enthusiasm for working with animal models of inflammatory disease and a solid background in general biochemical, molecular biological, pharmacological, toxicological or physiological methods. Experience with ion channel electrophysiology, fluorescent imaging methods or mouse transgenic methods is desirable but not necessary.
