Ion Channels in Model Organisms
Positions are immediately available in the Division of Genetic
Medicine, Vanderbilt University to study the molecular physiology and
genetics of ion channels in C. elegans and zebrafish. Applicants
should have completed graduate training and/or limited postdoctoral
training in one of the following areas: molecular biology, genetics,
physiology, neuroscience, developmental biology or cell biology.
Prior training with C. elegans or zebrafish is highly desirable.
Several exciting and interdisciplinary projects are available for
study in a state-of-the-art and highly collaborative research
environment. Projects include: functional biology of chloride
channels in C. elegans (epithelial cell focus), and role of potassium
channels in cardiac excitability in zebrafish. Interested candidates
should email CV and names of 3 references to:
