Postdoctoral Research Assistant
A postdoctoral research assistant position is available at the Oral & Maxillofacial Department at UT Health Science Center San Antonio.
We seek a highly motivated individual to contribute to NIH-funded research projects that target inflammatory pain signaling mechanisms in primary afferent neurons. This position will also afford the opportunity for collaborations with other research labs that also study pain.
The research position involves a combination of electrophysiological, calcium imaging, molecular, and biochemical applications, requiring the applicant to have a documented history of performing both patch and voltage-clamping experiments in a whole cell configuration. As a member of our research team, the researcher will be able to learn new techniques in rodent behavior, primary cell culture, DNA mutagenesis, and biochemistry, with access to confocal imaging and TIRF-FRET core facilities.
The ideal candidate should hold a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree, possess a strong background in cellular electrophysiology (ligand and voltage-gated ion channels) and the analyses of electrophysiological data. The candidate should also have a successful publication history, and should be able to write and edit manuscripts in English.
