Electrophysiologist/Biophysicist: Ion Channels and Hyperexcitability 

We have an opening for an ion channel physiologist to join a multidisciplinary research group studying properties and roles of ion channels associated with hyperexcitability disorders such as pain. Doctoral degree and substantive experience in ion channel physiology are essential. Experience in slice recording, channel pharmacology, and/or optical imaging is a plus. Superb opportunity to study ion channels at the interface between basic and translational science, and collaboratively within a multidisciplinary group with molecular and cell biologists, pharmacologists, pain researchers, biophysicists and physiologists using voltage-clamp, current-clamp, dynamic clamp and optical methods.
