POSTDOC

Are you excited by excitability? This position may be for you. The Baker Lab is seeking self-motivated, creative, post-doctoral fellows to investigate voltage-gated ion channels in the retina. We have two major NIH-funded areas of focus investigating: the coordinated assembly and trafficking of K+ channels and the roles of Ca2+ channels in photoreceptor ribbon synapses. We use a wide variety of in vitro and in vivo techniques to further our projects, including cell biological, genetic, and biochemical approaches in frog and mouse models.

Basic requirements include a PhD in Cell Biology, Neurobiology, Biochemistry or a related area. Successful applicants will have a solid publication record, strong oral and written communication skills, and the ability to work effectively in a team. Expertise in state of the art molecular and cellular biology skills is necessary. Experience in one or more of the following areas is highly desired: live cell imaging, super-resolution imaging, proteomics, optogenetics, or gene therapy.

Salary is commensurate with NIH guidelines and includes benefits. Iowa City is a small city friendly to families and young singles; it consistently ranks as a top community in which to live.

For consideration submit the following 3 documents:

  1. An NIH or NSF style Biosketch
  2. A research proposal – this should be a one page document, preferably following the NIH style for a specific aims page, describing a project that could be completed in 1-2 years that you would like to lead. The project must further the interests of the lab (to the best of your understanding given our publication record).
  3. Contact information for three references
