A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Bob and Corrine Frick Center for Heart Failure and Arrhythmia at the Ohio State University’s Dorothy M. Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute. Our group is investigating the role the role of sodium-calcium nanodmains in cardiac arrhythmogenesis, with the particular focus on triggering events that result in aberrant calcium release. We use an array of techniques and models including optical mapping of ex vivo hearts, conventional (patch clamp) and fluorescence-coupled electrophysiology (patch clamp in tandem with rapid confocal calcium imaging) and scanning ion conductance microscopy-guided single-channel recordings (aka smart-patch). This position is for an applicant who will use cellular and electrophysiological techniques to measure ion fluxes through various ion channels in cardiomyocytes and those expressed in heterologous systems. Successful candidates can be involved in multiple projects to enhance productivity and training objectives to develop novel skillsets commensurate with the applicant’s career goals.


Preferred expertise: Prior experience with cellular electrophysiology is preferred. Expertise in cell culture and molecular biological techniques is also of value. Postdoctoral fellows and PhD students in the final stages of their degree are encouraged to apply.


Appointment: Applicants will be reviewed immediately and until the position is filled. Salary will be funded through recently awarded NIH grant funds and will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Please send your curriculum vitae, a brief description of research interests and career goals, and contact information for three references to Dr. Przemyslaw Radwanski.
