Vascular smooth muscle and endothelial cell ion channels

Postdoctoral position immediately available to study physiological functions and pathological alterations in arterial smooth muscle and endothelial cell ion channels.  Projects include studying blood pressure regulation by ion channels and regulation of trafficking, signaling and functions of TRP, BKCa, Kv and voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels, similar to studies we have recently published (Leo et al PNAS 2014, Kidd et al Science Signaling 2015, Leo et al Science Signaling 2017).  Techniques in the laboratory include, RT-PCR, Western blotting, biotinylation, immunofluorescence, FRET, patch-clamp electrophysiology, calcium imaging, pressurized artery myography and blood pressure telemetry.  Experience with molecular biology, ion channel biochemistry, patch clamp electrophysiology, and cardiovascular physiology preferred.  Required qualifications include a PhD or MD in Physiology or a related field.  Send curriculum vitae and names and addresses of three references to Dr. Jonathan H. Jaggar, Maury Bronstein Endowed Professor of Physiology, Department of Physiology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, 894 Union Avenue, Memphis, TN 38163, USA.
