Staff Scientist Position, Yale Medical School: Ion Channel Physiology/Pharmacology
STAFF SCIENTIST: Ion Channel Physiology/Pharmacology. Position available at Yale Medical School for electrophysiologist with proven experience in patch-clamp and pharmacological analysis of ion channels in primary neuron cultures (rodent, human or iPSC) and brain slices. Incumbent will join a multidisciplinary research team investigating the role of Na channels in hyperexcitability disorders including neuropathic pain (Dib-Hajj and Waxman Ann. Rev. Neurosci, 2019; Mis et al J Neurosci 2019; Yang et al, Trends Pharmacol Sci., 2018) and novel neuroprotective strategies (Vrselja et al, Nature 2019). MD, PhD, or MD/PhD degree and publications in ion channel electrophysiology/pharmacology are essential.
Exceptionally well-trained scientists with a relevant master’s-level degree, 10+ years of relevant experience and publications may be considered.
Experience and publications with voltage- and/or current-clamp analysis of DRG neurons and/or iPSC-derived neurons, and with brain slice electrophysiology are desirable.
Rank will be commensurate with degree, experience, and publication record.
Superb opportunity to work collaboratively within a highly productive, interactive team setting.
Send statement of interest, CV and three letters of reference to: Stephen G. Waxman, MD, PhD (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sulayman D. Dib-Hajj, PhD (email@example.com).
