In Vivo Physiology/Pharmacology
A superb opportunity for a highly motivated, creative investigator capable of quickly learning new techniques to build on exciting progress we have made investigating the role of Nav channels in hyperexcitability disorders including chemotherapy-induced pain and neuropathic pain using single channel imaging, IPSCs, and whole animal studies and to collaborate with superb cell and molecular biologists, pharmacologists, imagers etc. in a highly interactive, collaborative group in the Center for Neuroscience and Regeneration Research, Yale School of Medicine, (see Akin et al. Brain 2021; Chen et al. Brain 2020; Akin et al. Sci Adv, 2019; Mis et al. J Neurosci. 2019). MD, PhD, or MD/PhD degree and publications in patch-clamp recordings, small animal studies, pharmacology or cell biology are needed.
- Experience in small animal physiology and/or pharmacology and/or behavior.
- Experience with primary neuronal cultures or neurons derived from iPSCs, advanced cell biology approaches or live cell imaging in vitro or in vivo, experience with transgenic animals are desirable.
- Rank will be commensurate with degree and experience.
- Exceptionally well-trained scientists with a relevant master’s-level degree, 10+ years of relevant experience and publications may be considered.
