A postdoctoral position is available to study voltage-gated ion channels. The lab is using gating modifier toxins to study the structural basis of voltage-dependent gating in K+ channels. We are also searching for new protein toxins targeting specific subtypes of voltage-gated ion channels (e.g. T-type Ca2+ channels and HAC channels) that can be used to examine the physiological roles of these channels in cellular contexts. Candidates with electrophysiology, protein biochemistry or molecular biology backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
