A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Christopher Ransom’s laboratory at the VA Puget Sound in Seattle, WA. The laboratory is affiliated with the University of Washington (Depts of Neurology, Physiology and Biophysics).
Work in the laboratory is interested in GABAergic mechanisms in the hippocampus and epilepsy. Ongoing projects are investigating GABA transporter function in seizures and the modulation of extrasynaptic GABAA receptors by GPCRs using both intracellular and extracellular electrophysiology, biochemical techniques, and in vivo EEG recordings.
The ideal applicant is a highly-motivated, enthusiastic investigator with a PhD in neuroscience or related field. Experience with patch-clamp recording from acute brain slices is required. Experience with fluorescent imaging techniques and animal models of epilepsy is desirable.
The position follows NIH pay scale with benefits and offers opportunity for considerable interaction with faculty and staff at the University of Washington.
Interested individuals can contact Dr. Christopher Ransom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Ransom is an epileptologist in the VA Puget Sound's Epilepsy Center of Excellence. He received MD and PhD degrees at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and completed neurology training and an epilepsy fellowship at Yale-New Haven hospital. Dr. Ransom is funded by a VA Merit Review award.
