Postdoctoral neuroscience positions are available for self-motivated researchers interested in the neural control of the cardiorespiratory and autonomic nervous systems. Interested individuals will contribute to NIH-funded studies examining synaptic transmission, neuronal activity and ion channel function within nuclei of the brainstem and forebrain, as well as the communication between nuclei. Studies will examine the involvement of astroglia, reactive oxygen species, neuromodulators and exposure to low oxygen in these actions. Positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. David D. Kline at the University of Missouri. Details on the lab and its publications can be found at: http://biomed.missouri.edu/david-d-kline-phd/ and http://klinelab.dalton.missouri.edu/.
Individuals will have the opportunity to utilize a range of approaches including brain slice and isolated cell electrophysiology, opto- and chemo-genetics, cellular imaging, immunohistochemistry, RT-PCR, immunoblots and microinjection studies. The ideal applicant will have expertise in neurophysiology with experience in brain slice electrophysiology. Applicants must be creative, possess an exceptional work ethic, and independently complete experiments and data analysis. Selected individuals will join a highly interactive group of NIH-funded investigators with independent research programs studying neural control of the cardiorespiratory system.
Candidates must have a PhD, MD or comparable doctoral degree; prior training in neuroscience, cardiovascular and/or respiratory regulation is highly desirable. Salary commensurate with experience and NIH guidelines. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
Interested candidates should forward inquiries, along with a CV, brief statement of research interests, and contact information for three references to David Kline, PhD, at email@example.com.
