Multiple postdoctoral positions are available for self-motivated individuals interested in studying the central pathways responsible for autonomic nervous, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems in health and disease. Selected individuals will join the NIH-funded, dynamic and collaborative laboratory of Dr. David D. Kline that focuses on CNS plasticity in response to acute and chronic hypoxia and its influence on breathing and blood pressure.
We are seeking candidates that have experience in, or are seeking to learn, in vitro and/or in vivo recording of central neurons. Methods used to answer our questions include patch-clamp electrophysiology, multi-electrode arrays, optical imaging, as well as, in vivo fiber photometry, single-unit and nerve recording, and opto- and chemo-genetic circuit manipulation. Ideally the successful applicant will have expertise in one or more of these approaches as well as an interest in central cardiorespiratory regulation or a desire to broaden their expertise into this area. Candidates must have a PhD, MD or comparable doctoral degree; prior training in neuroscience, cardiovascular and/or respiratory regulation is highly desirable.
Interested individuals should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names of 2-3 references via email to David D. Kline (KlineDD@missouri.edu). The University of Missouri is an equal opportunity employer.
