Junior/Senior Postdoctoral Fellow in neuronal physiology
university of connecticut
May 10, 2018
Full Time - Experienced
Academic / Research
A postdoctoral fellowship is available to pursue the molecular and cellular mechanisms that neurons employ to control neuronal excitability. Our studies utilize electrophysiological recordings from brain slices and mammalian cell cultures. Projects study the role of developmental disorders associated KCNQ2-5 potassium channels in neuronal physiology using mice as a model system. Our laboratory is in the Department of Physiology and Neurobiology (PNB) at the University of Connecticut at Storrs.
