A postdoctoral position is available to work on a project involving electrophysiology of NMDA ionotropic glutamate receptors in the Costa lab located at Virginia Tech Center for Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease (CMMID) building, Blacksburg, VA.
A PhD with experience in patch clamp electrophysiology using HEK293 cells and/or mammalian brain cells are required for this position. Experience should be evidenced by publications. Additional technical skills including immunohistochemistry, primary neuronal culture, in-vivo pharmacology and behavioral assay would be a plus but not required. A recent graduate or final year graduate student expecting graduation soon may apply. Candidates with experience in Nanion Port-a-Patch electrophysiology equipment are particularly encouraged to apply.
This American Heart Association funded position is currently available for immediate start with one year agreement with possible extension for following years based on mutual interest.
Interested candidates should send their CV, cover letter and contact details of three references to Dr. Blaise Costa (email@example.com).
