Postdoctoral Research Scholar in Ion Channel Biology


A postdoctoral research scholar position is available at the University of Iowa Health Care (Department of Internal Medicine, Cardiology) to study molecular mechanisms of Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) and LRRC8a/ SWELL1 ion channel regulation and signal transduction.  The laboratory uses electrophysiological (e.g. patch-clamp), imaging techniques, genetic mouse models (including CRISPR/cas9 technology), biochemical, and molecular approaches to investigate the regulation of signal transduction mechanisms of novel ion channels, including TRP/LRRC8 channels, in cardiac muscle, skeletal muscle, adipose tissue, endothelium and pancreatic beta-cells.

In addition to the strong laboratory environment, the postdoc will benefit from close interactions and collaborations with a dynamic ion channel community within the Department and the College of Medicine.

The University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine is in the top ten public medical schools in NIH funding.  Iowa City is a medium-sized culturally rich city that maintains outstanding communities in the arts, sciences, and literature.  There are numerous opportunities for outdoor activities.  USA Today ranked Iowa City as the third best-educated city in the nation and Forbes Magazine placed Iowa City among the top 10 small metropolitan areas for business.  Iowa City is a safe and inexpensive place to live.

Education Requirement:

Applicants require a Ph.D, preferably in the biological sciences (e.g. physiology, molecular biology, cell biology).

Required Qualifications:
