Job Title: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Neurophysiology
Job Number: 60844
Location: Columbia, US
Overview/Job Description. The Dalton Cardiovascular Center in the Division of Research, Innovation & Impact at the University of Missouri is seeking three postdoctoral fellows to engage in ongoing studies to investigate autonomic regulation in cardiovascular function in both health and disease (including diet, epilepsy and neurodegeneration) in the laboratory of Dr. Carie Boychuk. We have a highly interactive and dynamic research group that evaluates autonomic circuits in an integrative fashion by testing outcomes at the level of individual cell(s), circuit analysis, and whole-animal neurophysiology. We use a variety of techniques including electrophysiology (both single cell and vagal nerve recordings), fluorescent/laser/light microscopy, radio telemetry, molecular biology, and opto/chemogenetics.
Qualifications. Applicants should have a PhD and/or MD in neuroscience, physiology or related fields. Applicants who anticipate to defend their thesis in the near future are also encouraged to apply. We are seeking individuals with a demonstrated record of careful experimental methods, publications, excellent written and communication skills and an ability to design and perform research in an independent manner. Our group also strives to foster an inclusive and vibrant research environment. Experience in whole-cell patch clamp electrophysiology and whole animal neurophysiology is preferred but not required. Training is available for candidates that wish to expand their research toolbox. Underrepresented minorities are highly encouraged to apply.
Salary is commensurate with experience. Additional incentives are provided, including signing bonuses and moving expenses.
Contact Dr. Boychuk for all questions. To apply, please email CV with publications, and detailed contact information for 3 references to:
