Positions are available for a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Amy Lee, PhD in the Dept. of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Iowa (https://medicine.uiowa.edu/physiology/). We are broadly interested in Ca2+ signaling mechanisms underlying the development, function, and repair of the nervous system. Our current areas of research include:
Our research is highly collaborative, and multiple opportunities are available at the University of Iowa for appointment to institutional training grants. Our lab is located within the Pappajohn Biomedical Institute (https://medicine.uiowa.edu/pbi/), a community of interdisciplinary scientists and clinicians engaged in fundamental and translational biomedical research. We are also affiliated with the newly established Iowa Neuroscience Institute (https://medicine.uiowa.edu/iowaneuroscience/). The University of Iowa is one the nation’s premier public research universities (https://uiowa.edu/about) and is located in the heart of Iowa City, a college town with a rich history in the arts and sciences.
Responsibilities include leading a research project through publication, attending lab meetings and departmental seminars/workshops, oversight of electrophysiological and imaging equipment, mentoring graduate and/or undergraduate students, and assisting Dr. Lee in grant-writing and developing new research directions. Successful candidates will have a PhD in the Neurosciences or relevant field, a strong record of productivity, excellent communication (written and verbal) skills, and an ability to work in, and foster, a multi-cultural environment. Experience in patch-clamp electrophysiology and optical imaging in various preparations is highly desirable.
Interested candidates should send CV, including contact information for 3 references, and statement of interest to Amy Lee (email@example.com).
