Vascular smooth muscle and endothelial cell ion channels
Postdoctoral fellow position immediately available to studyphysiological functions and pathological alterations in arterial smooth muscle andendothelial cell ion channels.Projectsinclude studying blood pressure regulation by ion channels and regulation of trafficking,signaling and functions of TRP, BKCa, Kv and voltage-dependent Ca2+channels, similar to studies we have recently published (Leo et al PNAS 2014,Kidd et al Science Signaling 2015, Leo et al Science Signaling 2017).Techniques in the laboratory include, RT-PCR,Western blotting, biotinylation, immunofluorescence, FRET, patch-clampelectrophysiology, calcium imaging, pressurized artery myography and bloodpressure telemetry. Experience with molecularbiology, ion channel biochemistry, patch clamp electrophysiology, andcardiovascular physiology preferred.
