Postdoc Position in the Yang Lab

Postdoc Position in the Yang Lab

One postdoc fellow position to study neurophysiology and neurological disorders is available in Dr. Huanghe’s Lab in the Department of Biochemistry and Neurobiology at the Duke University School of Medicine. Neuroscientists, electrophysiologists and ion channel biologists with high motivation, creativity and independence are welcome to apply.

The Yang Lab is working on understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms of human ion channel mutations or channelopathies using mouse models. We employ a combination of electrophysiology, cell biology, mouse models, behavioral tests, biophysical, biochemical and state-of-art imaging techniques. More information about our research and the lab can be found at https://sites.duke.edu/yanglab/.

Successful candidates must hold a PhD or equivalent degree with expertise relevant to the stated research areas. Motivated and independent individuals with a demonstrated track record in brain slice recording, mouse behavioral characterization and in vivo imaging are preferred, but we will also consider strong research experience in ion channel biophysics and patch clamping. Interested individuals should send a brief cover letter describing their career goals, research experience and interests, along with their current CV, and the contact information for three references to: huanghe.yang@duke.edu.
