Postdoc Position: Patch clamp electrophysiologist


A scientist with prior patch clamp experience (including use of PClamp
for current analysis) is sought to join a group characterizing plant
calcium-conducting cyclic nucleotide gated channels. Channel properties
as well as the role the channels play in plant innate immune signaling
will be the focus of the research. The project will involve channel
recordings from native plant cell membranes, as well as from oocytes and
HEK cells expressing channel constructs. The scientist will have an
opportunity to learn molecular biology research approaches, as well as
training in use of any of the channel characterization systems. Salary:
approximately $40-45,000 depending on experience. Contact: Gerry
Berkowitz (gberkowi from nsf.gov).  Berkowitz is currently a Program Director
at the National Science Foundation (Washington D.C. area) but directs a
research program at the home institution: University of Connecticut,
Agricultural Biotechnology Laboratory, Storrs, CT, USA.
