Two positions are available to investigate cellular and molecular
properties of the sodium-calcium exchange system and its role in
subcellular Ca2+ signaling. The collaborative project involves two
laboratories and the applicant is encouraged to spend some project-
time in both labs.
Studies are performed in isolated and cultured cell systems using a
combination of biophysical methods (including fluorescent
indicator techniques, patch-clamp, laser-scanning confocal
microscopy, flash-photolysis of caged compounds, computer
simulations) and molecular biology methods (transfection and
expression of cloned genes).
