Post-Doctoral, Kim lab, Chicago Medical School/Rosalind Franklin University

A post-doctoral fellow position is available to work on an NIH-funded project identifying and characterizing novel genes that have implications in degenerative diseases in the Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, Chicago Medical School/Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science.
We are primarily interested in studying degenerative mechanisms of muscle and neuronal cells using C. elegans as a model system. Our study indicates that alteration in the membrane excitability is one of the early steps in the degeneration process. The researcher will work independently on studying novel molecules altering the membrane excitability or elucidating the underlying downstream mechanism further. Prior experience in electrophysiology is preferable.
