Vascular Smooth Muscle and Endothelial Cell Ion Channels
A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in Dr. Jonathan H. Jaggar lab, Department of Physiology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center. The Postdoctoral Fellow will study physiological functions and pathological alterations in arterial smooth muscle and endothelial cell ion channels and will be involved in projects include studying regulation of trafficking, signaling and functions of ion channels, similar to studies we have recently published (Bulley et al. eLife 2018, Hasan et al. PNAS, 2019, MacKay et al. eLife 2020). Techniques in the laboratory include RT-PCR, Western blotting, biotinylation, immunofluorescence, FRET, patch-clamp electrophysiology, calcium imaging, pressurized artery myography, blood pressure telemetry and conditional knockout mouse models. Experience with molecular biology, ion channel biochemistry, patch clamp electrophysiology, and cardiovascular physiology preferred.
