Subject: Postdoctoral Research Position
Postdoctoral position to study kidney stone formation A postdoctoral fellow
position is available at the Institute of Clinical Research (ICR) at DC VA
Medical Center. The candidate will investigate about the mechanism of calcium
stone formation to develop new clinical intervention and therapy.
Specifically this NIH funded study will focus on the molecular candidates
that govern the regulation of calcium concentration inside the proximal
tubular lumen that contributes to formation of calcium stones, as well as the
potential in vivo interventions in our animal model. The project will also
focus on the development of tools to probe the role of TRP channels in
calcium stone disease. Studies will involve a wide range of approaches
including Ca2+ imaging, electrophysiology, molecular biology, mice genetics,
and proteomics. Desired skills and experience The candidate should have
recently received a Ph.D. in molecular signaling, physiology, biochemistry or
a related discipline. A successful candidate will be highly motivated and
eager to develop and pursue a novel research program.
Applicants are asked to include a CV, a brief description of research
interests, and an anticipated start date. Please send your application to
Chief, Calcium Signaling Laboratory, DCVAMC.
