A position for a PhD student is available at the Institute of Physiology at the Medical School of RWTH Aachen University.
We are looking for a motivated person to elucidate the gating mechanism of acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) by mutagenesis and electrophysiological analysis. Experience with either molecular biological or electrophysiological methods, or both, and interest in molecular simulations would be an advantage.
We are a young group employing a multidisciplinary approach using molecular biological, electrophysiological, and cell biological methods. Our collaboration with the Research Center Jülich (Prof. Carloni) provides access to a super-computer for molecular simulations. We offer a friendly and stimulating atmosphere, interesting research projects and state-of-the art equipment. Please visit our website for more information: http://www.physiology.rwth-aachen.de/
The project is funded by the DFG; funding is available for an initial period of 2 years, starting any time during 2011.
Please direct inquiries and your application including names and addresses of two referees to:
