A postdoctoral associate position is available in the laboratory of George Rodney, Ph.D. in the Department of Molecular Physiology & Biophysics at Baylor College of Medicine. The lab uses molecular biology and biochemical techniques, confocal fluorescent imaging, fluorescent detection of reactive oxygen species production, immuno- fluorescence imaging, in-vivo electroporation of cDNA constructs, along with in-vitro and in-vivo force measurements to assess sub-cellular reactive oxygen species production, Ca2+ signaling, and excitation- contraction coupling, in skeletal muscle. Preferred computer skills include Excel, Word, email, and PowerPoint. Experience with Origin or other statistical/graphing software is desired but not required. The strongest candidates will possess extensive experience with the use of mouse models, fluorescent imaging, live cell imaging, electrophysiology, biochemistry, molecular biology and have strong quantitative/computational skills. Attention to detail, a strong work ethic, excellent communication and organizational skills, and an ability to work as a member of a team is critical.
Salary will be commensurate with experience and follow the NIH recommended guidelines.
