Description

POST-DOC POSITION IN NEUROSCIENCE (EC COUPLING)



We are looking for a highly motivated candidate to fill a full-time Postdoc position in the laboratory of Marta Campiglio, in the department of Physiology in the Medical University of Innsbruck.

Our research focuses on skeletal muscle excitation-contraction coupling, which depends on the physical interaction of the voltage sensor, the voltage-gated calcium channel CaV1.1 on the transverse tubule membrane, and the calcium release channel, the RyR1 (Ryanodine receptor 1) on the sarcoplasmic reticulum. The mechanism of this interaction is still elusive and recently an adaptor protein, STAC3, was identified as essential in this process.

In the framework of a project recently funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), we aim to uncover the roles of multiple interactions between STAC3, a newly discovered adaptor protein, and the calcium channel CaV1.1.



YOUR PROFILE:

• PhD or equivalent qualification

• Solid experience in electrophysiology

• Solid knowledge of statistics; proficiency with GraphPad Prism or SPSS

• Enthusiastic, self - motivated, creative, and proactive in solving problems and developing new ideas.



WE OFFER:

• 3 years employment (full time) at Medical University of Innsbruck.

• Gross salary of EUR 3,889.50 according to the salary scheme of the FWF (https://www.fwf.ac.at/en/research-funding/personnel-costs/).

• State-of-the-art facilities and international collaborations.



Please send your application including CV, motivation letter, and contact details of 2 referees within a single PDF file to: marta.campiglio(at)i-med.ac.at
