대한생리학회 회원님께.

 

안녕하십니까?
저는 작년에 미국에서 자리를 잡아 텍사스에있는 UTMB (University of Texas Medical Branch)에 있습니다. 최근에 NIH RO1이 되었다는 연락을 받아서 그 연구수행을 위해 박사후 과정을 받을려고 하오니 여러 곳에서 학생들을 추천해 주시면 정말 감사하겠습니다.
박사후 과정 모집 공고를 첨부하였사오니 참조하시기 바랍니다. 그럼 항상 좋은 연구하시고 건승하시길 기원합니다.

 

김유신 올림.

Postdoctoral Fellow Positions available to study Pain Neurobiology at The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) School of Medicine


The laboratory of Dr. Yu Shin Kim is seeking to fill two postdoc fellow positions funded by NIH RO1 to conduct research on basic, technically advanced and translational aspects of pain. The positions will be available immediately, and will be supported by a NIH RO1 and new faculty startup funding at UTMBSOM


Research topics in the lab include:

 

Although the mechanisms of hypersensitivity of individual neurons have been extensively studied, we still do not understand how dorsal root ganglia (DRG) neurons function at a populational level as an ensemble under physiological and pathological conditions, due to the lack of suitable tools and techniques. Additionally, we have been unable to easily and specifically visualize the many subtypes of sensory DRG neurons. In next five years, we will take novel approaches to overcome these shortcomings by combining state-of-the artin vivo DRG imaging, live recording, and in newly developed mouse transgenic lines. Our lab has recently developed a method for populational level high resolutionin vivo imaging and patch clamp recordings of DRG cells in live animal that is capable of analyzing activity over 1600 DRG neurons simultaneously.

 

The lab will use following approaches to accomplish the goals, behavioral assessment of nociception in rodents, fluorescence, multiphoton microscopy, in vivo imaging tools, immunohistology, basic molecular biology and protein biochemistry, and/or electrophysiology.


Candidates must have completed the requirements for the PhD degree or equivalent (neuroscience or a related scientific discipline) by the time of beginning their fellowship. They should also have a strong record of biomedical research accomplishment. Experience and training in electrophysiology is preferred but not required. Prior experience inin vitro or in vivo time-lapse imaging will be appreciated.


In addition, the successful candidates for a position should display the following characteristics:


1) Strong motivation


2) Ability to work both independently and collaboratively as part of a team to carry out creative and advanced pain research


3) Strong record-keeping skills


4) Ability to rationally design, execute, and interpret experiments


5) Willingness to work with experimental rodents


Applicants interested in the position should send their curriculum vitae, along with contact information for three references, to Dr. Yu Shin Kim at yukim@utmb.edu or yushink@gmail.com. Be sure to include the subject line:Postdoc fellow Positions
