Experienced Electrophysiologist (Postdoc) - Arrhythmia

For a EU-funded project on cellular and molecular mechanisms of arrhythmia, we seek a skilful electrophysiologist, immediately, for up to 5 years. Experience in patch clamp and TEVC, ideally in the animal model Caenorhabditis elegans (body wall and pharynx muscle), is highly welcome. Optogenetic methods, utilizing Channelrhodopsin and Halorhodopsin, and candidate mutations will be used to trigger and study arrhythmia. A PhD in physiology, biology or biochemistry is needed.
