Royal Society-funded studentship starting in October 2013 - Electrophysiology in IP3 receptors

Applicants are sought for a Royal Society-funded studentship starting in October 2013 to work with Dr. Taufiq Rahman on electrophysiological studies of IP3 receptors in native membranes.

Project: The project will essentially involve single channel recording and subsequent kinetic analysis of IP3 receptor using the patch-clamp technique. Additional techniques that may be used in the project include mutagenesis, cloning and Ca2+ release assay.

Requirements: Applicants should have (or expect to obtain) at least the equivalent of a UK 2:1 honours degree in biological sciences and prior experience in a relevant technique is preferable but some lab-based research experience is essential.

Further particulars and contact details: The studentship will cover the University fees and a maintenance grant at standard UK/EU Research Council rate. Interested candidates should contact (with CV and references from two referees) Dr Taufiq Rahman, Department of Pharmacology, Tennis Court Road, Cambridge CB2 1PD (email:mtur2@cam.ac.uk) for further discussion.
