Position available for a recent graduate with interest in the cardiac and respiratory effects of ion channel mutations in epilepsy. The most common cause of mortality in epilepsy is sudden unexpected death (SUDEP). Although the exact causes of SUDEP remain unknown, seizures are thought to somehow initiate lethal cardiac and/or respiratory dysfunction. We are trying to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying SUDEP by examining mouse genetic epilepsy models using a combination of molecular approaches (immunohistochemistry, RT-PCR, western blot), in vivo physiological recordings (electroencephalography, electrocardiography, plethysmography), and in vitro brain slice and cardiomyocyte recordings.

To apply for this position, please submit your CV and a cover letter describing your research experience, interest and goals, along with three references to Dr. Edward Glasscock at firstname.lastname@example.org
