Are you intending to spend a postdoc in Germany? Would like to apply for a Humboldt Fellowship and look for a host lab?
I’m seeking a candidate to support as a host: somebody with expertise or interest in electrophysiology (particularly extracellular techniques such as in vitro skin-nerve but also patch clamp), neuronal culture, immunohistochemistry/immunofluorescence, confocal imaging, and in vivo animal models.
Our group is interested in ion channels in primary sensory neurons, especially in delineating their physiological role in nociceptive transduction/electrogenesis as well as in the related pathophysiology (Vetter et al., 2013; Vetter et al., 2012; Zimmermann et al., 2011; Zimmermann et al., 2009). If you would like to work on understanding the molecular mechanism of cold temperature detection; in particular with respect to specific cold-sensitive TRP-channels and sodium channel subtypes, I would be happy to host your research as a Humboldt Fellow and help you with the application process.
We have all necessary equipment, including in vitro skin-nerve/jaw-nerve setup, patch clamp setups, cell culture, calcium imaging, in vivo testing of temperature preference, pain assays, and transgenic mice.
If you are a researcher with above average qualifications, at the beginning of your academic career, have completed your doctorate in the last four years, and see this as your opportunity, you should email Katharina Zimmermann.
