The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (UPSOM) Department of Pharmacology & Chemical Biology is seeking a candidate for Research Instructor position outside the tenure stream.
The successful candidate will participate in experiments examining the spinal circuitry involved in the control of the external urethral sphincter (EUS and urinary bladder function. The candidate will also be involved in studies examining the effects of high frequency electrical stimulation as well as heating and cooling on the electrical properties of dissociated sensory neurons.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. or an M.D. and at least five years postdoctoral experience conducting neurophysiological studies of the mammalian spinal cord. Ability to perform whole cell patch clamp recordings in spinal cord slice preparations and in dissociated dorsal root ganglion cells is essential.
