Position and assignments

A postdoctoral position, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, is available in the laboratory of Stephan Kellenberger at the Department of biomedical Sciences (DSB) of the University of Lausanne.

Our laboratory investigates the pH-sensing ion channels "acid-sensing ion channels"(ASICs), with the aim of understanding their activation mechanism on a molecular level.

ASICs are neuronal ion channels involved in pain sensation, the expression of fear, and neurodegeneration after ischemia (for review see Kellenberger and Schild, Pharmacol Rev 67 : 1-35, 2015).

The postdoctoral fellow will study conformational changes in ASICs. To this end, she / he will use electrophysiological and fluorescent approaches in recombinantly expressed ASICs.

For further information, please consult the following publications that illustrate our approaches combining electrophysiology and fluorescence :

Vullo S et al. (2017) Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 114 : 3768-73,

Vullo S. et al. (2021) Elife 10.7554 / eLife.66488

We are a small, dynamic and motivated team. The position is for 2 years, with an initial, renewable contract of 1 year. The DSB, with 18 research teams, offers a stimulating and competitive research environment in modern biology with multidisciplinary expertise (www. / dsb). Lausanne, with its university and the EPFL is a center of life science research.
