A postdoctoral position is immediately available to study the function and plasticity of vestibular and sensorimotor interactions in the auditory brain stem. This position is funded partially by a University of Michigan Neuroscience Initiative and partially by a recent R01 award from the National Institutes of Health (NIDCD). Salary will be commensurate with the NIH scale for postdoctoral fellows. The Research Fellow will participate in a highly collaborative environment within and outside the Kresge Hearing Research Institute at the University of Michigan. Multichannel electrophysiology, tract tracing and immunohistochemistry and optogenetic techniques will be incorporated in this investigation.
Applicants should have Ph.D. in neuroscience, bioengineering, or a related discipline. Preference will be given to applicants with electrophysiology experience and MATLAB programming. Experience with immuniohistochemistry and optogentics would also be valuable.
The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
