Postdoctoral Research Associate Position-Lab of Lavinia Sheets, Department of Otolaryngology, at the Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis.

A postdoctoral research associate position is available in the lab of Lavinia Sheets, Department of Otolaryngology, at the Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis.

The Sheets Lab focuses on understanding how traumatic injury damages sensory
hair cells and innervating nerves, and identifying cellular processes that drive repair
following damage. We address these questions using zebrafish as a model for
hearing and deafness. The lab incorporates many experimental approaches—
including histology, genome editing, functional imaging, optogenetics, and
behavior—to address research questions in auditory neuroscience. You can learn
more about what we do at our website: sheetslab.net/

Our lab is part of an exceptional and collaborative group of researchers affiliated
with Fay & Carl Simons Center for the Biology of Hearing and Deafness. We are
also members of the Washington University Zebrafish Consortium, which promotes
zebrafish research and supports one of the largest state-of-the-art zebrafish facilities
in the world.

Our research group welcomes and supports lab members from diverse identities,
backgrounds, and abilities, and is committed to a sustaining an inclusive
environment.
