A fully funded postdoctoral position is available at the Department of Head and Neck Surgery Communication Sciences of Duke University School of Medicine. The on-going projects use our established tinnitus detection method in rodents to study cellular and molecular cascades in tinnitus. We apply a wide spectrum of approaches, including advanced molecular methods, state-of-the-art imaging, sophisticated gene delivery methods, and modern rodent behavioral tests.
The candidate must have a strong commitment to research and scientific ethics. The successful candidate will work in a collaborative and dynamic environment with outstanding resources to promote innovative research. The PI will work closely with the postdoc for her/his productivity and success, and mentor the postdoc to obtain her/his first federal grant. The applicants must be creative and capable of designing, conducting, and troubleshooting experiments independently, as well as working with interdisciplinary research teams in a highly professional manner. The candidate will be expected to analyze data, write manuscripts and grant applications.
The main project for this position is to investigate the neural pathways and molecular pathways involved in noise-induced tinnitus. Self-motivated individuals – who obtained a PhD or MD degree – are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate is expected to have a strong background in molecular analysis methods such as scRNA-seq and smFISH with proficient skills in confocal imaging techniques. Prior experience in mouse surgery and behavioral testing is highly desirable.
