Postdoctoral Fellow or Staff Scientist – Washington University School of Medicine
The Rutherford Laboratory at Washington University is looking for a postdoctoral fellow or staff scientist / research associate to lead an ongoing research program on mechanisms of excitotoxicity in acquired hearing loss. This is an opportunity to contribute to a serious public health challenge with translational neuroscience in an exciting and highly collaborative research environment.
An ideal candidate would have experience in synapse anatomy and function, cellular electrophysiology, histological analysis of mouse cochlea, ABR testing of cochlear function, and management of mouse lines. Computational skills are added value. Desire to work independently and in groups is essential.
Our laboratory has experience in cellular electrophysiology, auditory functional testing, histology, immunofluorescence, and microscopy. Please see PMC6554621, PMC8287724, PMC6620899. We enjoy collaborations with other laboratories at Washington University and elsewhere to determine the molecular anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology of glutamate receptor pore-forming and auxiliary subunits in the cochlea, for targeting with small molecule therapy to treat noise-induced hearing loss.
