Postdoctoral fellow position in Ear Mechanics, Wayne State University
The laboratory of Xiying Guan is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to work on bone-conduction hearing mechanisms. During bone-conduction stimulation, the skull vibration simultaneously stimulates the middle and the inner ear, challenging our ability to understand the underlying mechanisms. We investigate how sound pressures are generated in the cochlea and how the cochlear traveling waves are formed in bone-conduction. We perform intracochlear measurements of sound pressures and vibrations in human cadaveric ears. We develop circuit network models and finite element models to assist data analysis.
The Guan lab is located at the Integrative Biosciences Center (IBio) at Wayne State University (https://ibio.wayne.edu/). The lab has expertise in acoustic and biomechanical aspects of the middle ear and the cochlea. Our recent publications can be found here: https://clasprofiles.wayne.edu/profile/hf7363
Applicants should have a PhD in mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, hearing science, or other relevant fields.
Previous experience with finite element modeling is a plus.
To apply, please provide (1) cover letter describing research experience & interests, (2) CV, (3) publication reprints (3 max), and (4) contact information for three references to Dr. Xiying Guan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
