Postdoctoral Fellow – University of Michigan

The Apostolides lab ( has openings for post-doctoral research fellows. We are in the Department of Otolaryngology’s Kresge Hearing Research Institute at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI).

Please see for more information about the institute.

We study how the mammalian brain makes sense of sound. To this end we use cutting edge tools like 2-photon Ca2+ imaging, patch-clamp electrophysiology, and optogenetics in behaving mice and in vitro.

Potential projects include:

-Understanding how behaviorally relevant plasticity supports learned associations between sounds and consequences.

-Studying synaptic integration and cellular computations in cortical and sub-cortical auditory circuits.

-Testing how neural activity in the early auditory system supports perception of social communication signals, and how these mechanisms change in neurodevelopmental disorders.

We place a strong emphasis on training and mentoring in all aspects of science. This ranges from conceptual project development, technical expertise, grant writing, scientific presentation, and lab management.

Qualifications: Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in neuroscience or related discipline and have a track record of publication. Applicants with backgrounds in patch-clamp electrophysiology, computer programming, and/or auditory psychophysics are particularly appreciated.

How to apply: Please send an email to Pierre Apostolides ( with your C.V. and contact information for 2-3 professional references.
