University of Southern California – Caruso Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
Postdoctoral Position—Auditory Neuroscience
Dr. Radha Kalluri’s laboratory at the University of Southern California is looking for a talented and energetic post-doctoral scholar. Our laboratory is studying the biophysical mechanisms underlying functional diversity in the sensory neurons of the inner ear. Experimental approaches include patch-clamp electrophysiology, cell culture, immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy, and neuronal modeling. Post-doctoral trainees in the Kalluri lab have ample opportunities for enhanced career development as a part of an extensive training community anchored by an NIH funded T32 training grant in Hearing and Communications Neuroscience. In addition, the laboratory is embedded within Zilkha Neurogenetics Institute where trainees will be exposed to a wide variety of neuroscience and biophysics. The post-doctoral scholar will be expected to perform research, write papers and grants, present research at conferences, and help to mentor the undergraduate and graduate students in the laboratory.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in neuroscience, biomedical sciences, and or engineering. Previous research experience with patch-clamp electrophysiology is desirable, but not required. Generous salary and benefits.
Applications should include a cover letter describing research experience & interests, CV, and contact information for two references. Applicants should submit their materials to email@example.com.
