Postdoctoral research position to study the synaptic and circuit mechanism of hearing and balance
A postdoctoral position is available in the Balmer Lab in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University to study the neurophysiological mechanisms of hearing and balance. We are looking for highly motivated individuals interested in synaptic physiology and sensory neuroscience.
The goal of the Balmer Lab is to discover how brain circuits function and how they contribute to hearing and balance. We investigate neurophysiological mechanisms on multiple levels of analysis, utilizing in vitro acute brain slice electrophysiology to study synapses, viral tracing to study brain circuitry and in vivo electrophysiology to study how cells and circuits underlie hearing and balance. Please see balmerlab.com
The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in neuroscience or equivalent and a strong publication record. Previous experience with in vitro brain slice electrophysiology, in vivo auditory neurophysiology, and/or viral tracing is preferred. The applicant should have effective written and verbal communication skills, strong technical abilities and be independent, curious and motivated.
Please send your CV and a description of your research interests to:
