Postdoctoral Scientists (3) for Reversal of Hearing Loss Project at King’s College London
We are recruiting three highly-motivated postdoctoral research scientists to investigate whether it is possible to reverse hearing loss due to different types of pathology, and if so, to determine the limits of the critical period for intervention. Mice with primary defects in different inner ear structures will be used together with a genetic approach for activating expression of key genes after hearing loss has occurred. Structural and electrophysiological assays will be used to track changes in hearing function. Diagnostic tools will be developed to identify reversible types of pathology to facilitate translation. Experience in either mouse genetics or auditory research is required.
The posts are available for either 3 or 4 years, funded by Wellcome and RNID. Closing date 7th November.
Contact Professor Karen Steel at email@example.com for informal enquiries.
