NIH-funded Postdoctoral Position Available

NIH-funded Postdoctoral Position in Auditory Physiology and Perception

Auditory Neuroscience Group, NEOMED (Northeast Ohio Medical University)

A NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available to study the effects of developmental hearing loss on auditory processing. Using communication signals and other auditory stimuli, the lab conducts multi-site electrophysiology in behaving animals, in vivo intracellular recording, and computational analyses to evaluate population codes for normal and degraded auditory perception, and the underlying synaptic mechanisms.

Our laboratory is part of a larger, very active Auditory Neuroscience Research Group. We have combined expertise in multiple approaches (slice, intracellular in vivo, and chronic neurophysiology; optogenetics; calcium imaging; behavior; anatomy) as well as across brain regions (auditory brainstem, auditory midbrain, auditory cortex, amygdala). The group is highly interactive and accessible; the successful candidate can benefit from this expertise and from ongoing collaborations within the group.

The position is available immediately, with the potential for continuation through April 2018. Candidates should have experience with electrophysiological recording and/or with behavior, experience in working with animals, and a strong interest in auditory processing. Comfort with Matlab and some computational/programming skills are beneficial.

For more information, please contact Dr. Merri Rosen (mrosen@xxxxxxxxxx<mailto:mrosen@xxxxxxxxxx>  330-325-6516).
