Department: IUSM - Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery
Campus: IU School of Medicine Indianapolis
POST-DOCTORALPOSITION IN INNEREARBIOLOGY We are looking for a motivated and creative post-doctoral fellow to join our group at the Indiana School of Medicine. Our NIH funded lab studies pathophysiology of the inner ear using a novel human stem cell-derived 3D inner ear organoid model in conjunction with genetic mouse models. We study genetically-mediated hair cell and neuronal degeneration in these model system to determine cellular networks that lead to cell death and to establish molecules that can prevent degeneration.
Our dynamic inner ear research group includes Rick Nelson MD PhD, Eri Hashino, PhD, and Karl Koehler PhD. Publications from the group include Nature, Nature Communications, Nature Biotechnology, Cell Reports.
Experimental approaches being used in the lab include CRISPR/Cas9, single cell RNA-seq, cell culture with live cell imaging, immunohistochemistry with confocal microscopy, Ca2+ imaging, coimmunoprecipitation and proteomics.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in biomedical sciences. Previous research experience in genetics and/or proteomics is highly desirable, but not required. Salary is compatible with NIH pay schedule.
