Central Auditory Physiology Laboratory


  • Postdoctoral position in auditory brainstem development

    The Central Auditory Physiology Laboratory at Northwestern University is hiring a full-time postdoctoral position in the Departments of Communication Sciences and Disorders and Neurobiology. The position is supported by the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIH/NIDCD R01 DC017167). The overall goal of the funded project is to determine the role of neurotrophin signaling in the establishment/maintenance of tonotopy in the developing auditory brainstem. We use a variety of methods to address this, including whole-cell patch-clamp electrophysiology, auditory brainstem responses, in ovo electroporation of plasmids to spatially and temporally regulate gene expression, immunohistochemistry, cellular and molecular approaches and computational modeling. The ideal candidate would have experience in neuroscience, electrophysiology, molecular biology, and histology. The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled. Stipend and benefits are commensurate with NIH guidelines set forth in announcement NOT-OD-19-036.
