Postdoctoral Positions in Hair Cell Regeneration
Our projects utilize species ranging from zebrafish to mammals and address hair cell development and regeneration, specifically focusing on: 1) learning how to reverse proliferative quiescence that develops as sensory neuroepithelia mature, and 2) understanding the control of cellular differentiation in the ear via expression analyses that utilize Affymetrix GeneChips and other approaches, and through in vitro and in vivo approaches that examine cellular signal transduction, using confocal, multi-photon and other forms of microscopy.
Past trainees from our lab are faculty members and lab heads at UCLA, University College London, Washington University at St. Louis, NIH, and elsewhere. The successful candidate will have strong motivation, strength in molecular biology, bioinformatics, cell biology, neuroscience, developmental biology, or biochemistry, and the ability to fit into a high-morale lab group.
Our lab is located within the Neuroscience Department of a top-rated public university in beautiful Charlottesville, VA. It is well equipped and the salary is competitive.
