Research Fellow at University of Michigan

A new opening postdoctoral researcher position in physiology is available at University of Michigan, USA. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible.

A cover letter is required for consideration for this position and should be attached as the first page of your resume. The cover letter should address your specific interest in the position and outline skills and experience that directly relate to this position. Please send cover letter, resume and list of three references (name/contact info) to Pierre Apostolides, Ph.D. (piaposto@med.umich.edu).

The Apostolides Lab is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to understand the synaptic and cellular bases of auditory perception. Our primary techniques are patch-clamp electrophysiology and 2-photon imaging in brain slices and in behaving mice.

-How do neural circuits extract meaningful information from noisy or ambiguous sensory signals?

-How do "higher order", associational brain regions control theencoding of behaviorally relevant auditory information in"primary" sensory regions?

-How do long-range descending projections in the central auditory system control auditory processing and perception?

-To what extent do neuromodulators such as serotonin, noradrenaline and acetylcholine control specific cell-types in central auditory circuits, and what are theconsequences for centralauditoryfunction?

-What are the cellular mechanisms governing synaptic plasticity in animal models of hearing disorders?

The Apostolides Lab is the newest member of the Kresge Hearing Research Institute (KHRI), University of Michigan Medical School. KHRI and the neuroscience community at the U-M provide a highly supportive and diverse research environment and excellent career development opportunities for postdoctoral fellows.
