The postdoctoral associate will work on projects using in vitro organotypic cultures and mouse genetics to study signaling and gene regulation. The research projects involve the generation of transgenic cell lines using CRISPR; generation and maintenance of mouse models of inner ear development and deafness; and characterization of molecular and cellular phenotypes of genetic mutants.
Ability to plan, execute and analyze an independent research project is essential, as well as exceptional verbal and written communication skills. Preference will be given to self-motivated and career-oriented individuals.
- Ph.D. in biological or related life sciences is required;
- Strong training background in developmental and molecular biology is preferred;
- Other areas of experience/ training include microdissection, microscopy, and cell culture;
- Exceptional verbal and written communication skills;
- Self-motivated and career-oriented individual preferred;
- Experience working with genetic model systems is required; and
- Demonstrated writing ability as evidenced by significant contribution/leadership role in bringing a minimum of one 1st author paper from graduate work to publication.
