The Ó Maoiléidigh lab at Stanford University is seeking two Postdoctoral Scholars. Our lab’s goal is to answer fundamental questions about how sound signals are processed by the auditory system. We are seeking two highly-motivated scientists to work on a multidisciplinary team studying the mechanics and physiology of the ear’s sensory cells in collaboration with the Ricci and Grillet labs at Stanford University. This work involves cutting-edge approaches to computational biology, imaging, and single-cell physiology.
Position 1: (Computation) Develop and use models of the ear’s sensory cells to understand how they detect mechanical input caused by sound. Experience in hearing or cell mechanics is not required. Experience modeling biological systems is desired.
Position 2: (Experiment) Measure the morphology, mechanics, and responses of the ear’s sensory cells using optical/electron microscopy, electrophysiology, and by mechanically stimulating individual cells. Expertise in electron microscopy or single-cell biophysics is not required, but strong motivation to learn these and other techniques is desired.
