The Shore Lab is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to investigate how neural circuits in the auditory system perform computations essential for hearing in normal and pathological systems. In particular, our lab aims to understand how circuits in the cochlear nucleus are altered after cochlear damage to induce phantom perception. We pursue this aim by examining multichannel single unit physiology, and network architecture in vivo. We examine non-auditory as well as cochlear activation of the cochlear nucleus.
The Shore Lab is an established 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.
Prior experience with in electrophysiology, optogenetics, and quantitative assessment is desired, but candidates with other relevant experience and a strong interest in the role of neural circuits in sensory perception will be considered.
