Looking for a highly motivated individual for an NIH-funded postdoctoral position to investigate cellular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity and dendritic physiology in brainstem sound localization circuits. The postdoctoral researcher will support projects under the leadership of Bradley Winters, Ph.D. using advanced neurophysiological and multiphoton imaging methods. This work utilizes in vitro brain slice preparations from mice and gerbils. Techniques used will include dendritic dual whole-cell patch-clamp, calcium imaging, and immunohistochemistry. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in a neuroscience-related field. Experience in electrophysiology and calcium imaging are desirable.

About Northeast Ohio Medical University
Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) is community-based interprofessional health sciences university located in Rootstown Ohio, a mostly rural community one hour southeast of Cleveland where cost of living is low and traffic jams are non-existent, but wide array of big city attractions just up the road. NEOMED has its own vibrant research community with six focus groups and has close ties with nearby Kent State University. The postdoctoral researcher would be part of the Hearing Research Group (HRG) within the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology. The HRG is highly interactive and has ten PIs working at all levels of the auditory system.
