Ricci Lab The Ricci Lab continues to investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms of hearing. We have long-standing interests in hair cell mechanotransduction, characterizing the molecules involved, developing technologies to investigate hair bundle mechanics and the role of the membrane in force translation. In addition, we are investigating sensory cell afferent fiber communication using genetically encoded sensors as well as in vivo imaging techniques.
Senior Research Scientist
We are recruiting an experienced scientist interested in driving an independent research project(s) while also providing lab support administratively and for training junior scientists. We are looking for a candidate with experience in inner ear physiology, molecular biology/genetics, optics or immunocytochemistry. Ideal candidate will be a team player who works well collaboratively, is interested in teaching and in developing new technology as well as have some administrative responsibilities. Research projects will be jointly decided between PI and investigator.
