The Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has an opening for Postdoctoral Research Fellow position. The laboratory of molecular genetics is focused on elucidating the mechanisms of hearing loss resulting from mutations in deafness causing genes. The goal of Dr Raizuddin's research is to identify disease causing genes for inherited hearing loss and develop orthologue mouse models to completely understand its function in inner ear. The laboratory has identified and biologically characterized several genes important for normal hearing in both human and mice.
Details about project areas can be found at: http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/bio/r/saima-riazuddin,/
Candidates with a strong background in genetics, and molecular cell biology are encouraged to apply. Experience in mouse inner ear evaluation including in situ, immunohistochemistry on whole mounts and frozen sections of inner ear, confocal microscopy, auditory and vestibular electrophysiology is desirable but not required.
Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Institution. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
