Postdoctoral Fellow – Developmental
Deans Laboratory, Department of
Neurobiology & Anatomy, University of Utah
We are recruiting motivated and talented postdoctoral
fellows to fill NIH-funded research positions in the Deans laboratory at the
University of Utah. Our lab focuses on
the contribution of Planar Cell Polarity (PCP) signaling towards multiple
aspects of Inner Ear development in the mouse.
We apply basic developmental biology, mouse genetics, and biochemical
approaches to uncover key aspects of sensory hair cell differentiation and
innervation. One of the following
research projects could be yours: (i) transcriptional regulation of hair cell
development and polarization, (ii) PCP signaling and axon guidance during
cochlear innervation, or (iii) mechanisms of tissue patterning that guide planar
We are located
in a highly dynamic research environment hosted by the Department of
Neurobiology & Anatomy and share close ties with the Division of
Otolaryngology. In addition, Utah
provides unparalleled lifestyle and outdoor recreation opportunities for a
superior work/life balance. Candidates should carry a PhD in the areas of developmental biology
or neurobiology. Emphasis will be given to candidates with
expertise in nervous system development though researchers using other
developmental systems are encouraged to apply.
Initial terms of appointment are for one year, with the expectation
of renewal based on satisfactory performance and funding. Salary will be commensurate with prior research experience and NIH guides.
For consideration send a CV and list of references to
Michael Deans, PhD ( ).
