This project will be supervised by Dr Jonathan Gale and Dr Sally Dawson at the UCL Ear Institute. The stress granule response is a cellular mechanism that prevents damage during stress, we are using molecular and cell biology techniques to investigate the cochlear stress response. The overall aim of this project is to understand how stress granules regulate sensory cell survival in the cochlea and to provide novel therapeutic opportunities for preventing hearing loss. This research post (commencing June1st 2017) will require an individual with expertise in the auditory system, stress granule and RNA biology, cochlear organ culture, animal handling, genotyping, immuno-FISH along with experience of confocal microscopy and image analysis. The project is supported by the MRC and this full time Research Associate post is available for 4 months. Key Requirements The post holder will have obtained a PhD in the area of Auditory Science and have a strong interest in Auditory Biology. The successful candidate will have proven expertise in immunocytochemical methods along with confocal microscopy, having expertise of image analysis and quantification. Knowledge of auditory research function and testing; being able to prepare and present complex information to a wide range of audience is also desirable for this role.
