The Munnamalai Lab (https://www.jax.org/research-and-faculty/research-labs/the-munnamalai-lab) at The Jackson Laboratory is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to study inner ear development. Our group identifies gene networks downstream of signaling pathways that are involved in the patterning and development of the inner ear. The inner ear is part of the peripheral nervous system. It is divided into the vestibular system that regulates balance and motion and the cochlea that regulates hearing. The cochlea has a very complex organization and we are interested in determining how a field of progenitors, under the influence of multiple signaling pathways, becomes a patterned organ with hair cells. The hair cells are mechanosensory cells of the inner ear.   The successful candidate will use molecular biology and genomic approaches to study gene regulation and cell fate determination. Applicants are not required to have experience working with mouse models; however, a strong command of molecular biology techniques is required. The postdoc will learn to use in vitro organotypic cultures, in utero electroporation, and mouse genetics to study signaling and gene regulation. The research projects involve the generation of transgenic mouse lines; generation and maintenance of mouse models of inner ear development; and characterization of molecular and cellular phenotypes of genetic mutants.   The Jackson Laboratory has a world class postdoctoral training program. Trainees are encouraged to develop an independent research program using a broad array of resources and expertise available at JAX (https://www.jax.org/research-and-faculty/tools/scientific-research-services).   Exceptional postdoctoral candidates will have the opportunity to apply to become a JAX Scholar, a selective award addressing the national need for research scientists who are accomplished in the broadly defined fields of genetics and genomics. The award includes an independent research budget, travel funds, and a salary above standard postdoctoral scale (https://www.jax.org/education-and-learning/pre-and-postdoctoral-program/jax-scholars).   Only complete applications will be considered.  Please see submission requirements below.
