The University of Iowa Gene and Cell Therapy Program for Auditory Disorders is centered on the development of novel gene and cell therapies for the treatment of auditory disorders. This program emphasizes both basic and translational research into the biology of the inner ear, under normal conditions as well as in the context of disease. A major goal will be to identify molecular pathways that can be manipulated to either preserve or restore hearing function in humans. The program is divided into the following lines of research: 1)Development of novel viral vectors for cell-type specific transduction and gene expression in the inner ear 2)Delineation of the regulatory networks that govern development of the inner ear, and the application of this information to the development of stem-cell therapies 3)Elucidation of neuroinflammatory mechanisms that contribute to the pathogenesis underlying inner ear disease This program will continue to build upon the University of Iowa’s longstanding strength in hearing research, which is led by the Department of Otolaryngology (ranked 6th in the nation in 2019-2020 by U.S. News and World Report) and synergizes within the auditory neuroscience community of the Iowa Neuroscience Institute, the Department of Neurosurgery, and the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.

DescriptionInner ear cell biology Post-Doctoral Positions – Ahmed LaboratoryUniversity of Maryland School of MedicineTwo postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Zubair Ahmed in the departments of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and Ophthalmology.Our mission: Usher syndrome (USH) is the leading cause of inherited deaf-blindness. Type 1 is the most severe, with affected children born profoundly deaf with an impaired vestibular system, resulting in late gross motor milestones and poor balance. These children also have retinitis pigmentosa with symptoms that develop as early as their toddler years, with night blindness followed by increasingly narrow tunnel vision progressing to total blindness during adulthood. To date, no therapy is available to preserve vision in USH subjects. We use a broad range of techniques from human genetics, viral-mediated gene delivery, neurophysiological and molecular studies in vivo and in vitro, using tissue culture, mouse models, and zebrafish. Our ultimate goal is to develop new treatments for genetic and acquired hearing and vision loss. Job description: Full-time postdoctoral position leading projects related to the translational approaches to reduce/ improve hearing loss in novel USH transgenic mouse models; characterization of inner ear function, morphology and Usher syndrome proteins in mouse and zebrafish models. These projects will require knowledge/additional training in the inner ear biology, cell biology, confocal microscopy, and gene delivery amongst other techniques. Ideal candidates are highly motivated graduates of a PhD program in cellular or molecular biology, with some experience in working with animal models, ideally characterizing hearing disorders. Experience in inner ear biology, functional analysis, and a strong publication record are helpful. Environment: The laboratory is part of the departments of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery and Ophthalmology, and we are affiliated also with the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The lab is housed in a newly build large open space at the University of Maryland – HSFIII, in a highly collaborative fashion. The University has state of the art confocal, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, proteomics, flow cytometry and immunology, animal and sequencing facilities. We have the skills and expertise to perform in-depth functional analyses of vision, auditory, and vestibular dysfunction in mouse and zebrafish. The team consists of undergraduates, graduate students, post docs, residents and surgeons working together on basic science and translational studies. Benefits: Stipend follows the NIH recommended guidelines and full health benefits. Standardized leave – 10 days annual leave, 15 days sick leave, 3 days personal leave and ~15 days holiday leave (determined annually by the university). Postdocs will ideally participate and present in one annual meeting a year, as determined by the PI, contingent on productivity. The postdoctoral appointments are renewed on an annual basis contingent on performance and available funding.

Description:  Applications are invited to fill a Post-doctoral position in the Auditory and Communication Systems Laboratory in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology at the University of Pennsylvania (PI Steven Eliades). The laboratory focuses on sensory coding in the auditory system during both perception and vocal production, with primary efforts in marmoset monkeys. We have particular interest in auditory coding in naturalistic environments and interactive social behaviors. Marmosets are an increasingly popular model system in neuroscience, with the advantage of being a non-human primate, readily used in a variety of neuroscience and behavioral contexts, but with the potential to take advantage of modern genetic and optical techniques. We also collaborate with other clinicians in the department to apply these methods to understanding hearing and speech in patients with communication disorders (hearing loss, vocal disorders). The work combines auditory psychophysics, speech sciences, motor control, sensory coding, and ensemble neural recordings. Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent degree) related to neuroscience, engineering, physics, psychology, or a similar field. Preferred candidates have a background in animal behavior and/or neural recording. The intellectual environment of the University of Pennsylvania is outstanding for computational auditory neuroscience. The Hearing Sciences Center is a multi-investigator group that identifies neuronal correlates of hearing and communication at multiple scales of interrogation, using state-of-the-art computational and causal techniques. We collaborate with the Penn Computational Neuroscience Initiative, a center with faculty interested in systems and computational approaches to neuroscience, and the Penn Center for Neuroscience and Therapeutics, interested in translating neuroscience into clinical care. Candidates will have access and mentorship from faculty in the Hearing Sciences Center and inter-disciplinary faculty throughout the institution. Appointment will be for 12-months, renewable annually. Salary will be commensurate with experience and consistent with NIH NRSA stipends. We anticipate a Fall 2019 start date.
