Applications are sought for a position to study structure/function
relationships in the cricket auditory system. The project will use a
number of approaches, including intracellular recording and
staining, confocal microscopy, immunoelectron microscopy, and
compartmental modeling to learn how information about sound
frequency is represented by auditory receptors and interneurons.
Applicants should have experience with intracellular techniques,
preferably in insects. Additionally, experience with either or both
electron microscopy and computer programming is desirable. The
position is available as of August 1, and is funded for three years.
