Applications are invited for a full-time PhD student to develop a thesis under the research topic: Effects of noise on hearing and development in the zebrafish Danio rerio.
Description: The student will rely on the zebrafish model to investigate the impact of noise exposure on development of the inner ear, auditory sensitivity and behavioral traits. The project implies the use of a variety of research methods, such as electrophysiology recordings, immunohistochemistry, imaging and gene expression techniques (qPCR, transcriptomics).
Research activities will take place mostly at the USJ science laboratories (Macao), but availability to work in other labs abroad (USA and/or Portugal) is necessary. The candidate will be supervised mostly by the project coordinator, Prof. Raquel Vasconcelos (USJ), and eventually by the team member Prof. Andrew Bass (Cornell University, USA).
The PhD student is expected to develop research, write a thesis and publish data in international peer-reviewed scientific journals, as well as, to participate in general lab management tasks.
