Research Assistant Positions: Cryo-Electron Microscopy and Mechanotransduction Complex of the Inner Ear

Research Assistant Positions: Cryo-Electron Microscopy and Mechanotransduction Complex of the Inner Ear
Professor David Corey, Medical School


Within the inner ear are fast, sensitive receptor cells, working on a scale of microseconds and nanometers to convert the mechanical stimulus of sound into electrical signals that the brain can understand. In recent years, this process has become better understood, as many proteins involved in the submicroscopic mechanotransduction complex have been identified....
