Sensitivity control in the cochlea

Department of Neuroscience, Erasmus MC, University Medical Center Rotterdam, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

A PhD position is available in the Department of Neuroscience of the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to study the mechanics of the inner ear. In this project you will use in vivo interferometry to measure sound-evoked vibrations in the inner ear of rodents. The goal is to understand how the inner ear is able to rapidly adjust its sensitivity to the intensity of natural sounds
