Undergraduate Laboratory Assistant | Department of Otolaryngology | Johns Hopkins University

The Lauer lab (East Baltimore campus) is looking for undergraduates to assist with studies of how the brain is affected by hearing loss, and how top-down and neuromodulatory systems affect hearing and hearing dysfunction. Students will have the opportunity to participate in studies of hearing disorders in rodent and non-rodent models for research credits. Student will learn about good research practices, analyze data, and conduct some experimental procedures.

Currently, we are looking for students to perform quantitative analysis of rodent and bat ear and brain specimens or to analyze social and exploratory behaviors in mice with hearing dysfunction and/or serotonergic dysregulation. Students should be prepared with basic knowledge of neuron structure and function and an enthusiasm for neurosensory research.
