Biophysics of mechanotransduction by hair cells

   Department of Bioengineering

   Wednesday, May 15, 2024  Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

The laboratory of Auditory Neuroscience and Biophysics ( led by Dr Andriy Kozlov at the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, invites applications for a fully funded PhD position, starting in October 2023 or soon thereafter. The overall aim of the project is to test experimentally predictions of the two-channel cooperative model of hair-cell mechanotransduction (Gianoli et al., PNAS, 2017).

The project will rely on cutting-edge optical methods; therefore, the successful candidate should have some training and experience in the field of optical engineering or a closely related field. For informal inquiries please contact Dr Andriy Kozlov.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

Expected start date: Until the position is filled

Funding notes:

This is a funded position for UK and international students for 3.5 years at the UKRI rate.


Hearing, mechanotransduction, hair cells, ion channels, interferometry, electrophysiology.
