The Laboratory of Molecular Pathogenetics at Institute of Biotechnology Czech Academy of Sciences is seeking a highly motivated PhD student for this project: Transcription regulatory networks in neurosensory development

Our goal is to understand the molecular interactions necessary for the early neurosensory development of the inner ear to use this knowledge as a basis for new therapeutic strategies.

The methods used will include knockouts using Cre/loxP and Crispr/Cas9 technologies, global gene expression analyses (RNAseq), immunohistochemistry, and confocal microscopy.

This project will contribute to the molecular analyses of the requirements for transcription factors regulating morphogenesis and cell specification during embryonic development and their requirements for the function and regeneration of neurons and sensory cells.
