A postdoctoral position to study the mechanisms of pain after spinal cord injury is available in the laboratory of Dr. Armin Blesch in the Department of Neurosciences. This project investigates the role of neuronal activity in the development of pain and the role of toll-like receptors in mouse models of spinal cord injury. Candidates should be highly motivated, able to perform self-directed work, possess excellent collaborative skills and demonstrated experience in oral and written communication. Strong candidates for this position will have an MD and/or PhD degree with a track record of academic accomplishment. Background in one of the following is desirable: animal models of spinal cord injury, behavioral pain testing, in vivo imaging, electrophysiology of slice cultures, and mechanisms of pain. Competitive salary commensurate with experience.
Applicants should submit a cover letter indicating their area of interest, complete curriculum vitae and addresses of three references in a single PDF document to: email@example.com
