NEUROSCIENTIST: VALIDATION OF MOLECULAR TARGETS TO TREAT NEUROPATHIC PAIN. The laboratory of Arin Bhattacharjee at SUNY-BUFFALO in the Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology has a postdoctoral training opportunity available to study mechanisms of chronic pain. This project, supported by the NIH HEAL Initiative, seeks to identify and validate novel molecular targets to treat neuropathic pain. The research project will utilize a combination of electrophysiological, biochemical, molecular and pain behavioral approach to understand how key scaffold proteins regulate ion channel activity during nerve injury. PhD with research experience in the handling and use of animals, small rodent surgical methods and histological techniques (e.g. immunohistochemistry) are highly preferred. Experience and/or an interest in electrophysiological methods and experience in would be an advantage. This is a superb opportunity to work collaboratively with molecular and cellular neurobiologists, as a member of the large, vibrant SUNY-BUFFALO Neuroscience Program. Successful candidate will also have the opportunity to present work at local and national scientific meetings (e.g. Society for Neuroscience). Highly motived candidates with a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology, Physiology or related field within the past 0-2 years as well as enthusiasm for high quality science and good communication skills are encouraged to apply. Please send your CV and brief description of your career goals and research experience to firstname.lastname@example.org. Women and members of underrepresented minority groups are encouraged to apply. Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Doctoral degree and substantive experience in animal handling are essential.
PhD in Neuroscience, Psychology, Physiology, Pharmacology or related discipline
