Postdoctoral positions:

A postdoctoral position is available for a trained electrophysiologist to study the cellular and molecular basis of thermosensation and pain. Candidates are expected to have a strong background in electrophysiological techniques and ion channel function, with the desire to expand upon these techniques into more in situ recordings. Future projects in the lab include, but are not limited to, the analysis of neuronal regulation as it pertains to chronic pain and circuit level analyses at the level of the sensory afferent and spinal cord.
