Postdoctoral fellowships are available in the Human Brain Function Lab of Dr. Chang-Chia Liu, in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Virginia School of Medicine.  Applicants must hold a PhD or MD and appropriate pain and/or somatosensory research experience.  The ideal candidate will have a strong track record of research success, bringing a specific focus in pain-related research or research in any fundamentally important area of pain neurophysiology.  This is a tremendous opportunity to join a well-resourced lab with growing strength in research into fundamental brain mechanisms of pain.  Several unique neurophysiology and neuroimaging studies of pain involving the use of intracranial LFPs, Scalp EEG, MRI, fMRI, and/or simultaneous EEG-fMRI in humans and animals are ongoing in the lab.  We are seeking 2-3 highly motivated candidates with experience in electrophysiology neuroimaging data collection and neurophysiologic signal analysis, quantitative sensory testing (QST), and/or multivariate statistical analysis for the studies in the lab.

  1. Ph.D., MD/Ph.D. or MD in a relevant field required.
  2. Candidates with a demonstrated record of high-level publications will be preferred.
  3. Seeking candidates that have strong social, and leadership skills
