Postdoctorate Fellow - Pain genetics
The Human Pain Genetics lab, a part of the Alan Edwards Centre for Research on Pain at McGill University, is a multi-disciplinary team that investigates the psychological, molecular, cellular and genetic pathways that mediate both acute and persistent pain states. Our primary goal is to identify critical elements of human genetic variability contributing to pain sensitivity and pathophysiological pain states that will enable individualized treatments and therapies. We are currently looking for a postdoctorate fellow to join our diverse team to curry out the experiments aiming to study genetic mechanisms of the immune system’s contribution to pain state development and persistence. Under the supervision of Dr. Diatchenko and Dr. Mogil the fellow will:
Design and execute experiments to study the functional molecular biology of pain-relevant genes and pathways, including measuring transcript and protein expression, in vitro cellular functionality assays, and animal behavioral experiments.
Participate in discussions, planning, execution, and evaluation of animal experiments aimed to validate the results of in vitro-experiments together with other members of collaborating laboratories
Report research results and developments at laboratory meetings, scientific conferences, and in peer-reviewed scientific publications
Communicate research in scientific conferences
