Full Time - Experienced
Academic / Research
Exciting opportunity for a motivated postdoctoral associate to join the Seal lab studying spinal pain circuits and developing novel viral therapies based on your discoveries.
The successful candidate will perform patch clamp electrophysiology with channelrhodopsin stimulation and viral monosynaptic tracing to identify connectivity to major dorsal horn pain circuits. The candidate will use the findings to design adeno-associated viruses as novel pain therapeutics for testing in non-human primates.
The laboratory is in the Department of Neurobiology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and is affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute, the Pittsburgh Center for Pain Research, and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition. The successful candidate will have many opportunities to interact with faculty, postdocs and graduate students within these associated groups and across the university as well as at local and international scientific meetings.
As a member of the Seal laboratory, you will be part of a culture that values hard work, intellectual curiosity, creativity, innovative thinking and teamwork, thus making it a wonderful place to grow and develop professionally.
