The Kolber Lab in the Department of Biological Sciences and Chronic Pain Research Consortium at Duquesne University (Pittsburgh, PA) is soliciting applications for a full-time NIH funded postdoctoral fellow with training in electrophysiology (extracellular recording or related), behavior, optogenetics, and physiology. We are interested in studying the physiology that drives brain lateralization in visceral bladder pain and dissecting the pain neurocircuitry in the amygdala.
The laboratory combines a variety of state-of-the-art approaches to investigate complex system level questions related to the integration of pain and stress in mice and the application of those findings in human studies.
Duquesne is a medium-sized research university located adjacent to downtown Pittsburgh. A strong neuroscience and pain group provides opportunities for cross-disciplinary research and for additional post-doctoral training outside of the lab (e.g. mentoring, administration, education and teaching). The larger Pittsburgh community includes world class researchers at a number of collaborative institutions.
Candidates must have a PhD in neuroscience, pharmacology, biology, physiology or an equivalent field. Additional requirements include excellent interpersonal skills; excellent oral and written communication skills; strength in team building;a commitment to development of and scholarly participation inpain and stress research programs at Duquesne and in the greater Pittsburgh area.
