The Neuroinflammation, Pain and Fatigue Laboratory, under the direction of Dr. Jarred Younger, is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to head scientific writing of several completed and ongoing human projects. The fellow will work closely with the Principal Investigator to produce manuscripts and grant applications, and will have the opportunity to assume first-author position on manuscripts.

While this position is available as a traditional postdoctoral fellowship, candidates with very strong communication skills can also be considered for a remote-work position based within the United States.

An advanced research or clinical degree is required for this position. Individuals may have a PhD in Psychology, Immunology, Pharmacology, or related fields. Individuals with an MD, DO, ND, or other advanced clinical degree are also eligible to apply. Applicants must have a demonstrated track record of being primary author on peer-reviewed scientific publications and must have excellent overall scientific writing skills. A background in inflammation, immunology, clinical trials, and human experimental research is helpful, but not required. 

The laboratory is funded through NIH, DoD, and non-profit sources. We focus on developing new diagnostic techniques and treatments for chronic pain and fatigue conditions. Our primary laboratory techniques include clinical trials of pharmaceutical and botanical treatments, observational analyses of inflammatory disease mediators, experimental immune provocations with endotoxin and other agents, and neuroimaging (MRI and PET). We emphasize the exploration of inflammatory and neuroinflammatory causes of chronic diseases such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

This is a full-time position with an initial appointment letter for one year with additional years contingent on satisfactory performance and available funding. The start date is negotiable, but would preferably occur in Fall of 2018.

To apply, please submit a cover letter and a CV to
