The Pain Research Program in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham announces an open position for a postdoctoral research fellow in Dr. Jianguo Gu’s Pain Research Laboratory. We are seeking an ambitious and motivated postdoctoral candidate who is interested in research into cellular and molecular aspects of sensory physiology and pain. We are specifically focused on ion channels and their functions in sensory transduction, conduction and transmission under both physiological and pathological conditions (see Ikeda et al., Cell. 2014, 157: 664-675; Kanda et al., Neuron. 2019, 104:960-971). We employ multi-disciplinary approaches including electrophysiology, immunohistochemistry, molecular biology, and animal behavioral assessment to conduct pain research. Qualified candidates with a PhD degree in biomedical field and experience in research on neuroscience and/or electrophysiology will be given top priority. The postdoc candidate will be offered a competitive salary plus fringe benefits as per University of Alabama at Birmingham policy and NIH guidelines. Interested candidates should submit a single document containing updated CV, brief personal statement describing research interests and career goals, and contact information for three references. Please directly email the document to Dr. Jianguo Gu at jianguogu@uabmc.edu.
