Description

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
NEUROBIOLOGY - REGENERATIVE MEDICINE: PAIN RESEARCH
Salary according to group TVöD E13

The position is available in a joint project of the Institute of Clinical Neurobiology and the Dept. of Anesthesiology at the University Hospital of Wuerzburg, Germany. The project is funded by the Interdisciplinary Center for Clinical Research Wuerzburg.

Our groups are interested in fundamental mechanisms of inflammatory pain, neuroimmune interactions and barrier function. Both laboratories provide a highly stimulating international scientific environment and cooperate with other experimental and clinical groups at the University of Wuerzburg. For further information, please visit https://www.wurzburg-neuroscience.de/ ) and ORCID (see below).

The project examines the cellular plasticity of glial cells and neurons in dorsal root ganglia after injury. The project will involve animal models of nerve/plexus injury including pain behaviour testing. We will use tissue clearing, high-resolution microscopy and in vivo as well as in vitro reprogramming of cells to find out whether it is possible to restore pain sensation after plexus injury.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and collaborative person with a strong interest in behavioural and molecular neurosciences expanding our teams. Experience in animal behaviour and surgery and neuroscience is of advantage. We encourage our Postdocs to participate in teaching of PhD and MD students within their project and in the project-associated programs. We actively support further career development.

Applicants are invited to send their curriculum vitae, list of publications, a statement of research interests and letters of recommendation by e-mail directly to Heike Rittner, ORCID: 0000-0003-4867-0188, MD (rittner_h@ukw.de) or Robert Blum, ORICD: 0000-0002-5270-38540, blum_r@ukw.de until 15th of Feb. 2019.
