Are you passionate about basic human pain research? – short and long-term postdoctoral positions in Europe
CNAP (Center for Neuroplasticity and Pain) at Aalborg University in Denmark, is looking to recruit committed candidates who demonstrate great research potential and are interested in working with human experimental pain models and/or neurophysiological techniques to conduct research that will allow for a better understanding of human pain neuroplasticity. CNAP is particularly interested in recruiting individuals with expertise in human experimental pain research methodologies that include advanced quantitative sensory testing and/or electrophysiological techniques (e.g. EEG, TMS, rTMS, HD-tDCS). The perspective is to apply prolonged pain models (days) and evaluate the temporal psychophysical or electrophysiological changes. There are also options for studying the interaction of pain and itch modalities.
Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent) in neuroscience, pharmacology, biomedical engineering, medicine or a related field. A high proficiency in oral and written English is also required, as English is our working language. Positions include a competitive salary with health insurance, experimental running costs, a well-equipped office and laboratory facilities. CNAP also provides assistance to relocate to Aalborg, Denmark. Please find more information about working at Aalborg University, living in Denmark etc. at the homepage of Aalborg University’s International Staff Unit: www.isu.aau.dk.
About CNAP: CNAP is a basic research Center of Excellence established by the Danish National Research Foundation at Aalborg University, Denmark. CNAP applies a basic research approach to study novel aspects of the human pain neuroplasticity. CNAP is an international research center with approximately 60% of its staff from outside of Denmark.
