The laboratory of Dr. Zachary Campbell is seeking candidates for postdoctoral training who are interested in fundamental neurobiological mechanisms of pain. These are questions we are actively pursuing:
- How do painful cues and/or analgesics alter protein abundance through transcriptional and translational mechanisms?
- What are the molecular mechanisms that drive persistent pain?
- What regulatory factors and downstream targets should we engage to diminish pain?
We make use of rodent models and human stem cell sensory neurons to probe these questions. Recognizing that a major goal of postdoctoral training is education, we seek candidates with familiarity with some but not all of the following approaches: cellular neurobiology, confocal imaging (ICC/IHC), high-throughput sequencing (bulk or single cell), cell culture, immunoblot assays, cloning, neuronal physiology, and/or behavioral neuropharmacology.
Candidates should have the following:
- PhD in neuroscience, cell biology, molecular biology, pharmacology, or a related field
- A track record of productivity as evidence by number and quality of publications
- Creative thinking skills and excellence in independent problem solving
- Ability to work collaboratively within the group
- Excellent oral and written communication skills
- Strong proficiency in the English language
- Innate source of curiosity and ability to assimilate concepts from the literature
- Enthusiasm to learn new methods and test new hypotheses
To apply send a copy of your CV with a brief (1 paragraph statement) of past research experiences and contact information for three references to Dr. Zachary Campbell firstname.lastname@example.org.
