Are you enthusiastic about basic human pain research? Come and join our team!

An interest in working with human experimental pain models or neurophysiological techniques to conduct research that will allow for a better understanding of human pain neuroplasticity is vital. CNAP is particularly interested in recruiting candidates with expertise in human experimental pain research methodologies to include advanced quantitative sensory testing or electrophysiological techniques (e.g. EEG, TMS, rTMS, HD-tDCS). 

A high proficiency in oral and written English is required (English is our working language).  Positions include an attractive 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 and living in Denmark at the homepage of Aalborg University’s International Staff Unit:
