Center for Neuroplasticity and Pain (CNAP)

Are you enthusiastic about basic human pain research? short- and long-term postdoctoral positions at CNAP

CNAP is looking for committed candidates who demonstrate great research potential. 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). Application of prolonged pain models (days), evaluation of temporal psychophysical and/or electrophysiological changes, and an option to study the interaction of pain and itch modalities are all on offer.

Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent) in neuroscience, pharmacology, biomedical engineering, medicine or a related field and may seek their first or subsequent postdoctoral position. 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, living in Denmark etc. at the homepage of Aalborg University’s International Staff Unit:  www.isu.aau.dk
