The laboratory of Dr. Simon Akerman in the Department of Neural and Pain Sciences at the University of Maryland Baltimore School of Dentistry is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow to lead a project funded by a DoD grant, to study a novel target to treat migraine headache. The Akerman laboratory investigates neurophysiological and molecular mechanisms in headache and other related trigeminal pain disorders, using a multidisciplinary approach in rodent models. The successful applicant will join a rich and collaborative pain research environment that includes weekly pain-focused journal clubs, pain seminars, and further opportunities that foster career development for trainees.

The candidate is expected to be highly motivated, completed (or about to complete) a PhD or MD in neuroscience or a related discipline, with a record of publications in this area. A background in pain/headache is desired, preclinical experience is essential, and expertise in in vivo electrophysiology, rodent microsurgeries, or behavioral nociceptive measurements would be a strong advantage. The candidate will be encouraged to present at local and national scientific conferences and therefore needs to have excellent oral and written communication skills. The candidate needs to be self-motivated, and able to work independently and as part of a team.

Qualifications :

The postdoc candidate will be offered competitive salary and fringe benefits as per University of Maryland policy and NIH guidelines.

Interested candidates should submit a statement of research experience and interests with a CV including contact information for three references to Dr. Simon Akerman ( ).
