Job Description / Duties

A funded postdoctoral research position is available for highly motivated candidates in the Department of Anesthesiology at Queen’s University, to study cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying interactions between the nervous, immune, and circadian systems in acute and chronic pain. Outstanding candidates will have a background in pain physiology, neuroimmunology, and/or circadian biology. Our projects span both clinical (human) and preclinical (murine) studies, and will use a wide spectrum of approaches, including immunology, molecular biology, genetically-modified mouse models, and behavior tests.
