Open Phd and Postdoc positions available to study Neural Circuits of Pain, Heidelberg, Germany
Application deadline: Please check the deadline of individual positions on the consortium website
The Heidelberg Pain Consortium (SFB 1158) ‘From nociception to chronic pain: Structure-function properties of neural pathways and their reorganisation’ was established in Heidelberg, Germany in July 2015. Twenty multidisciplinary projects involving forty one groups spanning diverse top-class clinical and basic research institutions make this a remarkably vibrant and comprehensive collaborative centre.
Research in this collaborative research centre (CRC) promises to deliver a structural and functional understanding of circuits and networks underlying sensory and affective components of pain and their modulation by circumstances which induce structural reorganization and functional plasticity, including disease states, negative emotions and stress. A mechanistic analysis of chronic neuropathic pain of peripheral and central origin in rodent models and in human patients, serving as a basis for therapeutic interventions, will be a strong focus. Particularly, the next 4 years will be focused on developing therapeutic interventions in clinical and preclinical contexts
In this consortium, we serve the academic colleagues by supporting initiatives that are of strategic importance for the research and development of the CRC. We are strongly committed to support the young researchers at an early career stage via mentoring, developing their soft-skills, providing a networking environment and financial aid for the exchange and development of ideas. We facilitate internationalization of young researchers by actively connecting them with acclaimed international scientists around the world. We strongly believe in equity and diversity in research environment and promoting work-life balance of our scientists.
