Post-Doctoral Position in Pain Biology – SUNY-Buffalo

The Bhattacharjee Lab is searching for a postdoc to study basic pain mechanisms. The long-term objectives of our lab are to study and understand the plasticity of pain-sensing dorsal root ganglion neurons. We are especially interested in ion channel trafficking and identifying key protein interactions that are involved in this process. We believe that novel analgesics can be developed through an understanding of how ion channels are scaffolded at the membrane and how chaperones control the movement of these channels in and out of the membrane. Approaches include electrophysiology, neuronal isolation, molecular and biochemical techniques, and pain behavior. We are also seeking ways to develop intellectual property.

Work will extend our recent recent findings:
