The Creed Lab in the Washington University Pain Center in the department of Anesthesiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate. The goal of the lab is to determine synaptic and circuit plasticity underlying negative affect in chronic pain, mood and substance use disorders, and to develop novel neuromodulation therapies for these disorders.  To this end, we use in vivo and patch clamp electrophysiology combined with optogenetic manipulations and in vivo biosensors, behavioral assays and molecular biology techniques. (7.1.2019)

The group of Henri Huttunen and Riikka-Liisa Uronen is seeking a motivated postdoctoral researcher for an Alzheimer’s disease project at the University of Helsinki Neuroscience Center, located in Biomedicum. Our lab specializes in cellular and molecular mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease, developing new technologies to understand these processes. (7.1.2019)

A postdoctoral position in neuroscience is available immediately at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Medicine in the laboratory of Kurt F. Hauser.  The candidate will study fundamental mechanisms underlying glial dysfunction and synaptodendritic injury in the striatum and hippocampus following opioid and HIV exposure. (8.1.2019)

The Hohmann laboratory in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and Gill Center for Biomolecular Science at Indiana University is seeking multiple postdoctoral research fellows to work at the interface between drug addiction and chronic pain. We are investigating the impact of cannabinoids, including functionally biased cannabinoid CB2 agonists, on opioid reward using drug self-administration, in vivo voltammetry and conditioned place preference. (8.1.2019)

A post-doctoral position in the Pravetoni lab at the University of Minnesota Medical School is available immediately for individuals interested in development of immunotherapies to reduce opioid use disorders and opioid-related overdoses. Our unique multidisciplinary research program integrates rational vaccine design, immunomodulators, formulation/delivery platforms, pre-clinical models, analysis of B and T cell lymphocyte repertoire, GLP/GMP studies to support regulatory approval and clinical evaluation, and ad hoc industry collaborations. (9.1.2018)

A postdoctoral position is currently available in Leslie Sombers' Lab at NCSU on projects related to monitoring endogenous opioid neuropeptides in live brain tissue using fast-scan cyclic voltammetry, microdialysis, and HPLC-MS. The project(s) will integrate multidisciplinary approaches including electrochemistry, optogenetic and chemogenetic manipulation, and behavioral analyses. Deadline for applications is January 17, 2019.

PhD position in Medical Molecular biology at Lund University, Sweden. Project focusing on the role of microRNAs in prostate cancer metastases. Last application date January 25, 2019 11:59 PM CET.

Postdoc and PhD student positions in cell biology / neurobiology / biochemistry at the University of Helsinki. The Cellular Individuality group led by Assistant Professor Juha Saarikangas is now searching for talented Postdoctoral researchers and PhD students. Our newly established and well-funded team investigates how global changes in protein folding and assembly states give rise to spatially organized and adaptive biochemistries in cells. The positions are open until January 31, 2019, or until suitable candidates are found.

Postdoctoral researcher or project researcher to study new regulators of the immune system through single-cell omics in Molecular Systems Immunology Group, led by Riitta Lahesmaa, at Turku Centre for Biotechnology. Molecular Systems Immunology group aims at understanding the regulation of human immune system to predict, prevent and treat immune mediated disorders. We study epigenetic and transcriptional regulation of T cells and molecular mechanisms of immune mediated diseases. Deadline for applications is January 31, 2019.

A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the MiToLab-UGR in the Biomedical Research Center of the PTS Granada. The postdoc will be involved in a MDA-funded project focuses in the evaluation of new pharmacological treatments for mitochondrial diseases, using cellular and animals models for that purpose. The focus of the work will be a combination of approaches, including cell culture, animal phenotyping, in vivo analysis, histopathology, mitochondrial biology and omics technologies. Deadline for applications February 1, 2019.

We are looking for a postdoc or project researcher in Biostatistics as part of our multidisciplinary and international team of experts in the Computational Biomedicine group at the Medical Bioinformatics Centre, Turku Centre for Biotechnology. The applications should be submitted at the latest on February 4, 2019.
