The University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) is recruiting for a Research Associate to join our dynamic group of National Institutes of Health-funded pain researchers. Our group’s primary focus is on the role of neurotrophin signaling in the development and persistence of chronic pain. We also utilize transcriptomic and genetic/gnomic analyses to identify new candidate pathways that, when perturbed, reduce pain. Platforms currently in use include array-based technology as well as next-generation, high throughput sequencing of RNA and DNA. The successful candidate will be engaged in genetic, genomic and transcriptomics based approaches to chronic pain research using bioinformatics and wet bench techniques. Preferred skills include expertise in programming, scripting, and working in computing languages including R, Linux, Perl, others. Candidates must have a PhD in neuroscience, math, statistics or a related field, with at least 2 years of post-doctoral experience. The selected candidate will interact with faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, and PhD students who conduct basic and translational research in chronic pain and symptom science.
Applicants should submit a letter of interest, résumé, and the names of three professional references to:
Susan Dorsey, PhD, RN, FAAN
