Post-Doctoral Research Worker
Applications are invited to join researchers on an MRC-funded experimental medicine challenge grant that aims to improve our understanding of mechanisms underpinning chronic pain states. The long-term goal is to be able to stratify individual patients according to their underlying pathophysiology.
The post holder(s) will join a team of researchers pioneering psychophysical and neuroimaging studies of experimental and clinical pain states taking place at the Wolfson Centre for Age-Related Diseases (Guy’s campus) and Department of Neuroimaging at Denmark Hill. The role will require the management and co-ordination of multiple studies, assisting in the design and development of novel experiments to understand underpinning acute pain experiences and how these mechanisms become perturbed in people suffering with chronic pain. He/she will be responsible for acquiring, managing and processing data, and will be expected to take an active role in data analysis, including pre-processing, physiological noise correction, mass univariate and multivariate data analysis techniques.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract to 31st December 2021. This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent. The selection process will include a panel interview.
