Multiple funded postdoctoral positions are available in the Washington University Pain Center (WUPC) in the Department of Anesthesiology. WUPC labs study the neurobiological basis and treatment of pain syndromes and co-morbidities.

This ensures that projects are highly collaborative and that post-doctoral fellows are integrated into the broader WashU community. Post-docs will have access to world-class core facilities for in vivo and ex vivo imaging, viral vector design and production, transgenic mouse creation, genetic sequencing and analysis, behavioral analysis, and in vivo optogenetic modulation of neural circuits, as well as state-of-the-art clinical research facilities.
St. Louis offers an affordable quality of life and a supportive, dynamic post-doc community. Starting salaries and benefits package are competitive.
