Postdoctoral Opportunities

Postdoc opportunity in the Binshtok lab: “Pain-mediated normal plasticity”

A postdoctoral position is available in the field of peripheral and central mechanisms of pain, under the supervision of Dr. Alex Binshtok.

The main raison d’être of Dr. Binshtok’s lab is to study the changes along nervous system leading to chronic pain, using a variety of electrophysiological, histological, and in-vivo and in-vitro imaging approaches to follow the noxious signals. Dr. Binshtok’s studies span from the peripheral level to the cerebral cortex. The candidate will join a project whose aim are (1) identifying selective groups of cortical neurons activated and modulated by noxious stimulation, and (2) studying plastic changes in peripheral and central neurons underlying chronic pain.


Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in neurobiology or a related discipline (e.g., physics, chemistry, computer sciences) and should be experienced in imaging and electrophysiology (experience in in-vivo approaches is an advantage).

Candidates must be proficient in English.
