All About You

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW

NIH-funded postdoctoral positions are available for highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to join the laboratory of Dr. Aubin Moutal, in the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology  at St Louis university to study novel proteins involved in chronic pain in the context of autoimmunity. Our work focuses on first identifying determinants of the transition from acute to chronic pain by reverse translating clinical findings to then perform a complete mechanistic characterization of how these new factors influence chronic vs physiological pain. The PI has a strong record of high impact papers with multiple recent publications in Science Translational Medicine, Pain, and PNAS. Through the active external collaborations with the New York University (Dr. Rajesh Khanna), the University of Arizona (Dr. Frank Porreca) and with the Institut neuromyogene in France the candidate will also grow an interest in ion channel regulation, central mechanisms of pain and paraneoplastic syndromes, respectively. 

Major techniques include immunohistochemistry, protein-protein interactions and protein biochemistry are employed to support findings from our behavioral and electrophysiological experiments. Applicants should have a strong background in molecular biology, IF, IHC, Western analysis, and enzyme assays; experience with phosphorylation, ubiquitination, and/or a mouse colony are pluses. Successful applicants will be highly motivated individuals with good communication skills, will have a proven publication record, and the ability to work independently. The applicants must currently have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Neuroscience or a related field. The appointment will be for 2 years with renewal up to 5 years and a competitive salary following NIH guidelines. Email a single PDF containing a CV, 1-2 pages summary of past research accomplishments, and contact information for three references to: aubinmoutal@gmail.com . All questions are welcome!

The Department of Pharmacology and Physiology, a vibrant multidisciplinary, highly collaborative and dynamic department, is also the home base of the Henry and Amelia Nasrallah Center for Neuroscience. Faculty members within the Department have expertise in several areas of pharmacology and physiology, with a particular emphasis in neuroscience and metabolism. The Department offers access to excellent core facilities and opportunities to join collaborative centers including the Liver Center, the Institute for Drug and Biotherapeutic Innovation, and the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences, and internal funding mechanisms for project support. Members of our community have access to the nationally-acclaimed Cortex Innovation Community, to multiple local startup-supporting institutions and to the fast-growing, cutting-edge medical and biotechnology community which operates actively throughout the St. Louis region.

Saint Louis University School of Medicine is a Catholic Jesuit Institution with a long tradition of excellence in teaching, research and patient care. Established in 1836, the school was the first to award a medical degree west of the Mississippi River. Saint Louis University School of Medicine is a leading center of research in neurodegenerative disorders, pain, cancer, infectious disease, liver disease, aging, and heart/lung disease. The Department of Pharmacology and Physiology maintains a strong record of extramural funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), including a T32 training grant.
