Job Details

CNAP is a basic research Center of Excellence established by the Danish National Research Foundation at SMI® - Department of Health Science and Technology, Faculty of Medicine, Aalborg University, Denmark.


CNAP offers: A Post-Doc position to explore neuroplasticity to explore novel neuromodulation paradigms in animal models of acute or chronic pain conditions. The position includes a competitive salary including health insurance, experimental running costs, and well-equipped office and laboratory facilities. The CNAP PhD/Post-Doc will join an inspiring, enriching, and productive cross-disciplinary research center including staff with internationally recognized track records. Approximately 50% of CNAP staff originates from outside Denmark. CNAP recruits highly qualified and committed candidates worldwide who demonstrate great research potential. CNAP provides assistance to relocate to Aalborg, Denmark.

CNAP background: When an injury results in acute pain, the nervous system undergoes an adaptive neuroplastic response resulting in an increase in sensitivity. This adaptive response is thought to help protect the body from further injury. However, pain that continues after an injury has resolved may be due to maladaptive neuroplasticity. In contrast, other types of neuroplasticity enable the nervous system to cope with challenges such as maladaptive pain neuroplasticity to help returning to a pain-free state. The scope of CNAP is to apply advanced biomedical provocation and probing platforms to study basic and novel aspects of human neuroplasticity in response to pain. The aim is likewise to explore parallel neuroplasticity between pain and itch pathways.

CNAP requests: The candidate for a CNAP Post-Doc holds a PhD degree within the field of biomedical engineering or neural engineering with the prospect to develop and test new medical technologies for modulating neuroplasticity in chronic pain.Neuromodulatory electrical stimuli have been proposed for the treatment of various common chronic pain conditions. The researchwould evaluate novel neuromodulation paradigms in animal models of acute or chronic pain to investigate if maladaptive neuroplastic changes associated with animal models of chronic pain can be reversed. Therefore, applicants should preferably have experience with acquisition, processing and interpretation of different types of biological signals, and you must have experience with animal research. A high proficiency in oral and written English is required. Good dissemination skills are important.
