You will be joining a multidisciplinary research community at the Wolfson Centre for Age-Related Diseases, where your research will benefit from the input of many friendly colleagues and the joint supervision of two investigators who combine the best of two worlds: advice and inspiration from one of the pre-eminent leaders in pain research and practical day-to-day guidance on research techniques from a junior PI.
