The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7.
Applications are invited for a Research Fellow to join the group of Dr Lorenzo Fabrizi and Dr Stephanie Koch in the Research Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology. The main purpose of the position is to produce independent, original contributions to the understanding of the development of cortical pain and somatosensory networks, using in vivo electrophysiological and behavioural techniques in laboratory rodents. The post holder will join a multidisciplinary team of human and animal neuroscientists, engineers and clinical investigators whose research focus is on the development of pain and somatosensory processing in the first days of life.
The research fellow will also learn to use cutting-edge technology (e.g. Neuropixel) and will provide guidance to less experienced members of the research group, including postdocs and project students. In addition to developing and conducting the research, the successful candidate will communicate results as scientific papers and in scientific presentations at local, national and international conferences. The post is funded by the Medical Research Foundation and is available for 18 months in the first instance.
PhD (or be studying towards it) in bioengineering, neurophysiology or relevant subject area and proven knowledge of research techniques and methodologies including systems neuroscience, in vivo electrophysiology and electrophysiological recording apparatus.
Please note: Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (Salary £32,217 - £33,958 per annum, including London Allowance) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis (including corrections).
