Qualification Details

To be qualified to take employment as postdoc, you must have been awarded a doctoral degree or have a foreign degree that is deemed to be equivalent to a doctoral degree.  This degree must have been awarded at the latest by the point at which LiU makes its decision to employ you.

It is considered advantageous if your doctoral degree is no older than three years at application deadline for this job. If there are special reasons for having an older doctoral degree – such as taking statutory leave – then these may be taken into consideration.

We are looking for someone with a Ph.D. in neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, or a related discipline, strong quantitative skills, a reasonable track record, and an enthusiastic approach to science.

The applicant is expected to have strong background knowledge of the physiology of primary sensory afferents and peripheral mechanisms of nociception. The applicant must have proficiency in electrophysiological recordings from single primary afferent fibers (units) in humans using microneurography, and experience in the study of myelinated nociceptive signaling in humans. Experience in psychophysical techniques to study pain in humans is of particular merit.

The applicant is expected to be fluent in both written and spoken English.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The successful candidate will work in a translational somatosensory laboratory at the Center for Social and Affective Neuroscience, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.

Work assignments include:

  • Design, acquisition, and analysis of data from single-unit afferent recordings using microneurography.
  • Design, acquisition, and analysis of data from psychophysical experiments on touch and pain.

As postdoc, you will principally carry out research. A certain amount of teaching may be part of your duties, up to a maximum of 20% of working hours.
