Author: USAISR | Category: Career Development | May 09, 2016

Pain, burn injury, regeneration, and hemorrhage researchers at the United States Army Institute of Surgical Research (USAISR) are seeking candidates for postdoctoral positions. 

Qualified candidates must be highly motivated, independent individuals with a Ph.D. in physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience, or a related field. Preference will be given to U.S. citizens and Veterans. 

Candidates must have exceptional laboratory and written communication skills and the ability to work both independently and cooperatively within a team. 

Experience with large and small animal surgery, rodent behavior, tissue culture, histology and molecular biological techniques are essential. 

The successful candidate will be joining a research program that focuses on the treatment of acute pain following burn injuries and other trauma, as well as the treatment of chronic pain conditions to improve patient outcomes. Emphasis is placed on transitioning products from pre-clinical to clinical testing in a collaborative environment involving researchers and clinicians. 

The USAISR is co-located with San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC) in San Antonio, TX, which enables the research organization to have a unique in-depth understanding of combat injuries and civilian trauma and the clinical challenges faced by the physicians and surgeons who treat them. This creates a unique environment for translational research. 

To apply, applicants must submit their curriculum vitae, brief description of research interests and career goals, and email contact information for three references to:
