Specific requests: The candidate must be ready to work and progress in her/his PhD project on the design, execution and analysis of behavioural studies of experimental pain in murine models using nociceptive paradigms, including thermal nociceptive models, neuropathic pain models and mechanical perception models, and complementary behavioural tests for the evaluation of locomotion, anxiety, depression and cognition. A particular focus will be given to the elucidation of inter-individual variability due to genetic (including sex) and/or environmental factors with the different treatments or conditions studied. Candidates should hold a valid MSc degree (e.g. Biology, Biotechnology, Pharmacology, Neurosciences, Medicine, Psychobiology, Pharmacy or related subjects) or equivalent Degree (e.g. Medicine); an average mark (“nota media”) of the BSc degree or a combined mark of BSc and MSc
