Are you interested in research that is directly influenced by clinically-important questions? Are you passionate about science and rigorous in the work you do? Chronic pain affects millions of people, we want to understand why that is.
We are aiming to recruit 1-2 postdoctoral research fellows in the lab of Dr. Vivianne Tawfik (tawfiklab.stanford.edu) in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine. We perform clinically-informed basic science examining the mechanisms of neuroimmune interactions in pain. Our particular interests include understanding the transition from acute to chronic pain using perioperative injury models, "visualizing pain" using advanced imaging techniques, and understanding the whole system immune response to injury using mass cytometry.
Candidates must have an MD and/or PhD in neuroscience, immunology, or pharmacology with experience in rodent models. Experience with optogenetics, RNA sequencing or flow cytometry is preferred. The successful candidate should be able to work independently and be willing to collaborate with multiple research and clinical groups within our world-class institution. Ample opportunities for career development, mentorship, and clinical exposure based on candidate interest.
