Pain Imaging Investigator

The Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Stanford University seeks an investigator in the area of pain or disease-based imaging to join the Department as Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor in the Non-Tenure Line (Research).


We are seeking a dynamic, creative individual to lead a pain or disease-based imaging research program and to foster collaborations with other faculty members with the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative, and Pain Medicine and broadly in the School of Medicine. The individual should have experience in imaging not limited to the brain or cognitive/affective neurosciences. Expertise in imaging the human brainstem, spinal cord and/or the musculoskeletal system are examples of relevant skills. The ability to use multiple forms of imaging, complementary measurements and the analysis of additional biomarkers would be desirable.


Additional requirements include doctoral level training (M.D. or Ph.D.) and one or two years of postdoctoral research experience. Qualified candidates will exhibit a growing track record of publications and funding commensurate with experience and career stage. The successful candidate will additionally be expected to contribute to our mission through education and teaching including training and mentoring of residents, fellows, and other trainees in graduate programs associated with the Stanford University School of Medicine.


  • The major criterion for appointment for faculty in the Non-tenure Line (Research) is evidence of high-level performance as a researcher for whose special knowledge a programmatic need exists.


Faculty rank will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.
