The Translational Neurosciences and Neurotherapeutics Fellowship Program at Pacific Neuroscience Institute offers extensive post-residency training opportunities in clinical and translational research in the neurosciences and oncology (neuro-oncology). In collaboration with the John Wayne Cancer Institute and located in Santa Monica, CA, this program is designed to develop future academic neurologists, neurosurgical oncologists, and neuro-oncologists by providing opportunities for education and training to master the knowledge and acquire the necessary expertise in clinical and translational research across the neurosciences. The 2 year training is a mentorship-driven program personalized for the fellow and focuses on the acquisition and refinement of research skills including the evaluation and clinical care of research subjects, development of research protocols, performance of clinical and/or laboratory research, and preparation and presentation of study results. Clinical fellows will have an opportunity to work not only with the faculty at PNI and JWCI but also with clinicians and scientists from collaborating academic and research institutions, including but not limited to:
Providence St. Joseph Health, a faith-based not-for-profit health and social services system with 50 hospitals, 829 clinics and hundreds of services offered outside hospital walls.
LA BioMed, a non-profit scientific research organization located on the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center Campus and affiliated with the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
Institute for Systems Biology (ISB), a nonprofit biomedical research organization affiliated with Providence St. Joseph Health. ISB is based in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood and has a staff of 200 that includes 9 faculty members and laboratory groups.
Qualified applicants must have completed training in an ACGME-accredited neurological or neurosurgical residency program and be eligible for a California medical license. Applicants without a California medical license are eligible to apply as a research-only candidate.
We are currently interviewing for the July 2018 and July 2019 fellowship positions.
Applications must be submitted electronically as a PDF file that includes detailed curriculum vitae, a description of the candidate’s primary academic research interest, a brief description of their interests in this position and three letters of reference.
