The Department of Translational Neurosciences Fellowship Program at Pacific Neuroscience Institute offers extensive post-residency training opportunities in clinical and translational research in neurosciences and neuro-oncology. In collaboration with John Wayne Cancer Institute located in Santa Monica, CA, this program is designed to develop future medical oncologists, neurosurgeons, and neuro-oncologists by providing opportunities for education and training to master the knowledge and acquire the necessary expertise in neurosciences. The 2-year training is a mentorship-driven program led by Dr. Santosh Kesari, MD, PhD, Founder of Pacific Neuroscience Institute, Chair and Professor of the Department of Translational Neurosciences. The personalized program for the fellow 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.
The Lundquist Institute, 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, neurosurgical residency, or a medical oncology fellowship and must be eligible for a California medical license. Applicants without appropriate medical licensing criteria are eligible to apply as a research-only candidate.
We are currently interviewing for fellows to start in July 2021, July 2022, and July 2023.
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.
