Fellowships/Job postings

If your program has any open positions that would be of interest to our community of junior academic anesthesiologists, please consider emailing us ( to post the opportunity here.


NIDUS (Network for Investigation of Delirium across the U.S.)
is now accepting applications for the 2017 CEDARTREE-NIDUS Delirium Boot Camp, a 3-day intensive training workshop on delirium research will take place in Boston, Nov. 1-3. Recognized experts in the field will discuss cutting-edge research approaches, from delirium assessment and methodology to novel technologies and interventions. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with world-renowned experts in delirium and related fields. Applications are due on June 23. More information and the application are available on our website:

stanford-medStanford Anesthesia Training Program in Biomedical Research (T32 program)
The objective of the Anesthesia Training Program in Biomedical Science is to train leaders in academic anesthesia by teaching trainees new technologies and approaches to anesthesia research. To accomplish this goal, additional training beyond an MD or PhD is required. This two-year training program provides the guidance, training, and mentoring critical to increase the success of these trainees in launching their careers in academic anesthesia research.

Administratively, the program consists of a director, steering committee and a group of 20 highly skilled and successful training faculty from the anesthesia department and from 8 other departments within the medical school. The faculty is divided into 3 overarching areas:

  • 1) Omics: a systems approach to disease
  • 2) Inflammation, Signaling and Tissue Injury
  • 3) Mechanisms of Anesthesia and Addiction

For more information visit our website:

Applications are due by January 31, 2017. Please note that we sometimes have additional fellowship openings, so please contact us if you are interested in discussing a possible off-cycle appointment.

Research Training in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine (T32 program)

The Department of Anesthesiology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, invites applications for its NIH funded postdoctoral training program in anesthesiology and pain medicine. The goal of the T32 Postdoctoral Research Fellowship program is to develop physician-scientists who will be leaders in the field of anesthesia research, by providing rigorous postdoctoral research training with an emphasis on hypothesis-driven laboratory or clinical research. The training faculty is multidisciplinary and includes both clinician-scientists and basic scientists as mentors in order to bridge the gap between basic science research on the bench top to clinical care at the bedside.

The current research focus in the Department of Anesthesiology is concentrated in four main areas:
• Molecular and cellular mechanisms of general anesthesia; Learning and memory under anesthesia
• Mechanisms and genetics of pain, sensory mechanisms
• Mechanisms of cell injuries and recovery, perioperative care
• Basic and clinical research related to patient safety and OR management in anesthesia

The training program provides a competitive stipend, a travel and research allowance, health insurance, and tuition assistance. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. See here for more information.

The applicant must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident in accordance with NIH regulations.
Trainees, most of whom hold a MD degree, are expected to spend at least two years in the training program and devote a minimum of 80% effort toward their research. Resident or Fellow-level physicians who will be eligible for board examinations are encouraged to apply. For trainees with a PhD degree, the research and training are specifically designed to promote a research career addressing problems in anesthesiology and provide opportunities to enhance the trainees’ research training with a clinical perspective.

Applications are encouraged from individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged economic, social, cultural, or educational backgrounds.
Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae (CV), a letter describing research interests and relevant experience, and contact information for three references to Yan Xu, PhD, Program Director

The University of Pittsburgh is an Affirmative Action/ Equal Opportunity Employer.

Training in Mechanisms and Clinical Presentation of Pain (T32 program)

Two postdoctoral positions, funded by an NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award, are available in the Pittsburgh Center for Pain Research (PCPR) at the University of Pittsburgh. The PCPR aims to recruit and train the next generation of leaders in pain research, focusing on cutting-edge theories, techniques, and research strategies.

Areas of research may include, but are not limited to, basic and/or clinical investigations on
• the molecular and cellular changes that contribute to the development of chronic pain
• analysis of CNS pain circuits
• human imaging studies
• pain genetics
• fundamental processes underlying pain, itch, or touch

In addition, this training program provides a clinical component for the education of postdoctoral fellows with exposure to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain patients. Systematic and structured training will be provided in the laboratories of leading scientists with wide-ranging interests and research programs.

Applicants must have a PhD or MD/PhD degree in Neuroscience, Biology, Molecular Biology, Pharmacology, Physiology, Bioengineering, or a related field, and have demonstrated excellence in research. Previous experience in pain research is not required. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident in accordance with NIH regulations. Applications are encouraged from individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged economic, social, cultural, or educational backgrounds.
Candidates should submit a CV, a letter with a brief description of research interests and career goals, and contact information for three references to Joanne Hirt (

Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
