The UT Southwestern Departments of Neuroscience and of Anesthesiology & Pain Management, together with the O’Donnell Brain Institute, jointly seek a scientist or physician-scientist who works on fundamental and/or translational aspects of pain. Appointment at any academic rank will be considered. The successful applicant will be appointed primarily in the department of Neuroscience or in the department of Anesthesia & Pain Management, depending upon their background and research focus. Applicants must have a track record for academic achievement in basic, translational, or clinical research. Basic research interests with a translational component are encouraged. These include, but are not limited to, interest in channels mediating analgesia, elucidating central pain/analgesia pathways, elucidating chronic pain mechanisms, and novel pain therapeutic approaches. For physician-scientists, there are outstanding opportunities to work with a multi-specialty, population health-focused care team in the comprehensive management of chronic pain patients.
Other desired characteristics of the ideal candidate include a career trajectory toward external funding (i.e., for new investigators) or funding in place, the ability to lead, and the emotional intelligence to thrive in a collaborative and rigorous environment. Attractive compensation, benefits, and relocation packages are available.
Advancing basic and clinical research in brain science a top priority at UTSW, so the successful candidate will work in a dynamic and expanding neuroscience environment. The O’Donnell Brain Institute (OBI) was established to develop UTSW as a leading institution for the care of patients with brain disease, and to pursue basic and clinical research to develop novel treatments for these disorders. A vigorous fundraising campaign for the O’Donnell Brain Institute has already raised several hundred million dollars to support these ambitious goals. UT Southwestern seeks to become the best Medical Center in North America and is committed to its vision of practicing The Future of Medicine, Today.
Applicants must have or be able to obtain a Texas medical license prior to employment and be BC/BE with the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA). Candidates are appointed as Assistant Instructors if they do not have board certification at hire; continued employment will be contingent upon receipt of ABA certification within two (2) years of initial hire date. Candidates with anesthesiology subspecialty training eligible for ABA subspecialty certification will be expected to obtain that certification within two (2) years of subspecialty training completion.
Appointment rank will be commensurate with academic accomplishments and experience.
