Stanford Division of Pain Medicine Training Program in Pain and/or Substance Use Disorders is intended to develop postdoctoral trainees’ skills to become independent investigators in the fields of pain, substance abuse disorders, and their intersection. The training program (1-3 years) incorporates required and elective coursework, mentored research experiences, an individual integrated research project, seminars, and exposure to professional development skills, including grant proposal and manuscript writing. The aim of this program is to develop the next generation of academic leaders in pain and/or substance abuse disorder to ultimately better characterize these important conditions and translate discoveries into safe and effective treatments. The program provides, where appropriate, tuition for specific courses in support of our training program. This program is supported by an NIH National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) T32 training grant.Our program has successfully trained and helped transition multiple postdoctoral fellows into independent research careers.
The postdoctoral fellow may work with one of 16 primary mentors, spanning 7 departments – Anesthesiology, Neurobiology, Medicine, Psychiatry, Biology, Radiology, and Psychology.
Disciplines in which we offer training:
Molecular and cellular biology
“Omics” (genomics, proteomics, metabolomics)
Health Policy and Economics
To be appointed to a T32 research training grant, an individual must be a citizen, a non-citizen national of the United States or must have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence (i.e., in possession of a current, valid Alien Registration Receipt Card I-551, or must be in possession of other legal verification of such status) and not be supported by any other NIH grant at the time of the T32 appointment. Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible.
Trainees must have received, as of the beginning date of the appointment, an MD/PhD, MD or PhD or comparable doctoral degree from an accredited domestic or foreign institution. Written certification by an authorized official of the degree-granting institution that all degree requirements have been met, prior to the date training is to begin, is acceptable. We especially encourage applications from members of under-represented minority groups. Stanford is a non-discriminatory/affirmative action equal opportunity employer.

Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 12000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
