SIIRG Clinical Trials and Patient Oriented Research Fellowship

The Stanford Skin Innovation and Interventional Research Group (SIIRG) is offering a clinical trials and patient oriented research fellowship opportunity for a highly motivated individual interested in the conduct of clinical trials and clinical translational research in the field of medical dermatology.  This is a two-year position, though a one-year commitment may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The candidate will develop significant expertise in clinical trials conduct through involvement in multiple interventional clinical trials focused on epidermolysis bullosa and inflammatory skin disorders such as atopic dermatitis, development and use of patient registries in key dermatologic conditions, along with driving translational efforts focused on understanding the physiologic effects of important biologics in dermatology.  This is a unique opportunity to conduct collaborative clinical research alongside multiple dermatology subspecialists; in addition to playing a key role in multiple high impact clinical studies, the candidate will have ample opportunity to write and publish on their projects.   The candidate must be a proactive team-player with strong attention to detail and robust writing and communication skills.  The experience will take place primarily at our Redwood City outpatient campus, though periodic travel by car to Stanford Main Campus is expected.  The candidate will have opportunities to foster multiple direct mentorship relationships with dermatology faculty through this collaborative experience.
