The Systems Neuroscience & Pain Laboratory at Stanford
University (SNAPL) is actively recruiting a Clinical Research
Coordinate Associate who will join our research project on chronic
pain. Funded by the National Institute of Health and directed by
Professor Sean Mackey, our goal is to discover and validate
objective biomarkers of chronic pain. Ours is a multidisciplinary
project spanning multiple departments to collect functional MRI
measures, biomarkers from blood and microbiome, sensory testing,
wearables, and patient surveys. We will be using state-of-the-art
machine learning approaches to build biomarker signatures that will
ultimately be used to help optimize the care of those living with
chronic pain - a condition impacting 100 million Americans.
When you join, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with
top neuroscientists, psychologists, geneticists, sleep experts,
machine learning experts, and pain specialists at Stanford.
Multidisciplinary aspects of this project will allow you to explore
diverse and intellectually stimulating chronic pain topics
surrounding the biomarker design for chronic pain conditions.
