Our research team is looking for a postdoctoral scholar in perinatal pharmacoepidemiology. The scholar will work closely with Drs. Brian Bateman and Stephanie Leonard on NIH-funded research projects on the comparative safety and effectiveness of medications in pregnancy and related research topics. Our projects employ advanced analytical methods in large databases, which include claims data and electronic health record data in conventional structures and in common data models. Current topical focus areas include mental health, behavioral health and cardiovascular health of people who are pregnant or postpartum.
Our research group prioritizes a collaborative and inclusive team environment. The principal investigators are experienced mentors who are highly committed to supporting the postdoctoral scholar in advancing their career as a future independent investigator. The postdoctoral scholar will have opportunities to both lead and contribute to research projects. We regularly collaborate with researchers across disciplines and institutions.
This postdoctoral fellowship position will be based in the Stanford Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative & Pain Medicine and the Dunlevie Maternal-Fetal Medicine Center at Stanford. Trainees from any discipline who meet the required qualifications are encouraged to apply.
