The Enemchukwu Lab in the Department of Urology at the Stanford School of Medicine is seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral scholar interested in health equity and improving access to underserved populations with pelvic floor disorders. The position provides an opportunity to conduct clinical research that leverages technology to improve access to care and advance health education. We seek to develop novel, affordable, scalable, and accessible technologies to empower underserved and vulnerable populations to access therapy and close health equity gaps. The project seeks to develop methods for individualizing therapy and to implement novel strategies critical to improving therapy access, adherence, and utilization for patients from minority, frail elderly, and other underserved populations.
We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow to conduct qualitative, quantative and mixed methods studies involving key stakeholders and large administrative data sets. This will be used to inform data-driven tools to individualize therapy and leverage technology to expand access.
We seek self-motivated individuals who seek to take advantage of the vast resources and potential for collaboration across departments at Stanford. The fellow will conduct research under the mentorship of Dr. Ekene Enemchukwu (PI) and her research collaborators. The goals for the post-doctoral fellow are to build and successfully execute independent projects within Dr. Enemchukwu’s research program through active collaboration with the PI and her national collaborators. Additionally, Dr. Enemchukwu and her research collaborators will provide mentorship on writing papers, submitting grant applications, presenting results at conferences, and preparing for a future career in an academic or nonacademic setting.
Stanford University provides an extensive post-doctoral training program to guide professional development, including workshops focused on grant writing, career development, networking, and job search within and outside academia.
The start date is flexible in Spring or Fall 2023. The position includes health benefits, paid vacation, sick leave, and time to attend national conferences. A detailed description of university benefits is available at:
