The Department of Anesthesia at Indiana University (IU) invites applications from faculty candidates with diverse research interests, expertise and a commitment to an academic medical career. The department of Anesthesia is transforming to a leading destination for clinician-scientists, translational and basic science researchers through recruitment and development of multiple principal investigators, expansion of research infrastructure, and increasing external funding. The current research portfolio includes programs in pediatric and adult pain medicine, cancer pain, neurosciences, traumatic brain injury, and opioid pharmacogenomics. Collaborative institutional research is supported by Indiana School of Medicine, Indiana CTSI and various research cores. Ample laboratory space and resources, and highly competitive recruitment packages are available for successful candidates through the Center for Anesthesia Research Excellence (CARE) of the IU Department of Anesthesia. Clinicians, translational and basic scientists will have resources through CARE, clinical and other collaborations within the Indiana University Health Hospitals, Riley Children's Hospital, Indiana University School of Medicine, Regenstrief Institute, and the Roudebush Veterans Medical Center. Collaborative institutional research initiatives include the Lilly Endowment-funded Physician Scientist Initiative (PSI), the strategic research initiative (SRI), and the Indiana Collaborative Initiative for Talent Enrichment (INCITE), a collaboration between IU School of Medicine and non-academic partners such as the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute, Eli Lilly and Co., Roche, Dow, Cook, BioCrossroads, IU Health and Eskenazi Health.
