Pituitary Clinical and Research Endocrinologist

The Pacific Neuroscience Institute (PNI) in Santa Monica, CA is seeking to hire a full-time board certified/board eligible clinical endocrinologist to work specifically within the Pacific Pituitary Disorders Center and the Pacific Brain Health Center. The position covers a unique blend of clinical work and research with a focus in all types of pituitary disorders and brain wellness.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a physician with a strong clinical and research interest in pituitary tumors, hypopituitarism and a desire to better understand the role of pituitary hormones in brain health, as well as memory and mood disorders. Under the direction of Institute director and neurosurgeon, Daniel Kelly, MD, PNI and the Pacific Pituitary Disorders Center has a long clinical and academic track record in the surgical and medical management of patients with all types of pituitary tumors (including pituitary adenomas, craniopharyngiomas, Rathke’s cleft cysts), and hypopituitarism (from pituitary tumors, radiotherapy, TBI and other etiologies such as immunotherapy).

Interested candidates should have a demonstrated clinical expertise and academic track record in treating patients with pituitary tumors, and experience with clinical trials. It is anticipated that the position will be approximately 50% clinical and 50% research time and effort.

PNI is part of Providence St. Joseph Health and is based at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, CA. The current PNI faculty now includes 25 MDs and 9 PhDs in a non-traditional multi-specialty unsiloed arrangement that promotes collaboration and innovation. Many of the PNI faculty are also faculty at John Wayne Cancer Institute, also based at Saint John’s Health Center. In collaboration with JWCI, PNI has a neurosurgical fellowship training program in endoscopic and minimally invasive brain tumor surgery and has many visiting international fellows and scholars each year. The Institute has an active teaching program that involves students (both undergrad and graduate), as well as a robust CME program and long-standing patient education effort in pituitary health.
