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.

The current PNI faculty now includes 35+ MDs and PhDs in a non-traditional multi-specialty unsiloed arrangement that promotes collaboration and innovation.
