Two New Professional Opportunities Available in Focused Ultrasound


The Focused Ultrasound Foundation is dedicated to advancing the field of focused ultrasound. One facet of this goal is to match researchers, scientists, and clinicians with institutions seeking candidates for open employment opportunities. Below are two open positions in the field.

Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery Fellowship at Stanford University

Stanford University is offering a new Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery fellowship designed to provide training in all techniques of functional neurosurgery, with an emphasis on transcranial focused ultrasound (FUS) and epilepsy.

This opportunity has been approved by the Society of Neurological Surgeons’ Committee on Advanced Subspecialty Training (CAST). Dr. Casey Halpern, Associate Professor of Neurosurgery and Director of Epilepsy Surgery at Stanford, will lead this fellowship.

The fellow will be hired as a clinical instructor with attending-level responsibilities and research obligations. One critical aim of the fellowship is multi-disciplinary exposure to FUS and to advance FUS neurosurgical research. Protected time for additional research will be encouraged, while the fellow focuses on supporting Dr. Halpern’s busy stereotactic practice, including deep brain stimulation and novel indication clinical trials, as well as the epilepsy surgery program at Packard Hospital led by Dr. Gerald Grant, Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery. Dr. Pejman Ghanouni, who leads the radiology and MR physics teams that conduct focused ultrasound treatments with Dr. Halpern at Stanford, will be heavily involved as a clinical and academic mentor.
