Faculty Position in Department of Radiology at Stanford University
We are pleased to announce that the Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection and the Stanford Cancer Institute are recruiting a faculty member at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level. Faculty may have an additional appointment in a basic science and/or clinical department depending upon their specialty.
We seek applicants committed to developing a cancer biology-focused research program with potential impact in areas such as early cancer diagnosis, tumor initiation / development / progression, cancer biomarkers (including genomics, circulating tumor DNA, cancer systems biology, proteomics, metabolomics, and others), computational analysis, or understanding cancer subtypes. We are particularly interested in applicants who have multidisciplinary experience that can inform the development of new cancer diagnosis and detection approaches. Applicants with tumor biology experience are particularly encouraged to apply. Expertise synergistic with existing faculty is critical. The qualified candidate should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree(s) with experience in a relevant field.
Candidates must have interest in leading an independent research program and participating in our center-wide efforts to translate novel technologies or methodologies into clinical practice and have the desire to collaborate with investigators in Stanford’s multi-disciplinary cancer research effort, which includes faculty in the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Humanities & Sciences, and external investigators. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated breadth of preparation, as exemplified by significant clinical and/or research experience resulting in high impact publications in cancer research, engineering, and/or medicine, success with obtaining grant funding (e.g., NIH award(s)), and expertise in multi-disciplinary research. We are looking for motivated individuals who are committed to excellence in research, teaching, and mentoring of students in multi-disciplinary cancer research. In particular, successful candidates will demonstrate interest in the development of ideas, biology, techniques, or platforms for cancer biology research.
Appointments will be in the University Tenure Line, Non-Tenure Line (Research) or Medical Center Line. The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching. The major criterion for appointment for faculty in the Non-Tenure Line (Research) is evidence of high-level performance as a researcher for whose special knowledge a programmatic need exists. The major criteria for appointment for faculty in the Medical Center Line shall be excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, clinical teaching, scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine, and institutional service appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill. Faculty rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.
