Assistant Professor

Department of Developmental Biology

Stanford University is seeking applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the Department of Developmental Biology in the Beckman Center for Molecular and Genetic Medicine in the School of Medicine.  We are particularly interested in candidates who will establish a vigorous and innovative research program studying fundamental biological processes in any experimental system. We also expect the successful candidate to participate in teaching advanced courses for graduate and medical students.

We view Developmental Biology in the broadest sense, encompassing Microbes to Humans and employing a wide-variety of molecular and genetic approaches as well as systems level biology, engineering, and computational science. Current faculty in the department of Developmental Biology use a diverse range of genetic, genomic, cell biological, biochemical, and computational approaches to study many different organisms, including microbes, worms, flies, fish, mice, and humans. For more information on our department see:  https://devbio.stanford.edu

The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching. Individuals appointed as Assistant Professors in the UTL will have completed housestaff training (where applicable) and, additionally, one or two years of postdoctoral research experience.  Their accomplishments during graduate and postgraduate training should already have stamped them as creative and promising investigators.  If these individuals have not had formal teaching experience, they should have demonstrated during their postdoctoral training a commitment to develop the skills necessary for first-rate teaching.  In short, the successful candidate must have demonstrated true distinction (or the promise of achieving true distinction) in research, and the capability of sustaining first-rate performance (or the promise of this) in teaching, and excellence in patient care (if applicable) appropriate to the programmatic need upon which the appointment is based.
