The Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Stanford University is seeking a basic and/or translational scientist to join the Division of Head and Neck Surgery as a faculty member in the University Tenure Line (UTL) or in the Non-tenure Line (Research). Candidates should have a strong background in, and a focus on, translational head and neck cancer research. This search is open to a wide range of possible scientific expertise, including, but not limited to molecular and cellular biology, genetics, developmental biology, cellular biology, bioengineering, systems biology, bioinformatics, molecular imaging, and immunology. As this is a clinical department, the candidate’s scientific program and scope should have a clear potential impact to advance the understanding and treatment of diseases and disorders related to head and neck oncology (e.g. squamous cell carcinoma, thyroid/parathyroid neoplasms, and nasopharyngeal carcinoma).  

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. Faculty line and rank will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate and can range from Assistant to Full Professor.

Qualifications for this position are the ability to conduct independent research and a demonstrated commitment to this; a track record of successful postdoctoral research and (for advanced rank) evidence of a successful career based on publications and funding. A PhD or MD degree, or equivalent, is required.

Submissions will be reviewed beginning August 1, 2021, and accepted until the position is filled.

Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Stanford welcomes applications from all who would bring additional dimensions to the University’s research, teaching and clinical missions.

The Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, School of Medicine, and Stanford University value faculty who are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. Candidates may optionally include as part of their research or teaching statement a brief discussion of how their work will further these ideals.

Submit curriculum vitae, letter of inquiry and the names and addresses of three references to Lori Abrahamsohn, Faculty Affairs Administrator for the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, at lori4@stanford.edu.
