Stanford University School of Medicine
Stanford Cancer Institute
Assistant or Associate Professor
Cancer Biology and Therapeutics

The Stanford Cancer Institute at the Stanford University School of Medicine seeks innovative and collaborative researchers to join the Institute as an Assistant or Associate Professor in the University Tenure Line (UTL) or Medical Center Line (MCL). The successful candidate may be a post-doctoral fellow, clinical fellow, assistant professor or associate professor who has demonstrated the potential to achieve or has a demonstrated record of achievement in cancer-relevant research and publications in leading scientific or medical journals.

The predominant criterion for appointment in the UTL is a major commitment to research and teaching. The major criteria for appointment for faculty in the MCL is 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, line and departmental affiliation will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

The nexus of cancer biology and cancer therapeutics, encompassing early drug discovery, experimental therapeutics and Phase 1 clinical research are developing areas within our translational oncology program. These areas benefit from broad interactions with other basic and clinical research programs within the Institute, from the expertise available within Stanford University at large, and from a large and growing patient population from Stanford Health Care network. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an independent research program that will contribute to a rapidly growing interdisciplinary translational research effort focused on new drug discovery and early phase clinical research. The successful candidate will be expected to teach graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, clinical fellows and participate in relevant clinical and basic science conferences. Candidates must have a MD, MD/PhD or PhD.

Interested applicants should submit the following:
1. Cover letter of interest outlining (broadly) the applicant's scientific background and future vision.
2. CV and bibliography
3. Contact information for at least 3 referees
