Tobacco/Cannabis Researcher (Assistant or Associate Professor in the University Tenure Line)

Work Type: University Tenure Line
Location: Stanford University
Categories: School of Medicine

Tobacco/Cannabis Researcher (Assistant or Associate Professor in the University Tenure Line)

The Stanford Prevention Research Center (SPRC) is recruiting an outstanding full‐time academic researcher at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in the University Tenure Line for appointment in the Department of Medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The successful candidate will be or demonstrates the potential to be a leader in academic research with a focus on tobacco and/or cannabis marketing, policy, and/or regulatory science. Of particular interest is developing the evidence to facilitate California's progress toward achieving the tobacco endgame with national implications.

Candidates must hold a PhD, MD, or equivalent in Behavioral Sciences, Public Health, Social Sciences, Communication, Health Services Research, Bioinformatics, Health Sciences, or other related fields. Training and experience in policy evaluation, implementation science, and health equity are strongly desired. Candidates with demonstrated success in collaborating with local, state, and federal government or sovereign tribal nations are preferred.

Stanford seeks candidates whose experience, teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to the institution's commitment to diversity and excellence. Faculty members will contribute to the research training of Stanford students and postdoctoral scholars associated with the SPRC, including mentorship programs, workshops, and supervised research. The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching. Faculty rank will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

The SPRC was established in 1972 to identify and modify factors that lead to atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and has since broadened its focus to other lifestyle-related chronic diseases. The Center includes researchers across multiple disciplines that evaluate and implement interventions to reduce disease morbidity and mortality. The candidate must be capable of or demonstrates the potential for conducting independent clinical research in the prevention of chronic disease. To foster multi-disciplinary collaboration across Stanford University, a candidate with experience across multiple research domains will be preferred, such as observational studies, experiments, message testing, implementation science, and regulatory policy. A history of competing successfully for competitive research awards is highly desirable. Demonstrated ability to mentor trainees in research will also be preferred. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will have a role in developing an interdisciplinary Tobacco and Cannabis Research Program housed within the Stanford Prevention Research Center. Affiliation or joint appointment with the Department of Health Policy is possible depending on the candidate's background and research interests.

Stanford University, the School of Medicine, and the Department of Medicine 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.

Interested candidates should upload a copy of their curriculum vitae, a statement of clinical, teaching, and research interests and accomplishments, and the names of three references (who will not be contacted without your permission) to search committee chair, Beverly Mitchell at:
