Women's Health Faculty (Assistant or Associate Professor in the University Medical Line)

Stanford University’s Department of Medicine (Division of Primary Care and Population Health) and Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology seek a new junior or mid-career faculty member with a clinical or health services research focus in Women’s Health (defined broadly, to include individuals with diverse gender identities). Successful candidates should be physicians who have specific training in women’s health (e.g., women’s health postdoctoral fellowship training or obstetrics/gynecology training) or demonstrated experience and reputation in a women’s health field, as well as research training, and strong potential for influential publication and impact on health care delivery systems.

Candidates must have an MD or equivalent in medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, health services, or a related field, and post-doctoral training is preferred. The position will be at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank in the University Medical Line. The position entails a combination of research, clinical practice, education, and program administration depending on the qualifications of the successful applicant, and includes opportunities at both Stanford and its Veterans Administration (VA) affiliate, the VA Palo Alto Health Care System.

We are seeking dynamic, creative individuals to develop their own research program in collaboration with other faculty members. Successful and qualified candidates will exhibit accomplishment in research that applies theory and evidence to understand and address problems in women’s health and women’s health care delivery. Candidates should have a growing track record of publication and funding commensurate with experience. Candidates will also be expected to contribute to our mission through education and teaching including training and mentoring of residents, fellows and other trainees in graduate programs associated with the Stanford University School of Medicine.

The major criteria for appointment in the University Medical 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 will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

Interested candidates should submit their curriculum vitae, a brief statement outlining their clinical and research interests, and the names of three references to Dr. Susan Frayne at: https://facultypositions.stanford.edu/https://facultypositions.stanford.edu/en-us/job/493399/womens-health-faculty-assistant-or-associate-professor-in-the-university-medical-line. Please note that references will not be contacted until we have the applicant’s consent.

The Departments of Medicine and Obstetrics & Gynecology, 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.
