ASSISTANT or ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

BASIC AND TRANSLATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE

NON-TENURE LINE (RESEARCH)

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford has a great tradition of fundamental science, translational and clinical research, subspecialty expertise, multidisciplinary education, and influential leadership. The overarching aim of creating a better future is predicated on our shared pursuit of discovery across the basic, translational, clinical, and population sciences and on our collaborative efforts to translate new knowledge in our training of scientists and expert clinicians, in supporting the careers of outstanding faculty and learners, and in addressing the needs of communities, local and global.

The Department is currently seeking two full-time Professoriate faculty members at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in the Non-Tenure Line (Research). These are positions for bench scientists who are specializing in basic and translational scholarly research that significantly advances understanding of the neurophysiological and/or genetic underpinnings of psychiatric illness, as well as psychological resilience and capacity for stress.

The chosen candidate will be expected to engage in translational scholarly research and teaching in areas including, but not limited to, psychiatric genetics, animal models of psychiatric dysfunction and preclinical studies centered on the development of innovative psychiatric treatments targeting social aspects of mental health and contributors to disability such as social functioning and/or resilience to stress among other areas of bench research.

Candidates must hold a doctoral-level degree and have stamped themselves as creative and promising investigators with proven ability to obtain external funding, as well as outstanding performance, or promise for outstanding performance, as a teacher and mentor.

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.
