We are pleased to announce that the Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection is recruiting 2 new faculty members at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level. The Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection is dedicated to fostering research leading to the development of in vitro and in vivo strategies for the low-cost, early detection, and diagnosis of solid tumors (particularly cancers of the ovary, prostate, colon, lung, pancreas, breast and brain). Candidates should have significant and demonstrated interest in early cancer detection research. Stanford University and the Department of Radiology have made substantial commitments towards the expansion of early cancer diagnostics research including the opening of a new building with significant space available to Canary Center members.
Position 1 Description: We seek applicants with a clinical/translational background who will focus on translational research contributing to the development and clinical application of new early cancer diagnosis approaches. We are interested in applicants with broad and synergistic expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of solid tumors, cancer research, and particularly those clinician-scientists with extensive cross-disciplinary experience. Applicants should have a M.D. or M.D/Ph.D. degrees with relevant experience in oncology, pathology, epidemiology, cancer biology, genetics, molecular biology, chemistry, molecular pharmacology, bioengineering, or other relevant field. The successful candidate must be board-certified, or the equivalent, and must be eligible for medical licensure or special permit in the state of California. Appointment in a joint or secondary department/school will be determined based on faculty specialty and interest.
Position 2 Description: We seek applicants interested in developing a research program focused around early cancer detection. We are interested in applicants who have multidisciplinary experience relevant towards the development of new cancer diagnosis and detection approaches. Expertise synergistic with existing faculty is critical. The qualified candidate should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degrees with relevant experience in cancer biology, genetics, bioengineering, materials sciences, chemical or mechanical engineering, epidemiology or other relevant field.
All Candidates: Must have interest in leading or participating in our center-wide efforts to translate novel technologies or methodologies into clinical practice and have the desire to collaborate with investigators in Stanford’s multi-disciplinary cancer research effort, which includes faculty in the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Humanities & Sciences, and external investigators pursuing similar research goals. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated breadth of preparation, as exemplified by significant clinical and/or research experience resulting in high impact publications in cancer research, engineering, and/or medicine, success with obtaining grant funding (e.g., NIH award(s)), and expertise in multi-disciplinary research. We are looking for motivated individuals who are committed to excellence in research, teaching, and mentoring of students in multi-disciplinary cancer research. In particular, successful candidates will demonstrate interest in the development of ideas, techniques or platforms for early detection and diagnosis of cancer.
Appointments will be in the University Tenure Line, Non-Tenure Line (Research) or Medical Center Line. 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. The major criteria for appointment for faculty in the Medical Center 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.
Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of and applications from women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university's research, teaching and clinical missions.
Applicants must submit a curriculum vitae summarizing their educational and professional background, along with a current list of published work, clinical trials they have led or contributed to if applicable, and a brief statement (4-5 pages) describing the candidate’s research and teaching activities and interests and how they relate to the position described above with specific emphasis on cancer early detection.
