We are pleased to announce that the Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection is recruiting a new faculty member 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). 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.
We seek applicants committed to developing a research program focused around early cancer detection. We are interested in applicants who have multidisciplinary experience that can be applied to the development of new cancer diagnosis and detection approaches. Applicants with genomics and/or cancer biology experience are particularly encouraged to apply. Expertise synergistic with existing faculty is critical. The qualified candidate should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree(s) with experience in a relevant field.
Candidates must have interest in leading an independent research program and 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. 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, biology, techniques, or platforms for early detection and diagnosis of cancer.
Appointments will be in the University Tenure Line, or Non-Tenure Line (Research). 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. 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.
