The Stanford Prevention Research Center, in the Department of Medicine, is seeking one new faculty member at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor level in the University Tenure Line or Non-Tenure Line (Research). Both physicians and non-physicians are encouraged to apply for this research-intensive, full-time, faculty position. There is commitment for competitive start-up funding and provision of adequate space that will be tailored to the needs of the successful applicant. Candidates should exhibit a track record of excellence in research and a potential to become top national and international caliber researchers. In addition, they should already demonstrate autonomy in developing their own research agenda. Independent grant funding (or, for more junior candidates, the potential to obtain such funding), publication record, and programmatic synergy with members of the Division will be considered. The Center is open to recruiting new faculty specializing in any field within the broad domain of prevention research and related investigative disciplines. Fields where the Center has strength and would like to grow further include, but are not limited to, intervention research, chronic disease prevention, cancer prevention, global health, delivery of preventive services, behavior change research, physical activity, energy balance, obesity, aging, genomics and personalized medicine, health-promoting mHealth and digital health interventions in the area of chronic disease prevention and control; community-based research and translation; impacts of the physical and social environments on health promotion/chronic disease prevention, health policy research related to health promotion/chronic disease prevention, and evidence-based medicine. While the position focuses on research, opportunities for clinical and teaching roles are available, as appropriate.
We expect the successful candidate to contribute to the needs in the Division in re-invigorating the research programs, strengthen our fellowship training, and create a more unified division in which faculty work collaboratively for the benefit of their own programs.
Rank will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidates.
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.
