Job Description




Computational Biologist/Data Scientist - Open Rank

Work type:
Non-Tenure Line (Research)
Location: Stanford University
Categories: School of Medicine

The Stanford Cardiovascular Institute and the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine in the Department of Medicine at Stanford University invite applicants for a faculty position at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor in the Non-Tenure Line (NTL-R) as a Computational Biologist/Data Scientist.

This is a new search by the Department of Medicine, Cardiovascular Division (CVMed) and the Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) at Stanford University. CVMed and CVI have identified a need for a researcher with a background in computational sciences, bioengineering or quantitative physiology, who will be able to lead a team to disruptive innovations. The successful bioengineer will accelerate existing collaborations between basic and translational scientists and clinicians, facilitate new collaborations, and develop new independent projects within the rich existing ecosystem of CVMed and CVI.

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 successful applicant should hold a PhD or equivalent credentials in a relevant discipline, be working at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level or equivalent. The ideal applicant will have a proven track record of funding for relevant projects, with the anticipation that they will be able to lead their own laboratory at Stanford. Mentorship of post-MD, post-PhD and other trainees would be an advantage. However, candidates with expertise in other areas of computational, bioengineering or quantitative physiology are encouraged to apply. While not mandatory, there is a preference for expertise in cardiovascular disease.

Faculty rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

The Department of Medicine, School of Medicine, and Stanford University value faculty who will help foster an inclusive academic environment for colleagues, students, and staff with a wide range of backgrounds, identities, and outlooks. Candidates may choose to include as part of their research and teaching statements a brief discussion about how their work and experience will further these ideals. Additional information about Stanford's IDEAL initiative may be found here:

Interested candidates should upload their curriculum vitae, a cover letter outlining their achievements in mentoring and teaching and research, and the names of three references (who will not be contacted without prior consent) and complete the application at: Computational Biologist/Data Scientist - Open Rank
