Faculty Member on the Research Line Primary Appointment in the Department of Radiation Oncology and Secondary Appointment in the Department of Medicine within the Quantitative Sciences Unit
The Department of Radiation Oncology and the Quantitative Sciences Unit (QSU) in the Department of Medicine’s Center for Biomedical Informatics Research at Stanford University School of Medicine seek a quantitative scientist to join the faculty at the Assistant, Associate, or Full rank on the Research Line. 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.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Biostatistics, Statistics, or a related field and an outstanding record doing collaborative biostatistics, with an emphasis in oncology. Areas of methodological expertise may include computational biology, imaging analysis, genomics, epidemiology, prediction modeling, survival analysis, trial design, causal inference, bioinformatics, and clinical informatics. We expect the successful candidate to engage primarily in collaborative research and to develop an independent research agenda in the development of methods directly stemming from collaborative work. Specifically, the candidate will help to programmatically build research infrastructure in the Department of Radiation Oncology and will serve as the quantitative leader on a number of studies initiated by investigators in Radiation Oncology, which will involve developing novel experimental designs, designing new methods, and mentoring junior data scientists in team science as well as clinical and translational investigators in research methods. The candidate is expected to identify and resolve methodological issues that arise in collaborative research, as a major expectation is to develop a research program in methodological areas that will directly benefit the candidate’s collaborative research and that will improve research methods for other quantitative scientists engaged in clinical and translational work.
Criteria for the position include evidence of the potential to obtain peer-reviewed research funding, excellence in collaborative biostatistics, teaching, and mentoring appropriate to the programmatic needs of the QSU and the Department of Radiation Oncology.
The major criterion for promotion for faculty on the Research Line is evidence of high-level performance as an investigator for whose special knowledge is crucial for addressing a critical programmatic need.
Applicants will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
Candidates should submit a cover letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and research statement to:
