University Tenure Line or Non Tenure Line – Research
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Stanford University School of Medicine
The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine seeks research scientists in several areas of programmatic need across psychiatry, neuroscience, and neuropsychology. Appointments will be at the rank Assistant, Associate, or full Professor in the University Tenure Line or the Non Tenure Line – Research.
The chosen candidates will be expected to conduct scholarly research and teaching. Clinical care may also be a component of the candidate's portfolio of work, should a clinician be recruited. Excellent training and an established track record of scholarly research are expected. Candidates for the tenure line must be considered to be one of the very best in the broadly defined field, or demonstrate clear promise to become of the very best in that field. Candidates should have proven track record of success in producing high-quality scholarly work, in addition to excellence in teaching, commensurate with their stage of career. Possible candidates could include, but are not limited to physician scientists, neuroscientists, psychologists, neuropsychiatrists, or computational scientists, among others. Candidates should have an MD, PhD, or MD/PhD in neuroscience, neurobiology, psychology, biomedical engineering, statistics, computer science, or a related discipline. The Department has a priority need for basic and translational physician scientists.
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 and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.
