The Division of Radiation Therapy in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University seeks an MD/PhD or MD board eligible or board certified radiation oncologist to join the Department as an Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor in the University Tenure Line. This position is ideally suited for a physician-scientist with a translational research focus combining an 80% radiobiology research effort with a 20% clinical effort.
The successful applicant should have developed/is expected to develop an academic laboratory-based program relevant to the field of radiation therapy (e.g. radiation, DNA repair, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, etc.). Applicants will have completed their residency in an ACGME accredited program and have their California medical license by the starting date. Demonstrated clinical experience is expected. The area of clinical focus will be determined by the programmatic needs of the Department, as well as the area of expertise in the case of established investigators. Experience in multi-modality treatment planning (e.g. PET, 4D CT, MRI), image guided radiotherapy (IGRT), and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is desired.
The first criterion for a UTL appointment at Stanford is that the candidate must have achieved (or, in the case of Assistant Professors, have the promise to achieve) true distinction in scholarship. For the Associate Professor rank, the scholarship must reveal that the candidate is not only among the best in his or her experience cohort in a broadly defined field, but is also likely to become one of the very best in that field. At the rank of Professor, the scholarship must reveal that the candidate is one of the very best in the broadly defined field. Accordingly, faculty rank will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate. The successful applicant will spend a portion of time in clinical radiation therapy and teaching graduate students, research-oriented medical students, and radiation oncology residents and fellows.
The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching. The activities of the Department are diverse and include a strong basic science and translational research programs. The Department has a current Program Project Grant, a T32 Postdoctoral Training Grant to support Postdoctoral Fellows, and a Radiation Biology research program with the Stanford Cancer Institute, a National Cancer Institute Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
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, members of minority groups, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities, as well as from others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research, teaching, and clinical missions.
