Title: Assistant Professor in the University Tenure Line (UTL)

Where: Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine in Stanford University, to be identified as the optimal home department of the successful candidate.

Qualifications: Interested in candidates who have a doctoral degree in computer science, electrical engineering, bioinformatics or related field and who have research interests in clinical or translational informatics, bioinformatics, or related subdisciplines, and who have or will develop an independent research program in the computational sciences. The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching. The successful candidate will conduct a vigorous, independent research program, teach in the classroom, and advise students in any of a number of graduate programs in computational sciences. Faculty members appointed as Assistant Professors will have completed one or two years of postdoctoral research experience. Their accomplishments during graduate and postgraduate training should already have stamped them as creative and promising investigators. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience in developing novel analytical tools to analyze the cellular composition of organs and/or tissues and who can complement and enhance existing strengths in stem cell biology, cancer biology, developmental biology, bioinformatics, and bioengineering within the Institute and the University.

We expect the successful candidate to establish an innovative research program studying fundamental stem cell biology. Responsibilities include teaching graduate students and research-oriented medical students in an area that would complement the Institute’s existing strengths.

The activities of the Division/Department are diverse and include basic, translational and clinical applications in embryonic stem cells, reprogramming, cancer stem cells and adult stem cells. The stem cell biology and regenerative medicine activities offer unique opportunities for the successful candidate to build a strong program of independent research complemented by collaborative efforts across different departments.

How to Apply: Interested candidates should send a copy of their curriculum vitae, a brief letter outlining their interests and the names of three references to:

Dr. Michael F. Clarke
Chair, Stem Cell Computation Search Committee
Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine
Lorry Lokey Stem Cell Research Building, Room G2021A
