Clinical effort may or may not be required for the candidate, based on their professional training and career focus.

Candidates with expertise in all facets of biomedical research (discovery, translational and/or clinical science) are encouraged to apply.

This faculty position will be split between the Division of Vascular Surgery and the Cardiovascular Institute (CVI;  This joint appointment has been proposed to provide the successful candidate with seamless access to the robust infrastructure of both groups and enhance the collaborations that already exist between the Division of Vascular Surgery and the Cardiovascular Institute. The successful candidate would be expected to leverage their expertise in vascular physiology and disease in order to accelerate our research efforts as they relate to atherosclerosis, thrombosis, angiogenesis, aneurysm disease and/or other conditions of translational significance to the field of vascular biology. The candidate would develop interdisciplinary collaborations with the diverse scientists and physicians who comprise the CVI, with a focus on the genetic and molecular mediators of vascular disease.  The successful candidate would be expected to have a track record of creative research in these areas, and a history of translating discovery into new research and clinical studies.  A primary goal of this recruitment is identifying a candidate who would use their research experience to catalyze collaboration between the Cardiovascular Institute and the Division of Vascular Surgery at Stanford.

The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching.

Successful candidates will have an appropriate mix of scholarly activity, teaching and, if appropriate, clinical care based on education and experience. Clinical responsibilities will apply only to MD candidates with substantial clinical skills and interests in vascular medicine and surgery. MD or PhD or MD/ PhD are required.
