The Division of General Pediatrics at Stanford University, School of Medicine, is seeking two leading clinician scholars for positions as Assistant, Associate, or full Professor in the University Tenure Line or Medical Center Line.  This individual will be expected to build upon existing research interests and expertise to advance new knowledge in child health.  We are seeking individuals with demonstrated or potential leadership, experience, and success in systems-level community-based and/or policy-relevant research.  Outstanding candidates may pursue scholarship in any area; however, priority will be given to applicants whose scholarship addresses child health disparities.

  • The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching.
  • The major criteria for appointment for faculty in the Medical Center Line shall be excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, clinical teaching, scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine, and institutional service appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill.

Faculty rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

The selected candidate will join an energetic team of academic and community faculty with nationally recognized leadership in child health research, clinical care, community engagement, and teaching. Clinical duties within the Division include supervision of medical students and residents in continuity and acute care clinics of the Gardner Packard Children’s Health Center, a FQHC community clinic, and/or primary clinical care in the Complex Primary Care clinic. Additional opportunities for professional development and leadership are available.  The Division of General Pediatrics serves a diverse and underserved population with disproportionately high levels of medical and social complexity.

The candidates should have a strong emerging record of academic excellence, and be board certified/board eligible in Pediatrics.  Preference will be given for candidates with completion or anticipated completion of a General Pediatrics Academic Fellowship or similar. Experience serving low-income, immigrant populations is preferred.
