Assistant, Associate or Full Professor of Surgical Pathology or Cytopathology (University Medical Line or Clinician Educator Line)

Stanford University School of Medicine: Pathology

Location: Amador, San Ramon and Livermore valleys

Open Date: Dec 17, 2021

The Stanford Department of Pathology seeks three outstanding Surgical Pathologists and/or Cytopathologists for appointment at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor in the University Medical Line or Clinician Educator Line to practice at the Stanford Health Care – Valley Care (SHC-VC) medical center in Pleasanton, CA (~55 miles from Stanford campus). Fellowship training in a subspecialty of surgical pathology and/or cytopathology is strongly preferred.

SHC-VC provides community-based care, including expanding oncology services, to the surrounding Tri- Valley region (Amador, San Ramon and Livermore valleys). Faculty practicing at SHC-VC would be connected digitally to the Palo Alto campus with the ability to share cases and interact directly with other faculty and trainees.

Stanford Medicine is committed to lead the biomedical revolution in precision health, and recognizes that success in achieving this vision will require world-class innovation and method development for patient care across all aspects of pathology. The Department of Pathology fully embraces this inspiring vision as we collaborate closely with our colleagues in Stanford Health Care, Stanford Children's Health, and Stanford University School of Medicine. We are seeking experienced and ambitious colleagues who are enthusiastic about our vision and committed to our collaborative culture.

The major criteria for appointment in the University Medical Line are excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, clinical teaching, and scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine, and institutional service appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill. There are many opportunities for University Medical Line faculty to develop independent or collaborative programs in clinical, translational or basic research. The major criteria for appointment in the Clinician Education Line are excellence in clinical care and clinical teaching. Clinician Educators are encouraged to participate in research programs, as their clinical and educational responsibilities permit. Faculty rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

Successful candidates will join the faculty in the Department of Pathology, which currently includes a Nobel laureate, multiple members of the National Academies, and many other investigators with national and international distinctions. In conjunction with its outstanding research program, the Department of Pathology is responsible annually for over 16 million laboratory tests and 80,000 anatomic pathology specimens, and educates outstanding graduate students, residents and fellows.

Candidates must be board certified or board eligible in Anatomic Pathology or Anatomic & Clinical Pathology (or equivalent qualification) and must hold an MD or MD/PHD and hold or acquire a license to practice medicine in the State of California. Preference will be given to applicants with fellowship training in surgical pathology (e.g. gastroenterology, genitourinary, head & neck, thoracic, breast, gynecologic, general, etc.) and/or cytopathology.

Application Instructions
The Department of Pathology, School of Medicine, and Stanford University value faculty who are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. Candidates may optionally include as part of their research or teaching statement a brief discussion of how their work will further these ideals. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, cover letter, brief description of plans for future research, and list of references at
