The Division of Pediatric Surgery in the Department of Surgery at Stanford University is seeking to fill two full-time academic surgeon positions. These faculty positions will be at the Assistant, Associate, or full Professor level (based on the candidate’s qualifications) in the University Medical Line (UML). We are particularly interested in candidates who have skills in surgical critical care, in addition to those candidates interested in general pediatric surgery. The primary location for these positions will be at Stanford Children’s Health, with a percentage of time dedicated to one or more of our satellite locations, including Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, Good Samaritan Hospital, California Pacific Medical Center, and John Muir Medical Center.

The major criteria for appointment for faculty in the University Medical 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 will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

The successful applicant must have an MD or MD/PhD degree, and must be board eligible/certified in Pediatric Surgery, and preferably have Surgical Critical Care board certification. The ideal candidate is one who can demonstrate either current funding or the potential to secure funding, providing clear evidence of their success in research. Candidates will also be expected to build and maintain an active clinical practice in their specialty with a strong commitment to mentorship, research development, and diversity, inclusion, and equity.
