Junior Faculty Position Search. Stanford Neurosciences Institute and School of Engineering, Stanford University. The Stanford Neurosciences Institute (SNI) and the School of Engineering (SOE) at Stanford University invite applications for a junior faculty tenure track position (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor level) at the interdisciplinary interface between neuroscience and engineering, broadly defined. The appointment will be in one or more of the nine departments within SOE, as appropriate to the candidate's field of expertise. Applicants are expected to have a doctoral degree in any engineering field applicable to neuroscience, broadly defined, including bioengineering, biomedical engineering, materials science, chemical engineering, physics, chemistry, computer science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or any related discipline.
The successful candidate will be expected to develop outstanding, highly interdisciplinary neuro-engineering research and teaching programs. We are open to applications from individuals working on a broad range of problems and experimental preparations. The research focus may range from fundamental bioscience to clinically motivated research to theory and computation. We encourage applications from physician-engineers. Ideal candidates will demonstrate strong communication and leadership skills, and will be able to actively contribute to our rapidly growing institute and engineering programs at Stanford.
A strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching and advising is essential. Teaching responsibilities include participation in and the development of both undergraduate and graduate courses. The supervision of doctoral students and academic advising of students at all levels is expected.
Applications will be accepted only through an on-line process and should include a 3 page research statement, a one page teaching plan, complete CV (including publications list), and names and addresses of 3 suitable references. Applicants should visit our recruitment site at: https://mse.stanford.edu/faculty-search. This web site is currently open to receive applications until February 15th, 2017 or until the position is filled. Questions may be addressed to: neuroengineeringsearch@stanford.edu.
