Faculty Search for Neurology Memory Disorders Senior Faculty
The Department of Neurology at Stanford University seeks a board-certified neurologist to join the Memory Disorders Division as a Professor or Associate Professor in the University Tenure Line (UTL), University Medical Line (UML), or Non-Tenure Line-Research (NTLR).
• 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 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.
• The major criterion for appointment for faculty in the Non-tenure Line (Research) is evidence of high-level performance as a researcher for whose special knowledge a programmatic need exists.
Faculty rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.
The successful applicant should have a medical degree or equivalent; behavioral neurology fellowship training or an established record of excellence in Alzheimer’s disease or a related brain disorder; ABPN board certification or eligibility (clinician applicants); eligibility for a California medical license (clinician applicants); and suitable clinical, teaching, and scholarship experience.
We are particularly interested in candidates who combine proven leadership skills with an outstanding record of academic accomplishment and a dedication to excellence in research, clinical, and educational missions in an academic medical center. Candidates should be accomplished physician-investigators with a national reputation.
The Memory Disorders division has a large research footprint, which includes P30 NIH grant funding supporting the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC). Participant recruitment for the ADRC comes largely from patients seen by Memory Disorders division faculty. The research and clinical aims of the Division will be enhanced by the recruitment of a physician scientist who can bring a research program (either clinical/dry lab or basic/wet lab) that intersects with the ADRC and draws on ADRC resources. The Division, the ADRC, and the behavioral neurology fellowship program will benefit from a senior research leader in the field with the potential to step into administrative and leadership roles. As such, the ideal candidate will be an MD or MD, PhD with a strong record of funded research in Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, who could also play important roles in teaching and patient care.
We expect the successful candidate to direct the applicant’s established memory disorders research program; teach medical students, graduate students, residents, and clinical and research fellows; and provide out-patient care of memory disorders patients (clinician applicants). Physician faculty may work in our hospital and clinics at Stanford Health Care and outreach sites in the San Francisco Bay Area. The successful candidate will be encouraged to interact with the wide range of clinical, translational, and basic science programs at Stanford and to enhance nationally recognized research programs at Stanford.
Applications will be reviewed beginning immediately and accepted until the position is filled.
