Stanford University and the Department of Radiology have made substantial commitments towards the expansion of the MIPS including new space at the Technology & Innovation Park.

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

We seek applicants committed to developing a research program focused on molecular imaging of living subjects. This includes but is not limited to novel imaging instrumentation, novel chemistry/materials science for molecular imaging agent development, novel assay development, mathematical modeling, and translation of imaging strategies for clinical application. Scientists with a research focus related to radiochemistry are particularly encouraged to apply. We are interested in applicants who have multidisciplinary experience that can be applied to the development of disease detection and management approaches. The qualified candidate should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree(s) with experience in a relevant field and/or potential and trajectory.

Candidates must have interest in leading an independent research program and participating in our center-wide efforts to translate novel technologies or methodologies into clinical practice and have the desire to collaborate with investigators in Stanford’s multi-disciplinary molecular imaging research effort, which includes faculty in the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Humanities & Sciences, and external investigators. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated breadth of preparation, as exemplified by significant clinical and/or research experience resulting in high impact publications in biomedical research. A successful candidate will be expected to obtain grant funding (e.g., NIH award(s)), and engage in multi-disciplinary research. We are looking for motivated individuals who are committed to excellence in research, teaching, and mentoring of students in multi- disciplinary biomedical research.
