The best way to contact Dr. Ash Alizadeh is by email: 

  • Graduate students: I have openings for graduate students at Stanford who would like to join the lab for a rotation. Please email me with a copy of your CV and a brief description of your background, coursework, and prior laboratory experience.
  • Medical Fellows: As a clinical oncologist I am actively interested in developing translational projects in the general area of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and the specific area of large cell lymphoma in cancer and stem cell function, using next-generation sequencing technologies. Please email me with a copy of your CV, description of your research background, and arrange to have references emailed to my address given above.
  • Post-Doctoral Fellows: There are post-doctoral positions currently available in my group:


    (1) Description: The Alizadeh Lab in the Divisions of Oncology and Hematology, in the Department of Medicine at Stanford University, invites postdoctoral fellowship applications from scientists interested in genomic approaches to hematologic malignancies. The lab’s goal is to attain a better understanding of the initiation, maintenance, and progression of hematologic malignancies, and their response to existing and novel therapies toward improving current treatment strategies. In this effort, we employ tools from functional genomics, computational biology, molecular genetics to study primary human tumors and corresponding mouse models. We hope to apply this knowledge towards the design of clinical trials in the treatment of patients with lymphoma, leukemia, and myeloma. Projects offer both ‘wet lab’ experimental work and computational biology opportunities, and close interactions with a number of clinical and basic science collaborators at Stanford and elsewhere.

    Successful applicants will have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent, enjoy cross-disciplinary projects, and have interest and experience in any or all of the following areas: molecular biology, cancer biology, genetics or genomics, next generation high-throughput sequencing; mouse models; computational biology and bioinformatics; immunology; or pathology/lab medicine. S/he should be highly self-motivated, have excellent written and oral communication skills, capacity for both independent and effective team work, and a strong desire to learn. A strong research background and publication record will also be required.

    To apply, please email, with subject “Postdoctoral application” the following: a cover letter describing your previous research interests and training, a CV, copies of relevant papers, and the names and contact information for three references to the email address at the bottom of the page.

    (2) Description: The laboratories of Dr. Max Diehn and Dr. Ash Alizadeh are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow with bioinformatics training interested in applying next generation sequencing approaches to stem cell biology and cancer biology. The laboratories are located within Stanford’s Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine and Cancer Institute. The Diehn and Alizadeh laboratories are applying next generation sequencing technologies, including RNA, exome, and whole genome sequencing, to a variety of basic and translational research projects.

    Candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D.  Prior evidence of creativity, productivity, and the ability to interact within a team are a must.  Candidates must have training in bioinformatics and genomics, with a strong preference for prior experience in analysis of next generation sequencing data sets.

    Please send a CV and brief statement detailing reasons for interest in the position as well as contact information for references to the e-mail address below.
