Division of Hematology, Oncology, Stem Cell Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine
The Division of Hematology, Oncology, Stem Cell Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine is seeking outstanding candidates for appointment to the Clinician Educator Line (CE). Candidates should have considerable clinical expertise in the pediatric hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The Pediatric Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Program at Stanford is rapidly expanding with substantial support from Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. The successful candidate will be expected to provide excellent clinical care for the patients of the Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Program, to engage in clinical research, and to participate in multi-institutional clinical trials. Existing clinical trials include studies on hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for leukemia, hemoglobinopathies, disorders of immune regulation/function, and metabolic diseases. The Division works closely with the Center for Definitive and Curative Medicine (CDCM) to investigate cellular and gene therapies in phase I/II clinical trials for diseases including severe combined immune deficiency, hemoglobinopathies, and metabolic diseases with a focus on graft manipulation and adoptive post-transplantation cell therapies. The CDCM is supported by a 25,000 sq. ft. GMP Laboratory (Laboratory for Cell and Gene Medicine). The position will also include teaching residents, fellows, and hospitalists in the program. The successful candidate will interact with other programs at Stanford including, but not limited to, the adult Bone Marrow Transplant Program, Stanford Cancer Immunotherapy Program, Stanford Stem Cell Institute and Stanford Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection.
The major criterion for appointment, reappointment, and promotion is excellence in the overall performance of clinical care and teaching appropriate to the programmatic needs that the individual fulfills. If the candidate has active scholarly activity or fulfills an administrative role, those factors may also be taken into consideration when evaluating excellence.
The successful candidate will be appointed as a Clinical Assistant Professor or Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Stanford University School of Medicine. Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Applications are presently being accepted, and the review process is ongoing. Interested candidates should send a cover letter and curriculum vitae to Dr. Alice Bertaina via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
