Stanford University is seeking applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the Department of Developmental Biology in the Beckman Center for Molecular and Genetic Medicine in the School of Medicine.  We are interested in candidates who will establish a vigorous and innovative research program studying fundamental biological processes in any experimental system. 

We view Developmental Biology in the broadest sense, encompassing Microbes to Humans and employing a wide variety of molecular and genetic approaches as well as systems level biology, engineering, and computational science. Current faculty in the department of Developmental Biology use a diverse range of genetic, genomic, cell biological, biochemical, and computational approaches to study many different organisms, including microbes, worms, flies, fish, mice, and humans. For more information on our department see:

The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching. This includes mentoring of graduate student and postdoctoral trainees. Individuals appointed as UTL Assistant Professors in the Department of Developmental Biology will have completed significant postdoctoral research experience and are required to hold a Ph.D. Their accomplishments during graduate and postgraduate training should identify them as creative investigators with the promise of achieving true distinction in research. Individuals without formal teaching experience should have demonstrated during their postdoctoral training a commitment to develop the skills necessary for first-rate teaching and mentoring. The successful candidate should also demonstrate a commitment to supporting a diverse, equitable and inclusive research environment.

Interested applicants should visit to submit a single pdf file containing a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests, and a statement of up to one page discussing the candidate’s approach to diversity, outreach, service and/or mentoring. Applicants will also be asked to provide the names and email addresses of three references. Consideration of applicant files will begin October 1, 2022, and will continue until the position is filled.
