The Stanford University School of Medicine seeks highly qualified candidates for a full-time Non-Tenure Line (Teaching) faculty position in the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health (EPH). EPH is a basic science department within the School of Medicine. EPH is the primary hub for epidemiologic teaching and research at Stanford. The teaching content includes clinical research, with MS and PhD degree programs, an undergraduate co-terminal master’s degree, an on-line certificate program, and strong ties to numerous training and research programs throughout the Medical School and University. Stanford is a highly interdisciplinary university, with the medical school sharing the same unitary campus with departments and programs in a wide range of quantitative, social, physical, and biologic sciences. The major criterion for appointment for faculty in the Non-Tenure Line (Teaching) is evidence of high-level performance as a teacher for whose special knowledge and pedagogical skills a programmatic need exists.
