The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching. The major criterion for appointment as Clinician Educators is excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, teaching, administrative and/or scholarship appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill. Academic rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

The Neuroradiology Division consists of an experienced and world-renowned faculty specializing in interpreting imaging studies of the brain, spine, and head and neck, in performing image-guided procedures and biopsies of the spine and head and neck, and in neurointervention. We offer minimally-invasive treatment of cerebral aneurysms and other cerebral vascular malformations, stenting of carotid arteries, vertebroplasty, and transvenous embolization of CSF fistulae, as well as urgent stroke management services. We have developed a unique expertise in advanced neuroimaging techniques including dual-energy CT, functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging and tractography, and CT and MR perfusion imaging, including non-contrast methods such as arterial spin label perfusion. We have an active focus on brain “stress testing,” using advanced blood flow imaging with pharmacological challenge to evaluate cerebrovascular reserve. As part of a Comprehensive Certified Stroke Center, we offer rapid, dedicated stroke MR and CT vascular and perfusion imaging to differentiate between completed stroke and at-risk tissue. We offer additional advanced imaging services specifically tailored to support our colleagues in multiple clinical specialties, to support a busy Emergency Department, and as part of Level 1 Trauma Center care.

Stanford Hospital & Clinics has expanded its hospital facilities to accommodate new medical technology and increased capacity needs. The new facilities feature private patient rooms, an enlarged Level-1 trauma center and Emergency Department, and new surgical, diagnostic and treatment rooms. Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital also expanded in order to meet growing community needs for specialized pediatric and obstetric care. The expansion provides patients and doctors with the most modern  clinical  advancements  and  technology  to  address  the  specialized  needs  of patients and their families. Multiple outpatient sites offer routine advanced imaging technologies and provide facilities for outpatient fluoroscopic- and CT-guided procedures. The Palo Alto VA hospital is also an important part of the planned growth at Stanford and supports numerous specialized research programs. Exceptional opportunities exist for research in all aspects of neuroradiology, both within the department and also across departmental boundaries at both the medical school and the university-wide levels. Stanford University has major initiatives and strong focus in the neurosciences, with significant cross-campus activities in this area.

The successful candidate will have an MD or MD/PhD degree(s) or equivalent, and will contribute their clinical expertise at the Stanford Healthcare inpatient and outpatient sites. Responsibilities will include clinical service, teaching, and, if applicable, scholarly activity. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with and teach medical students, residents, and fellows and lead clinical interdisciplinary conferences. The candidate will be expected to be able to interpret the spectrum of neuroradiological CT and MRI studies (brain, spine, head & neck) and have or develop fluency with advanced imaging techniques (e.g., perfusion and functional imaging).  As part of clinical obligations, the candidate will participate in the neuroradiology call schedule.  There is the opportunity for candidate-driven initiatives to improve clinical care and engage in collaborative research. 

Candidates must be ABR-certified radiologists who have completed an ACGME-accredited fellowship in Neuroradiology and who have or are eligible for a Certificate of Added Qualification in Neuroradiology. Proficiency with image-guided neuroradiology procedure skills (lumbar puncture, myelography) is expected. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills with clinicians, patients, and trainees are required. The Neuroimaging Division at Stanford has leaders in all aspects of neuroradiology, including Interventional Neuroradiology and advanced applications of non-invasive imaging of the brain, spine, and head and neck. The focus of the Neuroimaging Division is to perform clinical neuroradiology at the highest level, to engage in important and novel research, and to train the future leaders in academic neuroradiology.
