Stanford seeks to hire at least four tenure-line faculty who study the impact of race in STEM fields. This includes research and development in broad areas such as medicine, engineering, computer science, sustainability, and environmental justice, including the development of methods and technologies that reduce bias and harm. We seek to support, deepen, and enhance the important research and teaching in these areas to strengthen our existing programs and develop new impactful programs. Appointments will be made in the following schools: School of Engineering, School of Humanities and Sciences, School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, School of Medicine, and other relevant STEM departments and units.
Although there is the expectation that emphasis will be given to appointments at the assistant professor level, other career stages will be considered. We are particularly interested in candidates with outstanding records of achievement in developing or implementing innovative approaches or technologies in the broad areas of their discipline. The teaching and research expectations associated with these positions will vary accordingly across schools and departments.
Review of applications will begin on February 1, 2021 and will continue until all of the positions are filled.
