Assistant Professor, Early Drug Development

Stanford Cancer Institute

December 20, 2023
The Stanford Cancer Institute (SCI) seeks a fellowship-trained specialist in medical oncology to join our Early Drug Development Program as an Assistant Professor in the University Medical Line or University Tenure Line. The successful candidate should be a fellowship-trained specialist in medical oncology, with a focus on early-phase clinical trials. Additionally, she or he should have a demonstrated track record or significant potential in obtaining research funding, along with a history of publishing in leading scientific or medical journals.

The SCI leads an Early Drug Development Program focused on Phase I clinical trials in oncology. These are typically studies where first in-human novel cancer therapeutics clinical trials are developed for our patients, incorporating biomarkers in their clinical design. Increasingly, these Phase I studies serve an important role in the oncology drug development ecosystem where not only toxicity, but efficacy data are acquired with the goal of improving the standard of care for oncology patients.

This position is open to candidates trained in developing and conducting early phase innovative clinical/translational trials with targeted agents and immunotherapeutics. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a clinical/translational research, teach graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical fellows, and participate in the Oncology clinics. Eligible candidates must have an MD or MD/PhD and be board-certified in medical oncology.

The successful candidate will have experience working with a broad spectrum of investigators and, preferably, a dedicated interest in a particular disease area and/or focus on a therapeutic pathway, or experience with genomics and other biomarkers.
