Open Rank Faculty Search

Department of Biomedical Data Science

Stanford University School of Medicine


The Department of Biomedical Data Science at Stanford University is recruiting a new faculty member at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Full Professor level to contribute to the research and educational activities of the Department. The Department was founded in the fall of 2015. We define biomedical data science as the study of biomedical data and information, of how such data and information may be structured, and of how analysis and processing of biomedical data and information will lead to new discoveries and to advances in health and healthcare. Faculty members in the Department are dedicated to the development of novel computational and statistical methods for acquiring, representing, storing, analyzing, and applying biological and clinical data at all scales. We seek applicants with primary interests in those broad areas, who can apply their expertise in biomedical informatics and/or biostatistics to meet departmental goals.


Appointment will be in the University Tenure Line, where the predominant criterion for appointment is a major commitment to research and teaching. Faculty rank will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidates.


An MD, MD/PhD, or PhD in data science, biostatistics, statistics, biomedical informatics, clinical informatics, computer science, biomedical engineering or a related area is required. We anticipate that the successful candidate will devote 70–80% time to research and the remainder to teaching and other responsibilities.


The Department of Biomedical Data Science brings together Stanford’s world-class faculty in biostatistics, biomedical informatics, and related disciplines. We are particularly interested in recruiting faculty candidates who, in the broadest sense, will help us to round out our commitment to the study of biomedical data, their structure, and their use, particularly in clinical informatics. More information about the Department is available at


Full consideration will be given to applications that arrive by December 8, 2017.
