Stanford Offers a Running Start to the Right Neuropathology Candidate

Another excellent neuropathology job is available in the San Francisco Bay Area with Dr. Hannes Vogel. (Dr. Vogel is pictured with a ribbon just after finishing the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run with a time of exactly 23 hours, 49 minutes, and 55 seconds along with "Team Vogel", including Vogel's wife of one week, Monique, immediately to his right. Most readers will recognize Dr. Greg Fuller of MD Anderson Cancer Center at the far right, who came to the event all the way from Houston). Stanford is seeking a neuropathologist with interest in neurodegenerative disorders. Here are the details:
The Department of Pathology at Stanford University School of Medicine seeks an academic Neuropathologist with a research interest and a record of accomplishment in the area of neurodegenerative disorders for appointment at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Professor in the Medical Center Line or University Tenure Line. Faculty rank, and whether the appointment is made in the Medical Center Line or University Tenure Line, will be determined by the qualifications, experience, and interests of the successful candidate.
Neuropathology handles each year approximately 800 neurosurgical specimens from Stanford University Medical Center (SUMC), and an additional 600 consultation specimens from outside of SUMC, including over 300 muscle biopsies from SUMC and non-SUMC patients; the service also is responsible for approximately 250 brain examinations annually. Duties will include sign-out responsibilities in surgical and autopsy neuropathology, including frozen section analysis, but the amount of time spent on clinical responsibilities will be greater if the individual is appointed in the Medical Center Line than for one appointed into the University Tenure Line. It is expected that the successful candidate will serve as the participating neuropathologist on program and core grants in the area of neurodegenerative disorders. If the successful candidate is in the Medical Center Line, she or he also will contribute to the expansion of our diagnostic services in neuropathology to those outside of SUMC, through our consult service. Candidates must hold an M.D. or an M.D., Ph.D. and board certification in anatomic pathology and neuropathology, and are required to hold or to be eligible for a current license to practice medicine in the State of California.
The successful candidate will be expected to lead and/or contribute to clinical, translational and/or basic research projects and to participate in training clinical residents and fellows. Departmental support is available for suitable research projects by Medical Center Line faculty, whereas University Tenure Line faculty are expected to derive a substantial portion of their salary and research support from extramural sources. Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, as well as a brief description of research accomplishments and plans for future research. These, with the names of three references, should be sent to:
Stephen J. Galli, M.D.
Professor and Chair
c/o Ms. Cynthia L. Llanes
Department of Pathology
Stanford University School of Medicine
Stanford, CA 94305
