Description The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford has a great tradition of fundamental science, translational and clinical research, subspecialty expertise, multidisciplinary education, and influential leadership. The overarching aim of creating a better future is predicated on our shared pursuit of discovery across the basic, translational, clinical, and population sciences and on our collaborative efforts to translate new knowledge in our training of scientists and expert clinicians, in supporting the careers of outstanding faculty and learners, and in addressing the needs of communities, local and global.

The Department is currently seeking two full-time Professoriate faculty members at the rank of Assistant Professor in the Non-Tenure Line (Research). These are positions for scientists who are specializing in computational neuroscience that our ability to understand increasingly large and complex datasets that provide profound opportunities to advance our understanding of brain development and brain health.

The chosen candidates will be expected to engage in translational scholarly research that harnesses the power of “big data” and the development of advanced computational strategies for analytic integration of multidisciplinary conceptual and factual information across related dimensions of inquiry, such as neuroimaging, neuropsychological functioning, behavior, and genomics, among other important underlying biological and psychological aspects of brain development and brain health.


Candidates must hold a doctoral-level degree and have stamped themselves as creative and promising investigators with proven ability to obtain external funding, as well as outstanding performance, or promise for outstanding performance, as a teacher and mentor.


Individuals appointed as Assistant Professors in the Research Line will have completed one or two years of postdoctoral research experience and, where applicable, will have completed housestaff training. Their accomplishments during graduate and postgraduate training should already have stamped them as creative and promising investigators. There should be evidence of the ability to obtain external funding as well as the promise of outstanding performance as a supervisor of graduate students. Appointment is based on evidence of (or the promise of) high-level performance in research, and (if applicable) teaching and clinical care.
