Department of Bioengineering
Stanford Bioengineering is a dynamic and rapidly growing department within the Stanford's School of Engineering and School of Medicine. For more than a decade, we have sought to advance bioengineering as a fundamental engineering discipline grounded in basic sciences and powered by a unique set of engineering concepts and principles, capable of realizing many diverse applications. Our community ranges broadly and includes some of the world's most successful leaders in bioengineering technology and business. Our staff are critical to supporting our organization's goals and enabling our ongoing mission to conduct cutting-edge research, educate the next generation of leaders and scientists, and continue to formulate innovative solutions to global challenges.
This position is an opportunity to contribute to one of the most exciting new frontiers of computational biology. Specifically, the creation of a
Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 12000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
