Dear Colleagues,


We write to bring your attention to two faculty leadership opportunities.  


The Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Research (VPDoR) is now accepting nominations for two faculty leadership positions: Senior Associate Vice Provost for Research and Senior Associate Vice Provost for Clinical Research Governance. Both positions will be part-time, and based in the Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Research. The deadline for all nominations and applications is May 17, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. PST.


The Senior Associate Vice Provost for Research will assume leadership responsibilities for research initiatives and opportunities that strengthen collaboration across campus, including between Stanford and SLAC, and with external entities, including private, public, and international organizations. The job responsibilities will focus on the development of strategy and management of relationships to enhance Stanford’s research competitiveness and impact.


The Senior Associate Vice Provost for Clinical Research Governance will assume leadership responsibilities in relation to oversight of the University’s large and diverse program of clinical research, much of which Stanford faculty members conduct at Stanford Health Care and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. The responsibilities will focus on the development and coordination of efforts to ensure that the University’s clinical research conforms to the highest ethical standards and complies with all applicable regulatory requirements.


Applications and nominations should be directed to vpdordean@stanford.edu and received by 5:00pm on May 17, 2022.  Applicants (or nominators) should provide a letter of intent (or recommendation), and a copy of the candidate’s CV.
