The Department of Ophthalmology at Stanford University seeks highly qualified candidates for faculty positions in the University Tenure Line or the Non-tenure Line (Research) at the level of Assistant, Associate, or full Professor.

The candidate should hold a PhD, MD-PhD, or equivalent degree including OD, in a related field.

Faculty rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

We seek outstanding applicants with demonstrated research distinction.  The strongest candidates will be scientists or clinician-scientists who demonstrate a track record of, or commitment to, a career incorporating scholarly activity, either laboratory-based or human subjects research. Evidence of success or potential for success with external peer review and funding is strongly desired. Candidates’ program and goals should emphasize ocular- or vision-related research, broadly defined. 

Applications will be reviewed beginning August 15, 2022 and accepted until position is filled.

The Department of Ophthalmology, School of Medicine, and Stanford University value faculty who are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion.
