The Department of Ophthalmology at Stanford University seeks a highly qualified candidate to join the Department as Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor in the University Tenure or Non-Tenure Line. We are particularly interested in candidates who have a PhD, MD-PhD, or equivalent degree including OD, in a related field.

  • The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching.
  • The major criterion for appointment for faculty in the Non-tenure Line (Research) is evidence of high-level performance as a researcher for whose special knowledge a programmatic need exists.

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

We expect the successful candidate to demonstrate 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 of September and accepted until position is filled.
