Assistant or Associate Professor

The Department of Ophthalmology at NYU Langone Health invites applications for tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant and Associate Professor levels in fundamental basic science vision-related research in health and diseases of the anterior eye. The Department chaired by Joel S. Schuman, MD., has grown rapidly in all sub-specialty areas of Ophthalmology. In 2018 the department recruited Shukti Chakravarti, PhD, as the Director of Basic Science Research. Dr. Chakravarti’s research interests include extracellular matrix biology in ocular response to injury, infection and inflammation, stem cell and tissue regeneration. Her group is investigating the genetics of keratoconus and other anterior eye diseases and mouse models of corneal diseases. The department has a multidisciplinary ocular imaging laboratory with major interests in glaucoma and animal models. Other strong basic science departments and institutes with interest in vision research include Neuroscience, Cell Biology, Pathology and Microbiology. State-of-the art NYU core facilities in proteomics, genomic and transcriptomic analyses, flow cytometry and microscopy are added attractions for applicants.

The Department of Ophthalmology is seeking applicants with a strong research program on fundamental questions that relate to the anterior eye. Their research may involve developmental and cell biology, immunology, stem cell and tissue regeneration, genetic disorders of the eye and animal models. Successful candidates will develop strong research programs with collaborations across institutes and departments and actively participate in one or more graduate programs. The candidates will have a PhD, MD-PhD or an MD. Start-up and salary ranges will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. For considerations candidates should apply via interfolio apply.interfolio.com/62687 . Candidates are responsible for having three letters of recommendations sent directly by the referees.
