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 Line or the Non-tenure Line (Research). 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 in September and accepted until position is filled.

The Ophthalmology Department, School of Medicine, and Stanford University value faculty who will help foster an inclusive academic environment for colleagues, students, and staff with a wide range of backgrounds, identities, and outlooks. Candidates may choose to include as part of their research and teaching statements a brief discussion about how their work and experience will further these ideals.
