The Department of Ophthalmology at Stanford University seeks highly qualified candidates for full time faculty positions in the University Tenure Line or the Non-tenure Line (Research) at the level of Assistant, Associate, or full Professor. Faculty rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

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

Faculty or academic 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 physician-scientists who demonstrate a track record of, or commitment to, a career incorporating scholarly activity, either laboratory-based or human subjects research, including evidence of success with external peer review and funding. Candidates’ program and goals should emphasize ocular- or vision-related research, broadly defined. 

Applications will be reviewed beginning September 1, 2021 and accepted until October 31, 2021.

Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Stanford welcomes applications from all who would bring additional dimensions to the University’s research, teaching and clinical missions.

The Department of Ophthalmology, School of Medicine, and Stanford University value faculty who are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. Candidates may optionally include as part of their research or teaching statement a brief discussion of how their work will further these ideals.
