The Flaum Eye Institute has a tenure-track position available for scientists working in retina research with a desire to utilize high resolution retinal imaging. A strategic goal of the Flaum Eye Institute is to develop and apply innovative new capabilities to study the structure and function of the retina in healthy and diseased eyes. This includes basic research on a number of animal model systems including (but not limited to) mouse and non-human primate systems. Research may also involve human imaging and the translation of new retinal imaging methods to their use in clinical applications.

This position will involve a primary appointment in the Flaum Eye Institute. The successful candidate will have opportunities to work with a team of faculty developing and applying adaptive optics imaging (Advanced Retinal Imaging Alliance). Candidates with experience developing an advanced high-resolution ophthalmic imaging such as OCT, SLO, fundus and two-photon systems are strongly encouraged to apply. Potential collaborators and excellent graduate students are also available through related programs; including the Center for Visual Science (a strong, university-wide community of 35 faculty engaged in vision research), the Neuroscience program, Biomedical Engineering, Biomedical Genetics and the Institute of Optics.


Preferred candidates will have a background in retina studies, should hold a PhD or MD or equivalent and have demonstrated significant research achievement and the ability or potential to attract extramural funding. Depending on qualifications an appointment will be made at the assistant, associate or full professor level.
