The University of Washington’s Department of Ophthalmology is currently recruiting for a full-time clinician scientist specializing in pediatric medical and surgical retina. This position will be based at Seattle Children’s Hospital. This position is a 12-month service period appointment (July 1 – June 30). Anticipated start date is July, 2022.

This appointment may be at the rank of Assistant, Associate or full Professor, without tenure due to source of funding, and will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. Qualified candidates of all levels of experience will be considered.

University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service. The successful applicant will be expected to pursue substantial teaching and scholarly research in the area of ophthalmology with the goal of becoming an independent clinician scientist.

Responsibilities include .25 FTE of clinical care, including evaluation of pediatric inherited retinal degeneration, interpretation of electroretinograms, resident and fellow supervision and training and teaching of medical students.

Laboratory space as needed and startup support will be provided. If required, training in electrophysiology interpretation will be provided.

The successful candidate will be expected to work with diverse community populations. We actively welcome and engage faculty, students and staff from diverse backgrounds and reflect the importance of diversity through leadership and innovation within education, research, and patient care.  All are encouraged to apply.

Candidates must have an MD degree (or foreign equivalent) and have completed ophthalmology residency (or foreign equivalent) and one or more years of postgraduate training in the management of retinal disease including, but not limited to, a surgical or medical retina fellowship.

Applicants must be American Board of Ophthalmology-certified (or foreign equivalent) or Board eligible and eligible for licensure in the State of Washington.

In order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa, graduates of foreign (non-U.S,) medical schools must show successful completion of all three steps of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) or equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
