The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison invites applications and nominations for the position of chair of the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences (DOVS).

 

The Department has 50 full and part-time faculty members, as well as a robust panel of senior scientists and staff. They provide outstanding clinical service, as well as nationally renowned research and educational programs.


The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences is ranked in the top 10 in National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding among academic departments of ophthalmology. Competitive research funding from all sources exceeds $16 million.

 

Investigators have access to a rich research environment, with close interactions with major independent campus centers, including the McPherson Eye Research Institute, the National Primate Research Center, the Waisman Center and UW Carbone Cancer Center.

 

The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences offers a complete and comprehensive array of clinical services at 13 sites, including seven outside of Madison. The department provides education and training programs at multiple levels, including medical student, graduate student, resident and post-doctoral fellowship.

 

We seek a recognized leader with an outstanding academic background, strong clinical and research credentials, demonstrated commitment to education, experience in mentoring junior faculty, and proven leadership and management skills. The chair will provide professional and administrative leadership of the highest quality to this distinguished department in its teaching, research and clinical missions.

 

The successful candidate will have a compelling vision for the future of ophthalmology and visual sciences in a leading academic medical center. Candidates must have an MD or MD/PhD degree or equivalent, board certification in ophthalmology, evidence of sustained high-level leadership experience in an academic setting, and accomplishments as a clinical, basic, or translational, or population health scholar and teacher, that meet the standards for a tenured faculty appointment at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
