The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is seeking a fellowship-trained, BC/BE full-time faculty member in the area of neuro-ophthalmology at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level, however, final rank and tenure status will be commensurate with selected candidate's experience. Both clinician-educators and clinician-scientists are welcome to apply. The qualified applicant will be expected to provide outstanding clinical care and participate actively in the residency training program. With the clinical practice extending from our main campus downtown (including the Veterans Affairs Medical Center) to some of our suburban locations, a very comprehensive and diverse patient population awaits.

Both laboratory space and resources in the Department are available for individuals with basic research interest, and there is potential for participation in the Optic Nerve Research Institute.
The campus is located in the heart of downtown Baltimore, right near Camden Yards and M&T Bank Football Stadium. It is only minutes away from the Inner Harbor, Maryland Science Center, and the National Aquarium. In addition to Baltimore's many outstanding attractions, from fine arts and orchestras to professional sports teams, first-class dining and shopping, and numerous historical sites, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City are within easy reach, as are beaches to the East and mountains to the West.
