The State University of New York, State College of Optometry, located
in New York City, invites applications for two open rank faculty
positions. A strategic priority of SUNY Optometry is to expand its
clinical and basic research programs building on its team of leading
ocular and vision researchers. Priority will be given to applicants
with significant research accomplishment in visual function and/or eye
care and demonstrated ability/potential to attract substantial
extramural funding. The area of vision research is open, but
individuals involved in clinical applications and translational
research are especially encouraged to apply, and we aim to fill at
least one position with an individual engaged in patient-based
research. A capability to interact with the College's clinical faculty
is desirable.

Applications (in pdf format) and inquiries should be sent by email to:
Dr. Benjamin Backus, Search Committee Chair, facsearch at sunyopt.edu
(receipt will be confirmed). Please include a cover letter, a
statement summarizing research interests, a curriculum vitae including
a complete list of publications, three sample reprints of published
research, and evidence of ability to teach at the graduate/Ph.D. or
professional/O.D. level (if available). Applicants at the level of
Assistant Professor should also provide three letters of reference
sent either by email to Dr. Backus or by regular mail to Ms. Debra
Berger, Faculty Search Committee, SUNY Optometry, 33 W. 42nd St., New
York, NY 10036). Complete applications that are received by Friday,
January 30, 2009 will be given priority; applications received after
