Description: Postdoctoral training at
The Smith Kettlewell Eye Research Institute
San Francisco, CA
The Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute announces the
availability of postdoctoral fellowships. Smith-Kettlewell is a
non-profit, independent research institute in San Francisco, California
historically dedicated to basic and clinical research in human vision
with an emphasis on strabismus and its associated sensory and motor
conditions, and on visual rehabilitation. The fellowships are open
to any field of visual neuroscience, oculomotor control and
low-vision/blindness rehabilitation. Translational or clinically
relevant aspects of these topics are particularly sought after. Details
of the research interests of individual preceptors are listed below. The
fellowships require a doctoral degree and are normally awarded for two
years. Applications from individuals with disabilities or other
underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged.
Applications will be accepted until January 31, 2014. Details of the program and application procedures are to be found at http://www.ski.org/General/Fellowships. If you have further questions, please email Dr. Preeti Verghese at firstname.lastname@example.org.
