[visionlist] Postdoctoral Fellow at Smith-Kettlewell, San Francisco

The Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute announces the opening of an exciting opportunity to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship position funded by an NEI Institutional Training Grant.

We are seeking individuals interested in visual processing in normal and clinical populations, with emphasis in one or more of the following areas: visual development, strabismus and amblyopia, eye
movements, visual attention, and brain plasticity using approaches such as psychophysics, eye tracking, clinical assessment, computational modeling, EEG and fMRI. 

Smith-Kettlewell is a uniquely attractive place to receive postdoctoral training in vision research and related fields. Our program offers the flexibility to design an individualized
training plan tailored to achieve each fellow’s specific career goals. We train fellows to become independent scientists, with strong support and encouragement for fellows to propose and pursue their own research in close collaboration and mentorship with
one or more of our experienced principal investigators. Many of our fellows who have successfully established their own funded research programs have even been invited to become principal investigators at Smith-Kettlewell with fruitful and fulfilling careers.

The fellowships require a Ph.D. or M.D. and are normally awarded for two years, with our most successful fellows often being invited to continue as sponsored
investigators. Applications from individuals with disabilities or other underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged. The NEI Training Grant requires that fellows be US citizens or permanent residents. 

Applications will be accepted until Feb 24, 2017. Details of the program and application procedures can be found at http://ift.tt/2jjga62
apply, please contact one of the mentors to discuss and develop a research application. If you have further questions, please email Dr. Preeti Verghese at fellowships@ski.org.
