Job Type

A postdoctoral position is available to study the signaling mechanism of ocular development and diseases.  The eye is the most accessible part of the central nervous system for studying “in vivo” cell biology and developing therapeutic interventions.  Among the current projects, we are studying development and regeneration of the lacrimal gland, crosstalk between growth factor signaling and cell adhesion in the lens and synaptogenesis and degeneration of the retina. We seek a postdoctoral fellow to combine cell biology and mouse genetics to study one of these areas.  Potential candidate should be highly motivated with a Ph.D. degree in biomedical science and a strong background in biochemistry and cell biology.  Experience in mouse genetics is desirable but not necessary.  The successful postdoc candidate will receive training in genetic, molecular and biochemical approaches in vision research, interacting with basic scientists and clinicians in a multidisciplinary environment.
