Posdoctoral Training at
The Smith Kettlewell Eye Research Institute
San Francisco, USA

The Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute announces three postdoctoral 
fellowships funded by the National Institutes of Health, National 
Research Service Award Program from the National Eye Institute.  
Smith-Kettlewell is a non-profit, independent research institute in San 
Francisco, California dedicated to basic and clinical research in human 
vision and sensory deficits.  The fellowships are open to any field of 
visual neuroscience, oculomotility, sensory rehabilitation and 
translational research represented by the interests of the program 
preceptors.  The fellowships require a doctoral degree and US 
citizenship or permanent residency and are normally awarded for two 
years. Funding for the second year is contingent on renewal of the NRSA 
training grant.

Review of applications will begin in June 2006 for a start date on or 
after September 30, 2006. 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. Tony Norcia at amn at ski.org.
