Post-doctoral position in Houston

A post-doctoral position, supported by the Houston Area Vision Training
Grant from NEI, is available, starting as early as January 1, 2007, for a
period of 1 year.  Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents
with a recent a Ph.D., O.D., M.D. or equivalent.  

The Houston Area Vision Training Grant is held jointly between the
University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and The University of
Houston College of Optometry.  The research projects of the participating
faculty cover a wide range of Vision Science, including Visual Neuroscience,
ERG, Visual Development, Visual Optics, Retinal Circuitry, Molecular
Genetics, Glaucoma, Ocular Surface and Anterior Segment.  Together, we form
a wide ranging collaborative group with many common interests and
outstanding research facilities.  Applicants  with expertise in
electrophysiology, imaging or cell and molecular biology are especially
encouraged to apply, but all areas are welcome.

Applications and enquiries, by email, to Dr. Stephen C. Massey
(steve.massey at uth.tmc.edu <mailto:steve.massey at uth.tmc.edu> )  at UT or Dr.
Laura Frishman at UH (lfrishman at uh.edu <mailto:lfrishman at uh.edu> ).
Applicants may also contact the appropriate mentor at either institution.
